I think I am best purchasing the 15 day swiss pass saver. What would be the most cost effective way of purchasing The Swiss Pass from the states? Travel in September 2014.
2 adults flying to Zurich and train to Luzern (staying 3 nights visiting Mt Pilatus), train Luzern to Lausanne (staying 3 nights, boat and trains to Montreux, Gruyeres, and towns in Lavaux area, Golden Pass Montreux to Interlaken staying 5 nights in Gimmelwald visiting The Shilthorn, Jungfraujoch, and boat on Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. Train travel Interlaken to Milano then onto Monterosso. 11 nights in Switzerland.
I have worked the numbers and am close in cost by either buying swiss saver pass and paying as I go. I would like the convenience of the pass and it will also include some museums along the way.
How far in advance do I need to buy the pass and from whom?
Thanks for your help.
