We'll be traveling from Zermatt to Lauterbrunnen by train and a few days later from Lauterbrunnen to Montreux. Both of these trips involve a few train changes, and my husband and I will each have one suitcase. If we use the Express Luggage service, each travel day it will cost us CHF 52 (12 each per bag and a flat rate of 30 for the service).
Any side trips we want to do either on the way or once we reach our destinations, we can do without worrying about the luggage. For example, when we arrive the first travel day in Lauterbrunnen we could take the bus to Trümmelbach Falls and then pick up our luggage at the station later. Or on the 2nd travel day when we leave from Lauterbrunnen, we could stop off at a station along the way and then reboard a different train heading to Montreux later.
Am I correct in this? At both Lauterbrunnen and Montreux we have until 18:00 to pick the luggage up? Or does it mean we cannot pick up the luggage before 18:00?
