Hi there,

First and foremost, I'm truly blessed to find this informative website. Thanks a lot Arno & Annika for creating this good platform for the newbies like me especially when planning the first trip to Switzerland.

I managed to find a good deal from the link given to purchase the Swiss Travel Pass Combi for 4 Days.

Having said that, my itinerary are as follow:-

Day 1 Travel from Milan to Spiez via Train ( overnight at Spiez )

Day 2 Spiez to Griendelwald ( overnight at Griendelwald )

Day 3 Visit Jungfraujoch ( overnight at Griendelwald )

Day 4 Griendelwald to Lucerne ( overnight at Lucerne )

Day 5 Lucerne to Basel ( overnight at Basel )

Day 6 Basel to London ( via flight )

Appreciate if you could enlighten me the following point:

1) The Combi 4 Days simply means I have 4 Days Free Travel and 1 Day usage of Half Fare Card. Yes/No?

2)Can I use the Swiss Travel Pass for Day 1, Day 2, Day 4 & Day 5 that covers under Free Travel?

3) The Half Fare Card will be used in Day 3 when I'm plan to visit Jungfraujoch by purchasing the return ticket from Grindelwald in order to enjoy the 50% discount.

Thanking you in advance for the advise.

Regards

Annika

Thanks for joining us, Kimball! Glad to hear MySwissAlps has been a useful resource.

Your assumptions about the Swiss Travel Pass Flex are right. You can use your 4 free travel days for day 1, 2, 4 and 5, and use the day with 50% (that is, the "Swiss Half Fare Card"-part of your pass) for your Jungfraujoch trip on day 3. It's also explained at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpassflex/howt ouse.

Just another tip that happens to cross my mind: you can indeed buy a return ticket Grindelwald-Jungfraujoch, but there's an alternative: travel down via Wengen and Lauterbrunnen instead and then head back for Grindelwald via Zweilütschinen. Details can be found at our Jungfraujoch page and in the timetable. It will be a bit more expensive, but it's a gorgeous rond trip allowing you to see more of this stunning region.
