Hello ssraja10 and Welcome to MySwissAlps,
As well as the Swiss Travel Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass) there are many regional passes (www.myswissalps.com/re gionalpasses) which can work depending on where you are based and how much travel you plan. A clearly mapped out itinerary is the basis for deciding which pass (if any) suits. Based on your itinerary you need to do the sums based on the cost of all your planned trips on trains, boats, cable cars etc. You can use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to work out the fares for any trip. When you go to buy a ticket the fare you see on the right hand side of the page will normally be the half-fare price. Double it to get full fare. With A Swiss Travel Pass it is free provided it is shown as free on the Area of Validity map ( PDF downloadable from www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/validity).
You should read “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass), download the spreadsheet and start cranking numbers.
People have been known to go mad working through the interminable options so if that all sounds like too much work then just buy 4 x 4-day Swiss Travel Passes. Even if you don't save any money it is easy, flexible and highly convenient.
