Excellent trip to Switzerland. At first I was hesitant to buy the pass through this website since I have never use it before and did not know what to do in case any issue with the tickets. I tried to purchase the Jaunfrau travel pass through the Jaunfrau website but it was not possible even I tried with several credit cards, and after several bank calls , it was confirmed that the vendor was declining the purchase, Maybe because it was an international credit card . Then, I decided to purchase in this website and it was the same as purchasing in jaunfrau official website. Glad to have this option In a trusted website

We bought the pass for 4 days and it was totally worth it.Just one update, on Getyourguide it says you have to exchange it for the travel pass from the train station in Interlaken but that has been changed and the QR code which getyourguide send over email works everywhere so no need to exchange it for a travel pass (We got it confirmed first from the tourist center)

We bought a six day pass and used it substantially on 5 of the 6 days. It saved time and trouble on every trip, encouraged us to take the best option rather than the cheapest option each time, and helped us extend our horizons...... and in the end, it probably saved us a few Swiss francs as well!

One of the best way to travel across multiple destinations within Swiss.

Highly recommend if your planning on going all over jungfrau region
