Hello,

Iam planning to visit Switzerland with below itinerary :

8th Dec : Coming to Lucerne from Paris, will be arrive around 6PM. I think just walking around Lucerne at night

9th Dec : Planning to visit Mt. Titlis and Lake Lucerne

10th Dec : Continue travel to Italy

Is it better if I have Saver Day Pass ?

Is Saver Day Pass will cover the train to Engelberg and return to Lucerne ?

Thanks :)

Hello Oppeew and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

Nice to hear you're coming for a short stay to Switzerland, or rather Lucerne:
- www.myswissalps.com/lu cerne

For input on the Saver Day Pass, please check below link, especially the "Where it's valid" section. You will see that the train Lucerne - Engelberg is entirely covered by that pass.
- www.myswissalps.com/sa verdaypass

I assume you already hold the tickets for your arrival and departure, from and to France and Italy? If not, see:
- www.myswissalps.com/tr aintickets/france
- www.myswissalps.com/tr aintickets/italy

For details about Mount Titlis see below link and the second and third one will support your day-trip plans train-wise.
- www.myswissalps.com/ti tlis
- www.myswissalps.com/ti metable
- www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/practical/howtotra vel

You can use the timetable link to find out about regular train tickets for that day, by searching your connection, proceeding in the purchase process and doubling the price you get there (it's by default a reduced price for half-fare card holders).

Best,
Steph

A Saver Day Pass will be more expensive the a return ticket from Luzern to Engelberg and doesn’t help with Titlis at all. One might help from Luzern to Chiasso on your way to Milan. But at this late stage you have most likely missed the best pricing. Sorry.

I am a big fan of the SBB Mobile app (bit.ly/2ICIUHi) for checking train, bus, boat and cable way timetables, finding fares* and buying tickets on-line if required. In the unlikely event you don’t have a device capable of running the app then you can use the timetable on the SBB website (bit.ly/2HH1U7B). If you are not familiar with using the timetable it will pay to first read the instructions at www.myswissalps.com/ti metable.

* The SBB website shows half-fare prices by default, the mobile app allows you to nominate whether to show full or half-fares (by editing the passenger details in settings) and is also smart enough to offer you the Saver Day Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sa verdaypass) if that offers the best fare. The app can also display a platform map (at least at the larger stations) to help you make connections. You can also easily filter modes of transport (eg bus or ship).
