SBB 1 day travel pass without halbtax?

I thought in the past it was possible to buy a 1 day travel pass for the whole sbb network without a half fare card. When i look at the website this option is only available for holders of the half fare card, is this correct? there is no such thing as a 1day travel pass without half fare? which seems a bit silly, if im mistaken can someone kindly point out the right link.

You can get one without the halb tax from a lot of communities. You just have to reserve the date and pick it up.

yep, i know about those ones, but it seems strange this isnt available as an option from sbb. I could of sworn they were there before, because once i remember receiving a discount voucher for the 1day passes with and without the half fare card

Here is your link. It is a GA for the day, and you can even buy
it online.

Re: SBB 1 day travel pass without halbtax?

For at least a year, I don't know of a regular SBB/CFF day travel pass that you can get directly from SBB/CFF that doesn't require a half-fare card.

As mentioned, there are day travel passes sold at the commune / gemeinde offices that don't need a half-fare card. They are limited in number per day, though, and communes put limits on how many such passes can be bought by each resident per time period (e.g. in Lausanne, it is a maximum of 3 per month per resident). They are date fixed; you pick a date for the travel pass, and once you have signed and bought it, you can't exchange or refund it.

Also, sometimes Coop have promotions where you can buy open date day travel passes which also do not require a half-fare card.

The current SBB/CFF promotion for 2 or more people requires that at least one member of the group travelling has a half-fare card or GA.

Re: SBB 1 day travel pass without halbtax?

SBB no longer sell one-day passes for people without a halftax card. It's probably because they were too embarrassed to say how much it would have cost.
