Hello! My name is William from Canada. My girlfriend and I are exploring Switzerland for 10-14 days, and would appreciate suggestions on the most cost-effective method of travelling - especially regarding the inclusion of Mont Blanc Express and Golden Pass in the Swiss Travel Pass. Our current itinerary is as follows:

1. Chamonix, France (2 nights) - looking into taking the Mont Blanc Express from Chamonix->Martigny (if covered by Swiss Pass), then on to...

2. Montreux, Switzerland (3 nights) - following Golden Pass line

3. Interlaken/Lauterbrunnen (4 nights) - following Golden Pass Line

4. Lucerne (2 nights) - following Golden Pass Line

5. Zurich (2-3 nights) - then off to Austria!

Any must-do's in any of these spots would also be hugely appreciated!

Cheers,

William

Thank you Lucas for the useful links. I've been glued to this forum!

Based on your experience, what do you suppose would be the most cost-effective option here (considering we have to travel out of France first): the STP Flex Youth Card OR the Half Fare Card OR other?

Thanks!

A Swiss Travel Pass Flex isn't usually the most cost-effective method.

Either the regular Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Half Fare Card (https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisshalffarecar d) could work well.

You'll have to plan out each day's trips and find prices first, then you can do the math to figure out what is best for your itinerary. Have a look here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/train/ticketspas ses/practical/choosera ilpass
