Halbtax-Abo Can I buy this online?

Hi all I've obviously carried out a search on this but is it possible to buy this online or do I have to turn up in person at Zurich Hauptbahnhof.

Can't seem to find it on the zvv site anywhere.

The printout is the temporary one, you will get a plastic card per mail.

ok, they didnt ask me to upload a photo, I guess thats because I already had a Halbtax a few years ago and they must have one on file.

thanks for the help!

Indeed, they reused my earlier photo from their computer files and reissued my card.

All previous four travel cards carried the same picture and the 5th is due for renewal next month. Perhaps they might then need a fresh picture.

They use your picture for 10 years... I read it somewhere in the GA application, but now i can't remember. I've gone from shoulder length dark hair to short gray, but they still use the old picture and I've not had any trouble with my GA.

Re: Halbtax-Abo Can I buy this online?

There is one version of the Halbtax that cannot be bought online. This version is a trial card for non-residents.

More

Can be bought over the counter at SBB Bahnhof in Konstanz.
