Lost Half Tax Card

Hi

Can someone tell me whether I can replace this and pay a fee or do I need to fork out the full price for a new one?

Cheers

Reg

It costs 30CHF for a replacement last time I checked. Go to a main train station with your passport and tell them you lost it and you want a replacement.

Re: Lost Half Tax Card

I ordered my replacement on Friday, and found my "lost" card this morning. Any possible chance of getting my 30 chuffs back? I already went to the local station and the clerk said it was too late, but I don't think he really tried/cared enough to find out.

I know it's a shot in the dark, but it's worth a shot!

Re: Lost Half Tax Card

Highly unlikely unless you recalled it like 2 hours later.

What I did was keep one in my bag. Then If it got lost at least it will find it's way back to the SBB/me.

Re: Lost Half Tax Card

For anyone with a similar plea, it turns out that you can only cancel on the same day. If you want to do this, either go to the same desk where you cancelled or call 0848335577.

If you know somebody that looks exactly like you, but has a moustache then with a bit of work with a magic marker, you could sell him a cheap halbtax.


If he looks exactly like you, but doesn't have a moustache, then it might be worth the effort to grow one.
