We are traveling to Zurich , lucerne, Mt Titlis, Interlaken and Jungfraujoch.

Please advice us for the right pass , either , swiss travel pass or swiss travel pass flex for better discounts for Mt Titlis and Junfraujoch.

Thank you in advance for all the advice

Hi Fouwaz, welcome to MySwissAlps!

I recommend to compare the Swiss Travel Pass and Swiss Half Fare Card. Things depend on how long you will be in Switzerland, if you expect to do any other trips, whether you will visit museums and whether you like to spontaneously travel without buying tickets whenever possible. The Swiss Travel Pass Flex only makes sense if you will have multiple days without any day trips or traveling at all.

Please see these pages for details and to help you choose:

Thank you for your prompt response.

I am coming for only 4 days, so I have fixed plan.

If I take 4 days. travel pass. Can I get the same discount for mt titles and jungfraujoch?

Due to time shortage I do not have plans to visit museum.

My priority is for visiting lucerne, Mt. Titles, interlaken and jungfraujoch.

Thanks once again

Regards

Fouwaz

Hi Fouwaz,

Yes, you will get discounts on those mountains: 50% off of Mount Titlis, and the first leg of the Jungfraujoch ride is free and there's 25% off of the second leg. Details are here: myswissalps.com/swisst ravelpass/validity.
