Season tickets

GA travelcard

The unlimited ticket for travel throughout Switzerland or for Lake Brienz and Lake Thun.

Unlimited travel on all routes served by BLS and SBB, as well as the routes covered by most private railway companies, the PostBus lines, nearly all boat lines and trams and buses in many Swiss cities. You'll also pay half-price on most mountain lifts/railways and benefit from discounts on RailAway offers as well. The GA travelcard for all of Switzerland is also now on the SwissPass.

 

Documents needed to purchase a GA travelcard for all of Switzerland

New customers must provide a colour passport photo and an official identity document. Please note that if you purchase a Familia GA travelcard, you will also need to provide a proof of residence document from your local government authority.

Buy your GA travelcard online For SwissPass holders

Do you already have a SwissPass? Then, you can also buy your general travelcard online.

The following general travelcards are available in the web shop invoiced on an annual and monthly basis.:

  • GA travelcard for adults
  • GA travelcard for children
  • GA travelcard for young adults
  • GA travelcard for 25 year-olds
  • GA travelcard for seniors

Travelcard combinations, such as a GA travelcard Duo Partner or Familia GA travelcard, must still be bought at a BLS travel centre.

Information

  • The travelcard is loaded onto your SwissPass. You’ll be sent a receipt by email after the purchase has been completed.
  • GA monthly invoice
    Purchase on account: Please note that only the first month is paid via Byjuno. For GA payments from the second month, you’ll get an invoice from SBB. Both invoices are sent independently of each other and may also overlap.
  • Automatic extension
    By purchasing your travelcard, you agree to an open-ended contract with automatic extension. Two months before expiry, you’ll receive a reminder with the latest possible cancellation date.
  • GA travelcard for children and GA travelcard for young adults
    Please note: For legal reasons, if you have not yet turned 18 years of age, you can only benefit from an automatic extension of your travelcard (necessary if a travelcard is paid monthly) if the adult contracting partner (e.g. the father or the mother) makes the purchase online, or rather you specify an adult contracting partner on the order form and they sign it.
  • Cancelling your GA travelcard
    You can cancel your travelcard six months after the first validation date at the earliest. If you no longer need your travelcard for the next validation period, you must cancel it by the latest possible cancellation date (at least 1 subscription month beforehand). You can find out what cancellation date is possible for your travelcard’s new validation period on swisspass.ch under “Abos ”. You will also be sent an early reminder in the post about your option to cancel.
  • Additional cancellation reminder
    You can set up a cancellation reminder by email or text message in addition to the reminder letter you’ll receive two months before your travelcard expires (swisspass.ch).
  • Minimum term of the travelcard
    The minimum contract for your GA travelcard is six months. It is not possible to cancel early before the six months have lapsed.
