Hello fishermanrob. No, a 1 year Half Fare Card Travelcard isn't a good choice for these two journeys made within 7 to 10 days (unless of course you plan to return to Switzerland within a year and make further trips then). If all you need for your upcoming stay in Interlaken is the trip Zurich-Interlaken-Zurich, you're best off buying regular train tickets. If you want to make some other trips during your stay as well, you can best consider the monthly Swiss Half Fare Card.

Hi fishermanrob. In that case you can best pick one of the passes I advised about in your previous topic. The Half Fare Travelcard combined with the credit card seems to be meant for Swiss residents only (allowing them to use this credit card when traveling abroad). But you can check with the SBB of course if it's also available to non-Swiss residents.
