Hi doglover1970,

Three Swiss Half Fare Cards plus a Swiss Family Card will most probably be the cheapest option for you. It allows you to purchase tickets at half the regular price, and the child will travel for free. If you prefer traveling without buying tickets you can look into the Swiss Pass. This page explains how to choose.

For hotels, please start here. For suggestions on what to do you can check the sections for Lucerne and the Jungfrau region.

Hi Annika

Thanks for your reply. Are we able to use credit card to buy the Swiss Pass or Swiss Half fare card? Or all need to be in cash?

My hotels at Lucerne & Interlaken are booked. Hope weather are fine for us to travel up to the mountains. Keeping our fingers crossed.

Hi doglover1970

Sure you can pay with credit cards. You can also pay in your own currency by buying online, see the price section of the pass pages I gave you. Also check the promotion section to see if any discounts apply for you.

Should the weather not cooperate then see our Lucerne and Interlaken pages for alternative activities. But I also hope you don't need alternatives!
