My wife and I will be visiting Switzerland in May for 2 weeks, I’m working out our costs for our trip.
We will be visiting Jungfrau, as well as other destinations, ie Zermatt, Locarno, Zurich and Wengen for a while.
I’m trying to work out the best benefits of the Half Fare Card (CHF 120) v Swiss Pass first class (CHF 675).
As an example the trip to Jungfrau from Wengen is starts at CHF 162, with a Half Fare Card it’s CHF 81 and with a Swiss Pass it’s CHF 121.60
Is this right? I’m wondering why a Half Fare card gives you a bigger discount than the Swiss Pass, maybe it’s due to the Half Care Card holders needing to purchase a half fare on the train from their initial starting point.
My wife and I are not planning on visiting many museums which gives the Swiss Pass holders a benefit.
My spreadsheet for transport costs is is letting me know a half fare card would be better value for us.
Have I understood the Jungfrau costs correctly?
Many thanks for your help.
