after much of the rail passes research based on your earlier comments, I have came across this pass option- Swiss Travel Pass + Half Fare Card. Not sure if this gives better saving with more coverage and flexible as my earlier calculation was done based on the main destination that we are visiting only but not including the nearby places that we may be visiting.Based on my itinerary, we will have 6 full days but there's no 6 days pass option available. Thinking if 3 days pass with half fare card suits our itinerary below.
Day 1) Zurich airport to Lucerne CHF29 (travel on half fare- reaching lucerne at 14:30 thus we think with the remainder time on the day will only allow us to walk around in the old town of lucerne but not far) - appreciate your input if think otherwise.
Day 2) Lucerne - Murren BLM (travel on swiss pass - Day 1) - will be visiting nearby Lauterbrunnen/Stechelberg/Wengen/*will decide when we are there)
Day 3) Murren BLM - Jungfraujoch (travel on half fare since swiss pass giving less discount on this 25% off) - Grindelwald/Kl. Scheidegg (travel on half fare)
Day 4) Murren BLM - Zermatt (travel on swiss pass - Day 2)
Day 5) Zermatt - Matterhorn in the morning /Gornergrat in the afternoon (travel on half fare)
Day 6) Zermatt - Zurich via Glacier Express (travel on swiss pass - Day 3); traveling within zurich city with swiss pass
Day 7) Depart Zurich to Italy early morning (Overnight in zurich airport hotel - airport CHF3.00)
Need some suggestions here if this option works and make more sense! much appreciate!
