We have purchased a Eurail pass for 2 adults and 2 children covering 3 countries including Switzerland this coming Winter. Whilst in Switzerland we are doing several trips not covered by the Eurail pass; Mt Pilatus, 2 nights in Murren, Schilthorn, and 7 nights in Zermatt. Can we purchase a Swiss junior card with our Eurail pass to save money on the children fares for these trips? For instance it looks like Murren to Schilthorn alone costs CHF40 per child, but if we had a junior card (costing 30 CHF) it would be free.
Hi Mark, welcome to MySwissAlps!
I think the Junior travelcard will work with Eurail too, but I am not 100% sure. The answer provided earlier this year in this thread still applies.
