I want to thank the forum for your help in planning our trip to Switzerland. After reviewing the board we purchased the Swiss Travel Pass. At first I thought it costs a lot of money, but due to the weather we ended up using it more than we originally thought. I wanted to buy the 1/2 price card and my husband wanted the convenience of just having the pass as it cost a little more than the 1/2 price card. He ended up being right. If you want to see a breakdown on just one trip and my write up about choosing the best Swiss Travel Pass, you can see it on my blog:

Thanks for all your help Switzerland was just as beautiful as everyone says, I just wish we would have had better weather.

Hi anagha and welcome to MySwissAlps!

This thread is for a trip report from Vacationlady. It would be best for you to start your own thread and ask your questions to the community there - we'll be glad to help you!

To help you get started have a look through our page on Swiss rail passes- the Swiss Travel Pass is probably the best option for you.

Post your questions on our rail forum.
