Hi Drwmuhaizan and welcome to MySwissAlps!

It will depend on your travel plans each day. You can look at either the Swiss Travel Pass 4 or 8 day consecutive) or the Swiss Travel Pass Flex (4 days non-consecutive).

To know which pass is the best for your specific itinerary you need to plan out all trips you will make (train, bus, boat, cable car) and compare the prices for regular tickets to the rail pass price (and which routes/mountains are free or discounted). Once you have that information you can read our page here on how to choose the best rail pass. There is a spreadsheet there to help with the math. :)

Also, it depends on where you are traveling. If you are only in one region you may find a regional pass a better choice: https://www.myswissalp s.com/regionalpasses

Day 1 and 6 have limited travel so the 4 day Swiss Travel Pass may be the best option (days 2 -5).
You can buy it online here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass/ price

The only way to know for sure is to do the math and use my link from the previous post.
Find ticket prices for all your trips first. Then compare that price against the 8 day pass or the 4 day pass + tickets for day 1 and 6.

You'll get free traveling on your last day in Geneva anyway, if you stay within the city: www.myswissalps.com/ge neva/travel
