after doing much calculating and timetable checking, I am thoroughly confused about the rail passes. I have been advised that the half fare card is usually the best deal, but I am not seeing a big savings.
We are 2 adults traveling with an 18 yr old.
Day 1. Arriving Zurich and taking the train directly to Lucern.
Day 2. Sightseeing around Lucerne
Day 3 train to Wengen with a stop around Bierz See/Interlaken
Day 4 Wengen to Mt first, lauterbrunnen, etc...
Day 5 Jungfraujoch?
Day 6 train to Bern, then on to Zurich
Day 7 day trip to Rhine falls/ Stein am Rhein etc...
Day 8 flight home.
According to my calculations, the major travel days will cost as much full fare as the cost of the 1/2 price tickets and the cost of the half fare pass itself. Am I wrong? I have not been able to figure out the cost of any of the bus/gondola trips we will be taking...but am not really seeing much savings here. (Maybe because I can’t find the other fare costs). Does anyone have any suggestions/comments/help?
