Cancelling GA

Hello,
currently I have GA paid monthly. It costs +- same as monthly ticket Lausanne-Geneva, and I have free travelling all over this place, which is great. I like the idea that I can cancel it anytime. But it is slightly more expensive than regular yearly one.
So here is question - how does it work with yearly GA? You pay once, and there is no way you can cancel it with getting partial money back? Something like half-fare, where they paid me proportional amount when switching to GA...
Thanx for any hints

Re: Cancelling GA

An annual GA costs circa CHF10 a day and can be cancelled ( on a sliding scale ) at any time after the first 4 months.

Depositing your GA travelcard.
If you don't need your GA travelcard for at least seven consecutive days, you can deposit it at a ticket counter for a maximum total of 30 days during its period of validity. We charge a fee of CHF 10 for each deposit period. We will issue you with an SBB receipt as a temporary replacement for your GA travelcard valid up to three days prior to the official date of deposit and three days after the official date of retrieval.
