Trying to keep a side-trip to Paris as an option if weather is bad when I get into Switzerland. I will be having a Swiss half fare card. Would appreciate any inputs on the following questions
I see a direct train from Lausanne to Paris. It is labelled TGV:
A. Do kids also travel free on these trains like in the Swiss trains with a paying adult? Kids aged 2 and 7 if it makes a difference
B. Does Swiss half-fare card get any discount on this train? For some reason SBB website is not showing any price. A 3rd party lists the price as $168 (pretty steep compared to Swiss trains of the same 4hr duration!)
Are there any "overnight" trains between Paris & Lausanne/Interlaken/Bern. Overnight = get in at ~10PM, sleep and get out early morning?
Any Eurorail pass that is approximately in the same price range as Swiss half fare and gets discounts on both Swiss trains and the train to Pais?
