Hi Suriaia73,

Yes, you would need to get a Tell Pass for each of your kids at a fixed price of CHF30. For more details here: www.myswissalps.com/tellpass/price

Does the Tell Pass work with your itinerary?

You children will travel free with a Swiss Family Card (www.myswissalps.com/swissfamilycard) which is available for free when acquired in conjunction with a Swiss Travel Pass (www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpass) or Swiss Half Fare Card (www.myswissalps.com/swisshalffarecard).

Thank you for the suggestion. I guess Tell Pass is the best option since I’ll be driving most of the time. This is to cover my trip to Titlis and lake cruises. Thank you

OK. Your earlier threads talked about the Bernina Express. You have read www.myswissalps.com/carversustrain I guess.

Hello Suriaia73,

Thanks for your question!

Have you had a chance to read the various links about driving in Switzerland? In addition to rockoyster's link about car versus train, I will attach some addition links about driving in Switzerland so you are prepared:

As a tip, keep some plastic bags in the car, in case any of your children get car sick while driving in Switzerland.

If you plan on driving most of the time while you are in Switzerland, it's a good idea to consider the Swiss Half Fare Card, because this is very suitable for drivers who don't travel by train, but do take day trips by cable car, boat, etc. You get a 50% discount on tickets for trains, buses, boats, city transport and mountain transport and children travel along for free.

I have attached details of Tell-Winter and Tell-Summer for your reference:

Good luck!

Best regards,

Suzanne
