Hi

I am planning my travel in second week of may,16. I am planning to travel below:

Interlaken (2days) + Jungfrau

Lucerne (2days) + Mt.Titlis

Zurich (2days) + Rhine Falls

Which travel pass will be suitable for me to travel above areas including all public transport for 6 days ?

Hi deepesh, welcome to MySwissAlps!

The Swiss Half Fare Card seems to make most sense in your case.

Alternatively you may consider an 8 day Swiss Travel Pass, as that allows even more flexibility and ease of use. Whether or not it's worth its money depends on further details of your travel plans. For example: traveling up to Rigi may make a difference, as that's discounted with the Swiss Half Fare Card but for free with a Swiss Travel Pass.

Here's how to calculate which pass suits your plans best.

Hi Annika

What about local city transport if I buy half rate pass.

Do we have day passes availble for inyerlaken, Lucerne and Zurich ??

Hi Deepesh,

If you click to the "Where it's valid" section of the pages Annika gave you, you can download maps and see what's included. City transport is free with the Swiss Travel Pass. With the Swiss Half Fare Card you need to buy discounted tickets or day passes. There are day passes for Zurich and I think for Lucerne as well. I don't know for Interlaken, but it's a small town where you can get around on foot.

Hi Deepesh,

If you click to the "Price" section of both pass pages Annika gave you, you can see all purchase options, and pick the one that suits you best. Online is more convenient as you can print the pass at home, don't have to wait for a ticket office, and board your first train straight away. You can go to www.swissrailways.com/ en to order the pass. After filling out your address, they will list shipping options. Pick the "Online Ticket" option from the bottom of the list, so they will e-mail you the pass within 2-3 business days.

Enjoy your trips!

Hi Depeesh,

In that case you'd better go to the station of Interlaken West or Ost and buy it from the service desk there.
