SBB "days" ( ticket validity question )

Hi kids..
I’m just about to purchase a couple of SBB tickets on my phone and a little blip has come up
N.B, If you are not making the return journey on the same day , please buy a single ticket for each day.

OK.. That’s the catch… mrs. and I are going to Montreux tonight so probably returning to GE after ( well after ) midnight.. do you suppose SBB will consider that “the next day” ?

Unless the ticket specifies that it is valid for 24hr, I would assume that after midnight is "the next day".

but that's my two cents

Re: SBB "days" ( ticket validity question )

it turns out the trains back are at
23:19.... don't think we'll make that one.
23.54.... maybe ( and its "the same day" )
or the last train for the night at 1:08 .. if we don't catch that one we'll be sleeping in the gutter.

A day card is until the end of service that day. i.e. if you buy a day card today you could get on the train at 5am this morning and use the card through till the train goes to the depot at about 2am tomorrow morning.

I asked a ticket inspector this a couple of months back when my return train from Geneva wasn't getting me to HB until 11:55 and I still had to get an S-Bahn from HB at 12:15.

Re: SBB "days" ( ticket validity question )

The normal train tickets (not Mobilis) should be valid until about 4-5am next day.

If you are within Mobilis range:

Mobilis individual tickets entitle you to unlimited travel on all operating public transportation services within the applicable zones during the validity period. Mobilis individual tickets are valid for 30 minutes, 1,2, 3 or 4 hours depending on the area of validity (local tariff, short distance, zones). The last journey has to be completed when the period of validity expires.

The Mobilis Day Pas entitle you to unlimited travel on all operating public transportation services within the applicable zones during the validity period. Mobilis Day Passes are valid the print day till 5 am the next day. The last journey has to be completed when the period of validity expires.
