Hi,

I am planning to take a trip to Schyninge Platte and, possibly, to Jungfraujoch. I have a Swiss Pass + Family Card for my children. I will have 50% and 25% discount discount on these routes , but what about the children? How much is the fee for them on both of these routes, assuming they travel with me?

Regards
Rail Europe

Hello,

For our family we purchased 1/2 fare cards for two adults (110fr each) and Junior Karte for our two children ( ages 10 &13) (30fr each) and the children travelled for free on all train, buses and even then Jungfrau train. Not sure if this is the same as the Family card but worth asking about at the train station.

Good Luck.

Mandy

Thanks,

I'll try to ask when I'm at he station.

Sounds reasonably - that children travel for free, if accompanied by their parents who have any Pass or discount card

Hi jo1024! With the STS Family Card your children will travel along for free wherever you go, even if a discount instead of free traveling applies for the adults with the Swiss Pass. So there's no need to buy additional Junior Travelcards: just the Family Card will do.

Mandy, thank you for your input! Did you use these Swiss Half Fare Cards? In that case, it wouldn't have been necessary for you to buy Junior Travelcards for your children. The free STS Family Card that can be obtained with STS rail passes, such as the Swiss Half Fare Card, would have been sufficient.
