Hi Bala,

I think your itinerary is great - not too much planned on each day - very manageable.
I think with your plans you may be better off with the Swiss Travel Pass rather than the Swiss Half Fare Card.

With the Swiss Travel Pass you don't have to continually buy train tickets for each trip - just hop on any train and bus you like whenever you like (also includes city transit).

The only extras you must buy are reservations on the Glacier Express and Bernina Express (as noted on your previous post) and the train ticket from Grindelwald or Wengen to Jungfraujoch (25% discount with Swiss Travel Pass). So this pass offers a lot of flexibility for you in case of last minute changes.
