My husband and I and two 26 year olds will be using the Swiss Rail pass for four non-consecutive days of travel in November. I have not ascertained whether it is better to purchase the 4 day passes from the Rail Europe website or perhaps another site? We will be joining up in Zurich from the US, Scotland and Denmark to begin the travel. It will be our first time to use a pass, and we eagerly anticipate the beauty of the alps. The only part we will have to get separate tickets for (it seems) will be the Luzern-Zurich airport train before leaving which would be day 5. Also if you have thoughts about reserving a particular car/seat for any of these segments we will greatly appreciate that advice. The segments we plan to use the pass for are:
Zurich-Interlaken (Unterseen) 23 Nov.
Interlaken-Lukerbad 25 Nov.
Lukerbad-Locarno 27 Nov.
Locarno-Luzern 29 Nov.
Luzern-Zurich 30 Nov.
Any recommendations and suggestions are welcome!
