What is the best way for 2 to travel by train (like first class) starting in for 2 days Zurich then going to Lucerne for 2 days then 3 days in Inerlaken area from there we need to go to Basel. Thanks
Hi Brad, welcome to MySwissAlps,
There are various options, like the Swiss Travel Pass and Swiss Half Fare Card. In order to choose you first need to know all of your travel and sightseeing plans, so day trips with cable cars/mountain trains included. Then you can pick the best pass as explained here.
Please let us know if you need more help.
I did not not see swiss travel pass for first class? Do you know if the Swiss half fair card works for first class?
The Swiss Travel Pass is available for first class as well. Just visit any of the websites listed on myswissalps.com/ swisstravelpass/ price. The easiest option is to go to www.swissrailways.com/ en and print it at home (pick the delivery option called "Online Ticket").
The Half fare card works on both classes.
That is how I use ine...2ndclass fr short trips, first class for longer ones.
Looks to me like a better deal swiss travel pass for the short rides that i will be taking?
I don't know much about passes since I carry a long (resident's) half fare card.
Arno gave you some links to help.
He and Annika are the experst.
