I understand Swiss travel 15 day pass but what if my days in Switzerland is 20 days , what’s the best option for me ? I was thinking May be 30 day 1/2 fare card ? Please help

thanks

Fiona

You have the option of a 15 day Swiss Travel Pass Flex. This would entail using a separate Saver day pass or point point ticket on some of the 'other' 5 days, or have some days when you just walk from your accommodation, or hire a bicycle, etc

Thanks ! So I will plan some days if I hike in town not to use the pass , or if needed to buy a saver day pass in between ! Do you recommend buying a Berner Oberland pass so I can use this pass while I am in the region for 3-4 days to not to use STP ?

thanks

Hi Fionatravel,

Welcome back to the forum.

Combining the Swiss Travel Pass (https://www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpass) with the Regional Pass Bernese Oberland (RPBO) is a great option. If you're planning to purchase the Swiss Travel Pass Flex (https://www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpassflex), do take note that the 35% discount for the RPBO applies only if, on all days of the RPBO, a travel day of the Swiss Travel Pass Flex is being used.

You can find more details about the RPBO and purchase options here: www.myswissalps.com/regionalpassberneseoberland/price

I see! Thanks for the reminder! So I will plan my trip with 15 day STP and the remainder days I use saver day pass and cluster the rest of the days toward the end in Zurich !

cab I buy saver day pass everyday when I need ( outside 15 day pass window)

Yeah, once the detailed itinerary is laid out I will have to do an estimated math to see half card vs STP 15 days plus point to point ( for the remainder 5 days) or flex card !

I have a feeling half card might be not a bad idea as it’s a lot cheaper than 15 day STP so the difference for the pass might be used to pay toward the actual fare (50%)

Hi fionatravel,

You can certainly get a Saver Day Pass for each remaining day of your trip that is not covered by the Swiss Travel Pass. Saver Day Pass is cheaper when you purchase in advance.

In any case, a detailed itinerary will make it easier for you to do the cost comparison for different combinations of railpass.

Regards,

Anna
