Expired swisspass, abo valid?

Hello, I’m searching for some help on behalf of my wife.

She has cancelled her swisspass including halbtax due to our plans to return home in the summer, the last day for the pass was on 3.2.18, however her travel card linked to the pass is valid until 8.2.18.

Would she still be able to use the remaining days on her pass or will she have to purchase a new month pass on Monday 5.2.18.

Looking for quick answers where possible.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Expired swisspass, abo valid?

I would love to visit the office however that would mean my wife possibly traveling without a valid ticket before hand, I’ve already tried emailing the SBB 3 days ago with no response and so thought to ask here as I hope someone will know.

Hmm Leaving out all the information which one would need to answer the questions.

Let us assume it is a monthly ZVV abo and the canceled SwissPass was in fact a HalbTax-abo. In this case the monthly Abo is still valid and the SwissPass card acts as a Photo ID. If she needs any extension tickets she would have to pay the full fare.

I was thinking all tickets that one buys are shown on the SwissPass. Wrong. Only the subsriptions like half fare or monthtly subscription. Really dont see why they cant include the purchase of an individual ticket on the Swiss Pass.

Re: Expired swisspass, abo valid?

I have a similar unknown.

My old SwissPass was blocked because the photo had faded and they replaced it with a new one.

I used my old card for Mobility and Catch-Car access. The SBB guy didn't know whether the Mobility and Catch-Car would be working on my old card, new card or neither (because it's blocked in the system). I guess I'll find out next time I try to use a car.
