This is my itinerary for a 7 day trip to Switzerland with the point-to-point train trips I will need.

1 Zurich Lucerne
2 Lucerne Mt. Pilatus
3 Lucerne Interlaken
4 Interlaken Lauterbrunnen
4 Lauterbrunnen Murren (RT)
4 Murren Schilthorn (RT)
5 Lauterbrunnen Wengen (RT)
5 Wengen Jungfraujoch (RT)
6 Lauterbrunnen Zermatt
6 Zermatt Matterhorn (RT)
7 Zermatt Bern

Bern Munich (already booked)

What would be my best option from the following 3?

a) Swiss Pass starting from Zurich to Lucerne and Zermatt to Bern with 50% everywhere in between
b) Half Fare card everywhere
c) 4 day consecutive saver pass (2 of us) for days 4-7 and full price otherwise.

Hi svrider,

You can calculate exactly if you want, but from my experience I would say that option b (Swiss Half Fare Card) is the cheapest. It seems like you mean a Swiss Flexi Pass with option a, buit there isn't a 2-day version available, and also Zurich - Lucerne is relative short to use a free travel day for. Option c would be expensive as days 4-7 start with 2 days of short trips and also the Swiss Saver Pass gets you less discount on the Jungfraujoch than the Swiss Half Fare Card.

Does this help?
