Thanks a lot for your compliments and welcome to our website! Let's take a look at your questions:
1. The 8-day Swiss Saver Pass is indeed the best choice, assuming that you'll use it from 22/9 to 29/9. It is valid for any train on the railway lines that are displayed on the network map we link to from the Swiss Pass page
. Some panoramic trains require you to buy an additional seat reservation
. 99% of the trains does not require a reservation so you can just hop on with your pass.
2. Your itinerary looks good and is certainly doable. It does not cover "all" important places, but that's not a realistic goal for 9 days. Your itinerary allows you to see many beautiful places. Hopefully you like it so much you'll come back for more one day. Geneva and Zurich both offer enough for a 1-day city trip. I know Zurich better and it's full of nice places to visit, as you can see in various forum topics like this one
. By the way, you may want to consider visiting Zurich on 22/9, as you're already there. It saves you an additional return trip from Bern and may leave time to do something else at the end of your stay.
3. Yes, Trainticket.com
is definitely reliable. It's a new website so relatively unknown. You can be assured that we don't include resellers we do not trust. You can view more details about them if you click "Show more information" on any of our pages where they are listed. I don't know about the warning message. I just checked and did not see it. It may be a temporary issue, or depending on which browser or even search engine you use. If you see it again and have more details I'll be glad to look into it.
Did this answer your questions?
