Traveling to Interlaken for 8 days with two 76 year olds and family of four including 16 year old twins. Looking for the best way to travel with luggage to the flat in Interlaken. I know trains are efficient, I just worry with all of the luggage and the age of the moms that we will struggle to get on the train and change trains. Don't want to use the luggage service and be without our luggage for a day or two. I do see a shuttle van for less than $100 per person which would seem to be more efficient with the moms and their limited mobility after 20 hours of travel.

Once we are in Interlaken we will take day trips for the week. It appears that the regional pass along with the half fare card would be our best bet? Thoughts? We will go to Jungfrau and Rigi, Lucerne, and Shilthorn. We will also take the boat at Brienz or Thun and Lucerne. Does this seem reasonable?

Hi Alanita67 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

There is also an express same day luggage service just as an FYI.

You'll need to plan out all your trips, find prices and do the math to compare various rail passes to know the best option. We have a web page here to help figure out prices and do the math: https://www.myswissalp s.com/train/ticketspas ses/practical/choosera ilpass.

A Swiss Travel Pass includes the transfer from the airport to Interlaken and back. If you prefer a shuttle then you can take a look here: https://www.getyourgui de.com/zurich-l55/transfer-from-zurich-airport-to-wilderswil-interlaken-t133086/.
