Hi, I'll be staying in Wengen in August, and will be flying to Basel and then train from there. I will be buying a half fare card for me, and getting a family pass so that my 2 sons can travel along for free. I had some confusion with this last time i was there, and accidentally bought tickets for them for the Basel-Interlaken train journey, which was fine i got it refunded, but I just would like to clarify if my understanding is correct:
1) For the normal trains, I only need to buy a ticket for me, for half fare. There is no ticket to buy for the children, they just get on the train.
2) For the mountain railways and cablecars, again do I only need to pay half fare for me, and the children just hop on board for free, no ticket at all required, or do they pay half fare? Same with the Jungfrau train.
I have actually done all this before but remember feeling uncomfortable not having actual tickets for the children on each trip, so I just want to check this is how it works before I go.
