Hi, I am planning for a 10-day trip to Switzerland in early October, and is deciding which whether to get the Swiss Flexi Pass (3 days in a month) or the Swiss Half Fare Card. Our itinerary is as follows:
Day 1 - Geneva
Day 2 - Geneva - Lausanne
Day 3 - Lausanne - Montreux - Lausanne
Day 4 - Lausanne - Bern
Day 5 - Bern - Interlaken - Grindelwald - Kleine Scheidegg - Lauterbrunnen - Interlaken
Day 6 - Interlaken - Engelberg - Titlis - Engelberg - Interlaken
Day 7 - Interlaken - Zurich
Day 8 - Zurich - Winterthur - Zurich
Day 9 - Zurich - Basel
Day 10 - Basel
Apart from the entire itinerary, I would particularly like to ask, how much discount is the Half Fare Card offering for the Jungfraujoch section? (Kleine Scheidegg-Jungfraujoch-KS, or Grindelwald-KS-JFJ-KS-Lauterbrunnen as a whole). As I heard from somewhere that the discount is 50% while somewhere else indicates it is 25%.
As for the Flexi Pass, I am aware that the discount for KS-JFJ-KS is 25% only, but I am not sure about the connections in between Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen with KS, or Wengen-KS (seems to be 25% as well but just wish to make sure). Besides, we are getting the 3-day pass instead of longer ones because it's now having a 30% discount in the pass till Nov 2011 which is quite a nice deal.
Thank you so much for the advice, and any suggestions are welcome!
