Hi Arno,

I am traveling from 14th to 24th September, my route is going from Zurich to Geneva, I arrive in Zurich (will be there 2 days), Luzern (stoping 3 days, I have both friends in Zurich and Luzern), Interlaken (2 day), Bern (1day), Lausanne (1day) and Geneva (1day).

1. I am wondering which is the most cost effective option if a part from the trains I will take one boat and ona cable car. Should I buy 8 days Swiss Travel Pass (around 333EUR) or the 6 days Interrail Swiss Pass (199EUR)?

2. I have also read that in Geneva the public trasport and transport to the airport is for free? Is that right? Any other city that is aso free for tourists?

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Yaiza,

Thanks for joining us!

1. The trains connecting these towns are free with both passes. So it will depend on which boat and cable car you will be using. And whether you are sure you won't do more of such trips, as it might be hard to resist if the weather is fine :-) Please compare the coverage maps of both passes, and do the math if you want:

If price is important I'd suggest to buy the Interrail pass and prevent doing trips not covered by it. Please see myswissalps.com/ interrailswitzerland pass/price.

2. Public transport within cities is fully included in the Swiss Travel Pass, but not in the Interrail pass. Indeed cities like Geneva, Bern and Lausanne offer free transport to hotel guests. Please see the hotel and transport sections of our town pages.
