We are a family of 2 adults and a 15 yr old and will be travelling to Switzerland in June.
I am planning to buy 4 day swiss travel pass as the first full 4 days we will be covering a lot by trains/boats /other local transport.
day 1. Zurich to Chur to Tirano (BEX) and then back to Montreux
day 2. Montreux to Geneva , in and around Montreux
day 3. Monreux to Interlaken ost via Gstaad/ Gruyere and then to Wengen.
day 4. In and around Wengen- (Lauterbrunnen , Gimmelwald, Mürren etc)
5th day plan is to travel to Zurich. Likely to spend time in old town area, Lindenhof Square and lake zurich, then back to hotel which will be near the airport. And 6th day is just an early am trip from hotel to the airport.
My question is two fold.
1. Am I better off buying 8 day Swiss pass- that would be 1136 or buy day passes for the last 2 days.
2. I am lost about day pass and half fare card. Day pass seems to cost around 70CHF per person. What is half fare card, is it to be purchased in addition to day pass? Also will a day pass cover Wengen to Zurich and Zurich central and airport?
STP price I understand is standard. Will the price of day pass change as I get closer to the day of travel? I am looking at early June.
Thank you very much for your help and advice.
