    I don’t know which would be best value for us(2 adults).

    We’ll travel like this:

    14 May-Tirano to Chur on Bernina Express
    15 May-Chur to Brig on Glacier Express and Brig to Interlaken West on intercity trains
    16 May-may go up Jungfrau if weather is good, otherwise might do boat trip or take train to Bern or Lucerne for day trip
    17 May-as above
    18 May-Golden Pass Panorama to Montreux
    19 May- visit Chillon Castle (by boat?)
    20 May-intercity train to Geneva then TGV to Nimes (ticket already bought).

    It seems to me that the half- fare cards might be better than the 3 day flexi-passes?

    Not knowing what we’re doing on 16 and 17 May makes it more confusing, but we’ll be doing something – not sitting in our hotel room.

    Hi Judy52,

    This has already been discussed here and here, right? Is there anything specific we can help you with? Flexi passes are more convenient as you don’t have to purchase tickets all the time. If it’s the best price you’re looking for, you can calculate that as explained here.
