Swiss Travel Pass & Half Fare Card

New Author

Hi, I have research very long but I dont seem to get the answer. I am travelling to Swizeterland in October for holiday.


1. What is the different between GA and Swiss Pass? I am a tourist so I only can buy Swiss Pass right?

2. With the Swiss Pass and Half Fare Card - do both apply for train that are travelling from Interlaken to Milan?

3. SBB site - booking from Interlaken to Milan, there is GA 2 inclu 1/2/3 year option discount, is this the same as Swiss Pass Travel? 


4. Here is my schedue below, which option is my best saving travel card to buy? 

- Geneve Airport to city 

- Geneva city to Interlaken Ost

- Interlaken to Ginderwald

- Interlaken to Jungfrau


Thanks so much!

So once i purchased the Swiss Travel Pass via this website

Then how will the travel pass delivered to me?


Also, may i ask how does this Swiss Travel Pass works if i were to buy the 3 consecutive days?


Go by 24 hours x 3 days? Meaning i can activate in the afternoon on 1st day, then ends on the afternoon on the 4th day?
