Hi Navita and welcome to MySwissAlps!

If you are spending all 5 days in and around Interlaken you may want to consider the Regional Pass - Bernese Oberland. It will only cover part of your trip to/from Zurich (validity starts in Luzern) but otherwise it should cover trips quite well from then on. It is available for 4 or 6, 8 or 10 days. If your rail pass isn't valid for your whole stay then you can buy point to point tickets for the outstanding day.

The only way to know what pass is best for you is to plan out all your trips here and do the math to compare tickets and passes - our webpage here will help you: https://www.myswissalp ses/practical/choosera ilpass

PS I don't know what CNFM means....

Hi Navita,

Note that SwissPass is a product for Swiss residents only. The Swiss Travel Pass is for tourists and is available for 3, 4, 8 or 15 days: isstravelpass. Of course you can buy a 4-day pass and just buy point to point tickets on either the first or last day, whichever works out cheaper.
