The price for the Austria/Swiss pass, 2nd class is $484 for 4 travel days in 2 months. The price for the Swiss Travel Pass is $634 for 4 travel days in 1 month. We will be in Switzerland for 9 days, so the 8 day option doesn't work. We will not be going to Austria. My question is: does the Austria/Swiss Pass also include free local transportation like the Swiss Travel Pass does? Does it include the 50% discount on the mountain gondolas? We are not interested in the other discounts offered with the Swiss Pass, like museum entry.
Also, if you use the pass to ride a short journey, such as Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen, does that count as one of the days? I would assume yes.
