My husband and I are staying in Lucerne for 3 nights from 30th August, then going to Chur for 1 night and then catching the Bernina Express on 3rd September this year. In Lucerne we will basically be sightseeing around the immediate area, e.g. trips to Mt Pilatus, maybe Mt Rigi too and boat trips on the lake to see other towns. I have done a great deal of research on the most suitable Pass for us to use and I think the Half Fare Card would be the best choice. Does this seem correct? If so, my main query regards purchasing our Bernina Express tickets.
The Half Fare Card can only be purchased one month in advance (for us that would be no earlier than 30th July). We have already purchased our seat reservations. I can purchase our tickets on the 5th July. So when I book our tickets can I buy them at half price even though I can't buy the Half Fare Card until the end of July? That is, can I book the tickets before the Half Fare Card?
Thank you for any advice you can give us.
