Hello, we are a family of 5; 3 adults, 16 year old and an 8 year old. We want to take a train from Geneva airport to Interlaken, where we will be staying and return one week later. We haven't decided what we would like to see yet, but we would like to make some trips by train. Please could you let me know the cheapest way of doing this? also, the family deals refer to up to 15, and in other information refers to under 16. Would my 16 year old qualify for the free tickets?

Thanks very much for any advice

Hi Natashamac and welcome to MySwissAlps!

The cheapest way to travel around Switzerland is usually a Swiss rail pass, like the Swiss Travel Pass: https://www.myswissalp You need to make your daily itinerary first and find prices for each trip so you can compare to buying a rail pass in order to see which is cheaper: https://www.myswissalp ses/practical/choosera ilpass

The Swiss Family Card (free and only available if you buy a Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Half Fare Card) covers children 6 to 15 (under 16 and up to 15 is two different ways of saying the same thing). Your 16 year old would not qualify no. Read here for more details: https://www.myswissalp

Hi Natashamac! If you opt for the Swiss Travel Pass, note that there's a cheaper youth version for your 16 year old: https://www.myswissalp price.
