|Subject: Re: Swiss Pass or Swiss Card or ...?|
Hi, I agree with don and Linda--the Swiss Pass may be the best thing for
you. You can get one for 8 days and that appears to be all you will need.
If you need an extra day you can always buy a ticket for whichever is the
shortest distance--the first or the last day.
Be sure you can buy the pass when in Switzerland before you leave home without it. I read somehwere a long time ago in some book that you could buy the Swiss Pass at the main railway station in Zurich or Geneva, but no where else in Switzerland and you must have a passport showing you live somewhere else.
We always have purchased our Swiss Pass before we left home. You can get one from your travel Agent or from Rail Europe http://www.raileurope.com
