Like many people before I have been wading through the various options regarding our families proposed 11 day trip to Switzerland in May, the party consisting of 2 adults and 2 youths (under 26).
I have looked at Swiss Pass, Swiss Pass Flexi and the half-price Swiss Card and have been reading many articles in the Forum of this site, but I have not heard mention of the Inter-rail card for Switzerland.
It does to seem to offer a much cheaper option for us than all the Swsis pass options. Granted Inter-rail doesn’t cover the Glacier Route from Disentis/Muster to Zermatt, doesn’t offer as many reductions on side tracks and doesn’t cover buses, but there is a large difference.
Swiss Pass 15 day 2 x 440 2 x 374 = 1628 CHF = £1190
Swiss Flexi 8 day 2 x 407 2 x 346 = 1506 CHF = £1100
Inter-Rail 8 day 2 x €239 2 x €176 = €830 = £640
Could anyone check I am reading all the relevant material correctly.
