Me and my husband are planning to spend 8 days in Switzerland and Austria. We started looking at the rail passes as an option.
I did look at point to point ticket costs also to all our stops and have a table for that.
We are thinking of either buying Swiss pass for 4 days or Swiss-Austria eurail pass for 8 days. Right now we are really confused about which one to go for or skip both and just go for point to point tickets :). This is my itinerary for the 8 days. Can you tell us which pass should we go for? Or should we go for point to point tickets?
