Hi Sue, thanks for joining us! Great that you get to visit Switzerland with your son.
There are several pass options indeed. The Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi you mentioned could be used for Basel-Wengen and Meiringen-Basel, but it isn't quite worth its money in your case. Also, you'll have to buy discounted tickets for each trip made from Wengen. Passes that offer free traveling are generally more convenient. So depending on the area you'd like to cover, I'd recommend either:
- the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland, with additional tickets Basel-Bern and Bern-Basel. This is suitable if you wish to cover larger area;
- the Jungfrau Travel Pass, with additional tickets Basel-Interlaken and Interlaken-Basel. This would work if you just want to focus on the Jungfrau region. It has some limitations though. The Schilthorn, for example, isn't included.
The pages I linked to provide all details. They include validity overviews and purchase options. If you want to make sure which pass is most economical, there's no other way than making a detailed list of plans and make calculations as explained here.
