I want to purchase a 15 day Combi Flex pass in Interlaken. Must I pay in cash or do they accept credit cards?

Hi connestee712,

They'll accept cash and credit cards, no problem. Are you aware of the price difference of the various points of sale? Buying in Switzerland is pretty expensive; there are better options online as you can see here. In your case you would save a lot by buying through www.raileurope-world.com/pass/swiss-travel-pass-half-fare-card.

I would prefer purchasing from Raileurope as I have done in the past, but I read somewhere that the Combi flex pass if purchased from Raileurope would not entitle free admission to museums. Only if purchased from SBB with the pass allow free museum admissions. Have I been misled?

Hi connestee712,

That's not true. All points of sale offer the exact same passes. Do you recall where you read that?

By the way, the Rail Europe page I linked to specifically mentions the included museums.
