Thanks for your quick reply. I did a quick check for the route from Luzern to Venice at Rail Europe's website and the details are as follows:
13/07/2012 08:18 LUZERN
13/07/2012 11:50 MILANO CENTRALE
Train 153 - Reservation included
13/07/2012 12:05 MILANO CENTRALE
13/07/2012 14:28 VENEZIA MESTRE
Train 37 - Reservation included
Does it include either Domodossala or Chiasso as the connection before I reach Milano Centrale for transfer of train? I couldnt tell from the above information. If it doesnt, am I right to say that the Swiss Pass does not cover the route? But if it does, how much does the train ticket cost from Luzern up to each station of Domodossala or Chiasso? Need this information to calculate the savings.
Assuming the savings for the train from Luzern to Domodossala or Chiasso is not much, Swiss Half fare Card may be cheaper as it offers 50% discount of the Jungrau tickets compared to 25% by a Swiss Pass. Also, as I only intend to buy a 4 days pass (within 1 month), i still have to buy full price tickets for the rest of the days. Therefore, I think Swiss Half fare card might still be a better choice.
Looking forward to your advice. Many Thanks!!
