Indeed, I'm only half way through the math. Head is spinning.
I am going from Basel to Montreux for 5 days (some day trips there), then going to Murren for 5 nights. Then, return to Basel.
I believe, based on current plans for hikes and trips, that my best bet is half fare card plus Bernese Oberland. However, it might be Half fare card plus Junfrau region. I have determined that it is NOT the Swiss Rail pass based on the rules of thumb.
Indeed, it is dizzying - as the BO card gives you half off to Montreux (once you go beyond BO border). Montreux lodging includes a local travel card. If you get the half fare card, the BO card is also discounted. etc etc.
