One of the top questions I get asked all the time by travellers visiting Switzerland is this question: WHICH TRAIN PASS SHOULD I GET? Swiss Travel Pass…or the Half-Fare card? 0.0
No thanks to the mega-confusing Swiss transport system and the range of rail passes available out there, I could never provide a clear-cut answer to those of you who asked. Because the truth it, it really depends on your itinerary!
After days of research, I finally decided to pen down my full analysis of the few most popular train passes in Switzerland. This includes the Swiss Travel Pass, the Half-Fare Card, specific regional passes such as the Top of Europe and Bernese Oberland Regional Passes, as well as cost-saving tickets such as the Saver Day Pass and the Super-Saver ticket.
I will conclude with some general travel advice and considerations to help you make the best choice!
