We saved money with the Swiss Pass as we went to too many places!.. also we took advantages of the 50% discounts at some attractions like the cable cable car at mount titlis.

It serves for all the transports in which I wanted to ride (bus, train, tram, metro, cable car, rack railway and boats on lakes)

The travel pass made our trip so much easier. I would recommend it for anyone traveling in Switzerland for a while

This was really good to do our trips by trains around Switzerland.

Easy access, hustle free ,as a traveler safe your time
