Hi AnnaMontana, thanks for joining MySwissAlps!

It can be challenging to find the right pass for sure. Which option is best, depends on many factors. So could you give us some more input? For example: how long will this trip last in total? Will you spend additional days in Geneva, Engelberg, Lauterbrunnen and/or Annecy, and if so, do you plan to make any side trips? In which season will you be traveling?

Meanwhile, this step-by-step guide to choose the right rail pass can get you started: https://www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses/practical/chooserailpass.

HI AnnaMontana,

Based on your plans, perhaps a Swiss Half Fare Card might work for you. This will save you from paying expensive full-fare tickets for mountain transportations such as gondola an cable cars. You also pay half price for public transportation such as trains, trams, buses and boats. In addition, you can also take advantage of cheaper Supersaver and Saver Day Pass when you purchase your tickets early.

Options to buy this pass online are available here: www.myswissalps.com/swisshalffarecard/price

For tickets to Annecy (France), you can find more info here: www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/france

Would this work you?

Regards,

Anna
