We are planning a trip for Christmas to Swiss.

I've reserved 2 seats from Tirano to Chur by Bernina Express (RhB) and from Chur we'll go for a daily trip to St. Moritz.

After 5 days, we' ll return to Tirano from Chur with Bernina Express.

Do you think that I should by 2 Half fare cards or just point to point tickets?

Thank you in advance

Hello Akis,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! Swiss Half Fare Cards would make sense, assuming that the day trip to St. Moritz is not the only activity you will do from Chur. Otherwise you would almost break even. You can calculate it yourself if you follow the instructions here: www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass.

More information about the Bernina Express, Swiss Half Fare Card and St. Moritz can be found through the below links:

By the way, you will almost pass St. Moritz on the Bernina Express (twice), so you may want to change your plans to save time on backtracking (see the map on our Bernina Express page). Alternatively you can keep your plans as they are but take the route via Landquart and Klosters to St. Moritz. That prevents you from seeing the same route four times.
