Swiss Transfer Ticket + Half fare Combi, The best bet for me?

I am travelling in December to Switzerland, and wonder which pass makes the most sense for me. Itinerary as follows

dec16 Zurich Airport to Zermatt

dec22 Zermatt to Grindelwald

dec26 Grindelwald to Zurich Airport

I would want to go to the Jungfraujoch rail as well so I feel Swiss Transfer Ticket + Half fare Combi is my best bet (as you get 50% off the Jungfraujoch rail), unless you suggest otherwise. Also the two Airport to destination which is included in the Swiss transfer ticket, does it have to be like the same destination from and to the airport? In which case that would not fit my itinerary.

Thanks very much for your help

Hello Wilson,

Thanks for the question.

It is best to purchase Swiss Travel Pass for your travel.

To purchase Swiss Travel Pass click "Here".

Children below 16 years are free if accompanied by at least one parent having a Swiss Pass. We issue a Swiss family card for children.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free within Switzerland on the STS (Swiss Travel System) network on trains, buses and boats. Also with a Swiss Pass you would get discounts on mountain excursions within Switzerland. These discounts can only be availed locally by showing your Swiss Pass to the ticketing office in Switzerland.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free on intercity trains within Switzerland. You will require compulsory seat reservations on Scenic trains.

The route to Jungfraujoch is as follows:

Interlaken – Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen – Jungfraujoch.

Interlaken – Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen : Free with the Swiss Pass

Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen– Jungfraujoch : Mountain Train/Cable Car ride, has to be booked locally. You will get a discount with the Swiss Travel Pass.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
