Our trip in July is from Domodossola to Murren , Lauterbrunnen and mountain trains, Murren area to Basel or Zurich airports. We are a family of 6 coming into Switzerland from Domodosolla and exiting via Basel (3 of us) or Zurich (3 of us)--does the Transfer ticket apply? Also, why is the half fare card a better deal for us than the Swiss Pass?

(Thank you Arno for your reply : Why do you travel via Zurich on day 4? The quicker and cheaper route would be to go straight to Basel and board the train to France there. As for passes, I would recommend to choose from the Swiss Half Fare Card and Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi (the latter only applies if you go straight to Basel). These pages about trip to/from Italy and France may also come in handy:myswissalps.com/ traintickets/italymyswissalps.com/ traintickets/francePlease post further questions in a new topic, as your question is not related to the topic here. Thanks!)

Hi Julie,

Your travel plan consists of two longer trips (incoming and outgoing) and two days of short trips. I estimate that it's not enough to make a Swiss Travel Pass economical. Plus, you mentioned the Jungfrau railways: this one is free to Wengen/Grindelwald, but a 25% discount applies beyond those towns, whereas the passes I suggested offer 50% off. You can check all of this by doing the math if you wish.

With a Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi, you will get the incoming and outgoing trips for free, so you don't need to buy tickets. The local trips are 50% discounted. With a Swiss Half Fare Card, you need tickets for all trips, at a 50% discount. The Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi can be used to travel to Basel or Zurich.
