Hello! I will be traveling to France and Switzerland in late May - early June. I am trying to decide between a France-Switzerland Eurail, the Swiss Card, or the Half Fare Card. At this point, I am leaning towards the Swiss card (have tried to add up the prices of the individual legs of the journey), but have a few questions. I will be traveling from Annecy, France to Wengen. It seems there are three legs - Annecy to Geneva, Geneva to Bern, Bern to Interlaken (and then on to Lauterbrunnen and Wengen). For the free round trip, would that begin in Geneva and take me all the way to Wengen? So I would only have to pay for Annecy to Geneva? I will be spending three days in Wengen and then traveling back by train from Interlaken to Geneva (exit point). How do you activate your free round trips? Do you buy your tickets all at once when you enter the country? Are reservations necessary at this time of year?
For travel between Wengen and Murren (or elsewhere in the BO), do you get 50% off on all cable cars/buses in the the BO?
Also, does the Swiss card provide 50% discount off both the Jungfraujoch and the Schilthorn transportation?
Thank you in advance for your help!
