Is it ever a good thing to have two type of Swiss passes? I just bought a 6 day Bernese Oberland regional pass ( 2 for the price of 1) for myself and daughter. We will be hiking around the region using trains, faniculars, and gondolas for the six days were are there. But we will also be taking trains from Milan to Zermatt, from the Oberland area to Lucerne, and from Lucerne to Zurich. I'm starting to have buyers remorse, even though it seems like such a good deal. Should I also buy a 3 day Swiss Saver flexi pass for us?. Or some other pass?

Hi linny,

It can make sense to have two passes in some cases, but usually it is not economical. I wouldn't do it in your case either. If you take a look at the area of validity of the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland, you'll see that you get discounts when traveling to Lucerne and Zermatt. To minimize costs, you may want to use the free travel days for those longer trips, depending on your other plans.

If you would have choosen to buy two passes, it would actually have been better if you had made that decision before, as the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland is cheaper for holders of a Swiss (Flexi) Pass/Swiss Card, even on top of the 2-for-1 discount.

Anyway, I think the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland gets you a long way if you check out the map and use your free travel days right.

Have fun!
