We , an ageing couple from India, planned to visit Switzerland for 5 days, from 14th to 19th October '16.
We are confused as to whether we should buy Swiss Travel Pass or a Half Fare card.
Our tour plan is like this:
14th: We will reach Geneva from Kolkata,India, at around 2pm. & will go to Lausanne to visit one of our friend staying there.
15th: Take train to Grindelwald, & stay.
16th: Visit Jungfrau & back to Grindel wald.
17th: Train to Zermatt, stay.
18th: Take Glacier Express from Zermatt to Chur.
19th: Board Bernina Express from Chur to Tirano, Italy.
This is our itinerary. Any one kind enough to advice us what to choose?
1. Actually from the Train Route Map, I could not ascertain the routes which are not covered by Swiss Travel Pass.
2. I came to know that a pass holder gets 25% discount in Jungfrau region, which means I have to pay 75% of this ticket over & above my Swiss Travel Pass & all other train rides are FREE? Off course I know that I will have to pay the reservation charges for the panoramic trains.
