You have greatly helped me in making my decision that I will for many reasons take the 2nd class
My mainly was tempted to consider 1st class thinking my mom(70) may find it difficult to stand during peak hours and we may also have more space. If we are getting 1st class with additional 12% of second class, it was worth it. Nevertheless, I have decided to take the 2nd class travel pass once I am in swistzerland
1. The intent is to have fun and joy- which we love to talk and interact. I am afraid if I have to maintain discipline as needed in an office environment.
2. Also, the hassles of making an online payment and claiming the refund (which is 22%) in case I need to cancel is not worth. I got a time-out or page not found error when I tried to delete the products from Rail Europe. This was a cause of concern since I tried it several times and it was not a one-time error.
3. One last question- I saw the money for taking the Wilhelm tell express, It says we need to buy the upgrade pass- I see that 33 CHF is the price in Winter (Till 16th April, they mentioned it as a winter ticket cost) .So, if I travel in 2nd class Travel pass and buy 3 upgrade tickets for Wilhelm tell express, I will be able to get the food, souvenier and a good view. Is this correct?
Looking forward to your reply
