The following is my itinerary for a May 2015 trip. I need help to determine the most cost-effective means of paying for transportation. Day One - Basel to Lucerne, Day 2 -Lucerne, Day 3- Lucerne to Lauterbrunnen, Day 4- Lauterbrunnen, Day 5 - Lauterbrunnen to Interlaken, Day 6 - Interlaken, Day 7 - Interlaken to Zurich. I would like to go to Jungfraujoch on one day. I would appreciate any advice/recommendations on whether to purchase a Swiss Rail Pass and if so, what kind or purchase point-to-point tickets.

Hi jwcod,

You do need some kind of pass to save on regular tickets. Either an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass or a Swiss Half Fare Card would work for you. Which one is best depends on the exact day trips you intend to do. Please see here for detailed instructions.

I recommend not pick both Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen as a base in the Jungfrau region. They are only 20 minutes apart by train. Changing hotels takes time. You can easily stay in one of these towns only.
