Ok Newbie here so please be gentle.

We are 2 adults & 2 Grandchildren who will be visiting the Interlaken area between 25th & 30th August 2014 arriving in the region by car from Germany.

We wish to travel in the region using the cableways and trains as the fancy takes us and have no wish to buy tickets for every journey so we are looking for a multiday pass, we also want to visit the Jungfrau Joch.

So am I correct in assuming the following;

Buying a Swiss half fare card would enable us to get a family card?

The Family Card would enable the children to travel for free on ALL (including the Jungfrau train) when an adult buys a ticket?

The half fare card would enable 1 adult to purchase a 6 day Jungfraubahnen pass for chf185, whilst the other adult buys the same pass for chf250?

What discount would this give us on the tickets to the Jungfrau Joch and would the children travel free on the family card.

Hello ron9516,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! The Swiss Family Card is only for children, stepchildren and foster children, not for grandchildren. I would suggest to buy Regional-Passes Bernese Oberland or Jungfrau Railways Passes for the adults and Grandchild travelcards for the children. That will allow them to travel along for free, also to the Jungfraujoch (also see this page for links to the regular ticket prices).

A Swiss Half Fare Card is an option as well, if you don't need free unlimited traveling for the adults. Please see here for how to pick a pass.

The various pass pages I linked to have maps you can download to see exactly which discounts or free traveling is included.
