Family Travel with different Passes / Cards

New Member

Hi, I really hope someone can help me!

I am travelling with my 14 year old son (and 2 adult children aged 19 and 23) using Interrail passes for most routes. We want to spend 3 days in the Bernese Oberland (including Jungfraujoch, which I know has separate pricing) including Lauterbrunnen, Wengen, Murren and Grindelwald which are not covered by the Interrail pass.

Do I need an adult Swiss Travel Pass to apply for a Swiss Family Card, or would a Bernese Oberland regional pass or Half Price (adult) Travel pass also allow me to apply for a Family Card?

How much is a Half Price Travelcard for a child? 

Am I correct in thinking that all the above routes (except for Jungfraujoch from Kleine Scheideg) are covered by the Swiss Travel Pass for free or the Half Price card for half price for all?

I am sorry to ask such a lot of questions but hope someone can help me!

Thank you, Clare

Dear @Clare 

Thank you for your queries.

The Family card is available with both ticket (Swiss Travel Pass and Bernese Oberland Pass).

Children under 16 do not need any Half Fare Card, for the too young adults (19 -23) the price is the same as for adults: 120.- for a month

Here you can find all the routes included in the Swiss Travel Pass:

I hope I could answer your queries and wish you a good day.
