Now there is the 2 for 1 offer available, I would just like to check the best option as we will be able to take advantage of this as we are travelling in September.
I have done my calculation for the costs involved for each day & obviously we will be better off using the pass on the most expensive 4 days of the 5 days we are there.
With the Swiss Saver pass we would need to pay full price for the 5th day & with the Swiss Saver Flexi Pass we would get half price for the 5th day.
I think the first day of our journey into Switzerland would be the cheapest day of travel being from the Austrian border to Lucerne, so we would not start using our
passes till day 2.
I think both passes cover us completely for the 4 days & the only additonal costs we have are for sections of the Mt Pilatus trip & the Schilthorne, which
will incur the same costs with both passes. Given the initial cost of each pass & the additional cost of day 5 there is very little difference in the cost of each pass.
Am I on the right track in both of these cases? Which pass would you recommend then?
My next query is regarding the final day in Switzerland, when we will be travelling from Lauterbrunnen to Zurich airport. 3 of us will be ending our journey here & the 4th person
will be continuing to the border. Is he able to still use the pass to the border, even though the rest of us have finished travelling?
Last question - how far in advance can the passes be purchased. As we will be leaving Australia earlier than the 3 weeks postage time, I will have the passes delivered, so we can
collect them in Germany.
Thank you very much for all your help - it is very much appreciated & really helps with the planning process.
