Hi,
We are US citizen, and planning to have “Self Driving 7 Countries Euro Trip” this summer start from Germany (in & out). We would like to pay a visit to “Jungfrau”. But, we've got really confused about those Rail discount card.
Does Jungfrau accepted InterRailPass that from Germany?
And what kind of discount we will get?
As will as go on Schilthorn MountainPeak & Mount Pilatus cable cart too?
The other question is about your “Swiss Half Fare Card”.
Is it one card covered whole family like us (2 adults + one 16year old child)? or, one card per one person only? And how much it will cost us?
Do you have any better suggestion for us?
Thank you very much!
Mrs. Luk

Hello Mrs. Luk, welcome to MySwissAlps,

Are you sure about your InterRail Pass? That pass is for European residents only. US citizens best look into the Eurail Passes. Pass types, prices, discounts, etc. can all be found here.

All about the Swiss Half Fare Card, including a downloadable map with discount information, can be found here. You need a card for everyone over 15 years old. Children up to and including 15 travel along for free.

Since you plan to drive, the Swiss Half Fare Card makes more sense than InterRail or Eurail. The latter two include free traveling but they're also more expensive, so they're economical if you do your long distance transfers by train.

Does this help?
