I am getting really confused with all these options here: I am Swiss and have a Half-tax, but my (European) partner does not. We will be spending X-mas vacation in Switzerland (we both live abroad) and I am getting really confused about what travel option to choose for him.
He will travel from the Airport to Lucerne, and then we might be doing some day excursions to mountains close nearby (Titlis, Rigi or so; we can get tickets to get up these mountains for free, however, we first need to get there by public Transport;)).
Then we will go to Wallis a few days (we need a postauto for 40 min), back to Lucerne, and then to the Airport We will decide things rather spontaneously depending on the weather.
If I understood correctly, Interrail does not include Postauto travel? So if we buy an interrail-pass, we would have to pay additionally for Postauto tickets, right? What pass should we choose? I thought Interrail might be the answer, but I am not so sure anymore since we might need Postautos some days… On the other hand, we could pay it in cash… my Partner has a Bahncard 25, but I guess this won’t help much in Switzerland?
Many thanks, best wishes,
