Sorry to post another thread on what looks like quite a frequent topic, but even reading previous posts I still feel somewhat confused. I have been to Europe several times and have never bought a pass, just single tickets, but it seems like in Switzerland there are more options and I don't understand them. We are two ladies, coming in from Paris. We will be staying for 3 nights in Lausanne and 3 Nights in Murren. We hope to do day trips around the lake in Geneva and hiking/day trips in Murren. When we leave we will be going back in to France from Murren. Generally I buy the major train tickets in advance, and not necessarily the day trip ones to allow for some spontaneity. Under these conditions, what pass/how should I book this?
Also, to add to this, I am wondering if anyone has trouble buying online tickets from the SBB website? It looks like it uses verified by visa, which is something I have run in to trouble with before... thanks
