Hi, I am travelling with a group to Switzerland in July. We have 5 adults and 5 girls aged 15 or under.

The Berner Oberland Pass gives a price of c.£84.00 for age 6-15 years - but the Junior Card is c.£26 for a child 6-15 travelling with one or more parents.

Does this have to be a parent or can it be a full-price-paying adult ?

Thanks!

Thanks for joining us, Angmum!

The Junior Travelcards you're referring to are only meant for children traveling with their own parents, and passports may be checked by train conductors. For children that aren't your own, you can buy a discounted Regional-Pass for a fixed rate of only CHF 30. I'm not sure where you found the GBP 84 price, but I don't think that applies to your situation. Please find information on resellers and fares here.
