Dear Forum members,

I am in the midst of comparing the costs of the 4 day Eurail pass and the 1mth Swiss Half Pass.

I am planning on visiting Jungfraujoch (weather dependent) in April 2019. As such, I want to weigh the benefits of the aforementioned 2 passes.

Does utilizing the 25% discount for Jungraujoch require one of my 4 days of my Eurail pass? (source: See Day 4 of that itinerary

I read here ( rum/topic/eurail-three-country-select-pass) that it does not (Thanks @Arno)

Could someone please confirm?

So far, the Half Fare is winning the race :) but I am unsure if the extra ticket queue and buying is worth the price difference

Hi xed and welcome to MySwissAlps!

You do not use up a travel day on the Eurail Pass to get a discounted ticket to Jungfraujoch. So it doesn't need to be a travel day.

It is explained on our website here: https://www.myswissalp /validity

The benefits of the Eurail Pass isn't as good as the Swiss Travel Pass (or Swiss Travel Pass Flex) within Switzerland but that is a nice perk the Swiss Travel Pass Flex does not offer).
