Hi, I am planning to be in Swiss on 21st dec with below ittenarry:

21 : Zurich Lucerne

22 : luzern - pilatus - luzern -interlaken

23 : interlaken -junfraujoch -interlaken -zurich

24 : Zurich -chur -Tirano by bernina express

previously I planned to have half fare pass, but I read that actually half fare card will not apply for super saver ticket anymore. Then what is best for me for those travel?? Is it only Swiss 3 days pass, as in 21 I only travel for 1 leg to luzern?

Please advise

thank you

Hi Mei27,

As far as I'm aware the Swiss Half Fare Card can still be used to buy Supersaver tickets. Where did you read otherwise?

If you prefer the Swiss Travel Pass, then indeed a 3-day pass would be sufficient, and you can buy a regular ticket on the 21st. Also you can take advantage of the extra discount on Mount Pilatus:

In order to make a choice, these pages are useful too:
