My husband and I (and our one year old daughter) plan to spend 1 week in Spiez from the 24th to 31st October 2014. We plan to do a fee day trips to places such as the alps, Schilthorn, Bern and possibly Gruyeres.
I think a Swiss Card will be the best value for us (but not entirely sure). So a few questions -
1. Can we enter And leave Switzerland from different places and still get the free transfer ticket?
2. How would I go about booking our arrival and departure trains? Should I book a separate ticket from Paris to Basel then use the Swiss Card from Basel to Spiez? And likewise would I book the train from Spiez to Venice at once, or the Spiez to border ticket separately?
3. Is there a discount for booking 2 tickets at once? And any other discounts for passes in the low season?
4. Are you able to tell me which trains/cable lines will be closed in the Bernese Oberland during this time (since it is low season)?
thanks very much
