I think this is an easy one but appreciate any and all advice. We will be in Switzerland for two weeks in June 2022. Our travel days are in stone: first one will be a 4 hour train/bus mix, five days later our second travel day is 2 hour bus/train, final third route is 2 hour train ride back to Zurich Airport. Otherwise we will be hiking and using only local buses and funiculars etc. I believe that our most economical tickets will be either Supersaver or Day Saver and I’ll simply have to check SBB 60 days to departure to see what is best. Is that correct? Thank you!

Hi DM9800,

Welcome to MySwissAlps.

It's difficult to offer any tickets and railpass recommendations as you did not provide details about your itinerary. But to answer your questions: yes the Saver Day Pass is probably the best option if you are travelling over a long distance for only 1 or 2 days. More details about the Saver Day Pass here: www.myswissalps.com/saverdaypass (please click on the price tab for a list online resellers)

For journeys involving shorter distance, regular point-to-point tickets may be cheaper than a Saver Day Pass. But it's possible to find Supersaver deals if you book your tickets in advance. Please be aware however that Supersaver tickets are not flexible and non-refundable. For more details, see here: www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/switzerland

For longer trips, a multi-day railpass would be more practical. Have a look at your options here: www.myswissalps.com/swissrailpasses

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Anna

Hi DM9800,

The costs of local funiculars and cable cars can really add up if you're hiking for two weeks. A Swiss Half Fare Card (for example) could cut those costs in half: www.myswissalps.com/swisshalffarecard. It will also give you extra discounts on the Saver Day Pass and Supersaver tickets.

Be sure to look into Anna's links and also www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses/practical/chooserailpass.

Hi DM9800! Since you'll be also be using local public transportation and mountain lifts, I too recommend to calculate whether the Swiss Half Fare Card is a good option for you. The links provided by Anna and Arno will sure be helpful. Let us know in case you have further questions :-).
