Hello Naveed. You can either choose a free travel day or 50% discount on your first day (which option is best, depends on your other plans and whether you need free travel days for those trips). The Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland doesn't necessarily have to start off with a free travel day. You can choose the free travel days anywhere in the entire period of validity, and they don't have to be consecutive.
The map under the link 'Overview of the network on which the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland is valid' at the Regional-Pass page
shows a map with the exact area of validity. This way, you can see what portion of your inbound trip is discounted or for free.
Just enter your trip in Milan-Interlaken in the Swiss timetable
for an overview of connections. If you click one of the connections, details will be displayed, including information on where to switch trains (this may differ per connection).
