Hi - traveling back to Switzerland after 40 years and remember having a Swiss Rail Pass for our travels then. Landing in Zurich heading to Lucerne that day; Lucerne to Grindelwald; Grindelwald to Zermatt; Zermatt to Zurich. That's four absolute travel days on the train. Maybe side trip out of Lucerne one day, Grindelwald two days and Zermatt (maybe) one day. Should I just purchase the Swiss Pass and be done with buying tickets, half-fare, etc. or look into the Swiss half fare ticket and purchase tickets when needed? We'd like to travel first class. Thanks.

Hi mary1951, and welcome to MySwissAlps,

Well, a Swiss Saver Pass would be the most convenient option as it includes every train, boat and bus you may want to use for a fixed price, with the exception of mountain top excursions (these are discounted). It may also be the cheapest option, but from your information, a 4-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass may work out better. It includes the transfers for free and the side trips on the other days would be discounted. If you want to be sure, you need to know the total number of days you'll be staying in Switzerland and all trips you'll be making. Then you can calculate exactly which pass would be cheapest.

I hope this helps!
