Hi Arno, thank you for your quick reply. I have calculated the approximate cost below (all in CHF), can you please confirm if I understand these 2 cards correctly?
Oct 7: Zurich airport - Zurich 6.6 / Zurich transport 1 day pass 4.2 / Zurich to Lucerne 31
Oct 8: Lucerne transport 1 day pass 6.4 / Mt. Rigi 105
Oct 9: Lucerne transport 1 day pass 6.4 / Mt. Titlis 89
Oct 10: Lucerne to Interlaken 60.5 / Harder Kulm 28 / Lake Brienz cruise (still may be)
Oct 11: Jungfrou 197.60
Oct 12: Interlaken - Zurich airport 119.90
A total of CHF 659.60 per person
SWISS Saver PASS: We have to get the 8 days options (4 will be too short), it's CHF 353 / person (after the 10% discount). If I'm understanding it correctly, everything is included except to Jungfrou, which will only give us 25% discount. So total cost will be CHF 501.90 / person
SWISS 1/2 FARE CARD: CHF 120 / person, and everything is 50% off, so total cost will be CHF 447.3/person.
We first wanted to take train from Paris to Zurich, but read there's no VAT tax refund services in Paris train station and we can't do it in Zurich since Swiss isn't an EU member. That's why we change our plan to fly instead. Do you have any info regarding this?
