Hello Jen, and welcome! Yes, the entire leg Geneva-Wengen would count as your free inbound trip (and the trip back would be your free outbound trip). So you'd only have to pay for the leg Annecy-Geneva. It may depend on the reseller how the pass should be activated. You can either write down the date yourself or have it activated by a railway employee at the Geneva railway station, and for the trip back at the railway station of Wengen. You'll receive instructions along with your pass when ordering
You don't have to purchase all your tickets at once when entering the country. Tickets for individual trips can just be bought at the railway station or valley station right before boarding. You'll receive a 50% discounted ticket when showing your Swiss Card
. Ticketing machines with clear instructions in English, allowing you to buy 50% discounted tickets, are often available as well.
The Swiss Card offers 50% discount on most transportation in the Bernese Oberland. The Schilthorn and the Jungfraujoch are included. For the Jungfraujoch, a 25% discount applies. The map we link to at the Swiss Card page
(under the header 'Swiss Card features') provides an excact overview of the Swiss Card's validity.
