Full Fere/Half Fare Card or Swiss Pass? Which is most suitable?

New Member

I will be travelling to Switzerland and Milan in May 2020. My rail travel are as follows:

1. Zurich Flughafen - Zurich HB

2. Zurich HB - Luzern

3. Luzern - Interlaken OST

4. Interlaken OST - Jungfraujoch

5. Interlaken OST - Zermatt

6. Zermatt - Matterhorn

7. Zermatt - Milano Centrale

My question is - which option (full fare/half fare/swiss pass) is the best and economical for these rail travel?

Thank you



Hello @dean786 

Depending on the trips you intend to do by train, the offer Swiss Travel System is better than an ordinary/standard ticket:

Price information within Switzerland is available in the Ticket Shop.
Please click on:

You will receive a summary of all price categories. This makes it easy to compare the fares with the offers of our Swiss Travel System.

Please also note the Supersaver Tickets  and Saver Day Pass.

And please note that SwissTravel passes are not valid for all mountain railways.
