Hi,

I would be going to Switzerland from Paris on 28th Oct with my wife and two kids aged 1.5 and 4 years. My travel plans are as follows:
28.10.2012 paris to interlaken
29.10.2012 Visit Mt jungfrau
30.10.2012 visit saanen and return by Golden Pass Train (Half-day tour) and other half local tour
31.10.2012 Interlaken to Lucerne. Local tour
1.11.2012. Mt. titlis
2.11.2012 Visit Transport museum and also swiss knife factory
3.11.2012. visit mt rigi/pilatus.
4.11.2012 Lucerne to Karlsruhe by Train.

During my stay in switzerland would it be better to buy the swiss card/pass.

I am little confused about the best card to buy. Please advise.

with wishes,
chmrg

Hi chmrg! Since you'll be traveling in October/November, you can make use of the 2 for 1 deal on the 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass. This would definitely work, using free travel days on October 28, 30, November 4 and either October 30 or November 3, depending on your exact plans. The Swiss legs of your inbound and outbound trips, and further trips in Switzerland (with the exception of mountain transportation) will be for free on these days. Traveling on the remaining days will be discounted.

You can also look into the 2 for 1 deal on the 4 day Swiss Saver Pass. You could buy two sets of this offer to cover all 8 days of your stay. This is the easiest solution, as you'll only have to buy additional (discounted) tickets for mountain transportation. It's not necessarily the cheapest solution though, I think. You would have to make calculations to find out. But both options will be cheaper than not using a rail pass and buying regular tickets.
