Swiss rail passes

Jump to last reply

There seems to be no end to the variety of Swiss rail passes. I am wondering if there's an easy way to work out the best one to get. Three adults (1 is 75 but it doesn't seem to give any age discounts) are going (and travelling together) on May15. We plan to get train (from Paris) to Basel, then to Interlaken, then a bus to a campsite. We have nowhere particular to travel to, except to go to Interlaken itself on Sunday. We are considering doing some scenic train journeys, maybe including cable car &/or funicular railway trip. After 5 nights in the mobile home, we have to get to Chur for the Bernina Express. I have paid and reserved our seats but not yet bought any tickets. The only way to get to Chur (from near Interlaken) for the 08:37 Bernina Express to Tirano seems to be to hire a car, this is do-able as some hirers allow one-way hire.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, especially: is there a way to work out if, for example, we should use the Swiss pass, or maybe an interrail, how do they compare? The flexi-interrail seems to be cheaper than the flexi Swiss pass, but maybe it offers fewer benefits. There's a Swiss transfer ticket, but maybe you need to enter & exit the country at the same place for that one. I'm really not sure. Then there are various half-fare cards & combinations. It's a minefield!

Thanks.
