Hello macpycandy. In that case, there's hardly any price difference between a 3 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
(which would suit your plans better than a 4 or 5 day Flexi Pass) and a Swiss Half Fare Card
. This is based on the total price for your itinerary, including the purchase price of the passes, discounts, and so on.
If I were you, I'd opt for the 3 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass and use free travel days on day 1, day 2 and day 5. The advantage over a Swiss Half Fare Card is that you can travel for free wherever you want on those days, so you're more flexible with this pass. Moreover, public transport in cities such as Geneva, Lausanne, Montreux and Lausanne is for free on these free travel days too, whereas the Swiss Half Fare Card only offers discounts for urban trips.
I hope this helps you decide.
