Since I will be in Switzerland for 17 travel days this summer, I will be outside the 15 day swiss travel pass window (except if there is another promotion like last year where it added 2 extra days for free). Since I was going to spend 7 days in the luzern and engelberg areas I thought some combination of a travel pass flex and Tell pass could work. My question is, even if I did get all 17 days covered on a swiss travel pass, it seems advantageous to have the Tell pass because of a greater discount (free, mostly) on the mountain cables around Titlis especially rather than just 50% off with the STP. And I will be using these lifts several days. Any ideas?

Yes, that could work well for you. The Tell Pass does give better discounts to the Luzern area.

There is a 5 day Tell Pass that you could combine with the Swiss Travel Pass Flex. It is popular for some itineraries to combine passes like that, also the Tell Pass with a Swiss Half Fare Card or a different regional pass altogether, depending on what makes sense with your itinerary.

On our page: How to choose the best rail pass, the spreadsheet can help you do the math with the different calculations.

Thanks so much Lucas, but I do not have Excel so I cannot see the speradsheet, as last year.

Hi Debra,

It's an Excel-sheet but you don't necessarily need Microsoft Excel to open and edit the sheet. It can even be done on Apple devices, for example: itunes.apple.com/us/ap p/microsoft-excel/id586683407?mt=8. In any case, the Excel sheet is helpful and saves time, but you can follow the same methodology on a sheet of paper if you prefer.

When clicking on the link for the spreadsheet, a pop up comes up asking you to buy microsoft office. Can't see the spreadsheet.

Sorry Debra, I'm not an iOS expert. Perhaps check if they also offer Quickoffice? I believe that is a free version of Microsoft Office including Excel. But you can use a paper notepad as well. It will take a bit more time but not much. All the steps are the same.
