Swiss Pass vs. Swiss Flexi-Pass

Jump to last reply

Hello - My family of four (2 adults, 2 kids under 14) will be in Switzerland in mid-May for 4 days (3 nights). We're arriving from Milan on day 1 and then making our way to Köln on day 4. Was about to purchase the Swiss Flexi-Pass until I saw this sentence in bold on their website description of the Swiss Flexi-Pass: "On the days between the first and the last activated day, your Swiss Flexi Pass offers a 50% discount on train, (postal) bus and boat rides, as well as on most mountain-top excursions." I'm confused as what this means. How does this impact our first and last days of travel - when we're making our way from Milan to Murren or Murren to Köln? Would it be better then to purchase the Swiss Pass instead of the Swiss Flexi Pass?

Is it possible my coffee hasn't kicked in and I'm not reading this right? Ack.

Thank you in advance, Swiss train experts!
