Arrival at basel on 7th Sep 2012 in the evening.
8th, 9th, 10 th and 11th (4 days stay in swiss)
Depart from basel airport on 12th Sep at early morning.
Should i buy both Swiss pass and Swiss transfer ticket pass.
or I Should only buy Swiss pass and buy tickets individually to reach the hotel/Airport on travelling dates ?
What kind of pass i should buy.
Can you please suggest.

Welcome to MySwissAlps kakak!

Can you provide some additional information? What trips do you intend to make during your four days? Where will you spend the nights? What's your country of residence?

Hi

I am very much confuse about this pass, kindly let me know from where I can buy this?
Is this only from online and I need to order from shipping.
Is this not available at Railway station, if it is so much is "2 for 1 offer Swiss Saver (Flexi) Pass" for 4 days.

Hi Kamal,

This is the third time I have to ask you to post in relevant topics only. You're free to create a new topic as well. Please read our forum rules and act upon them. Thanks!

All resellers of the Swiss Pass can be found on the right hand side of the Swiss Pass page. Just select your country, preferred pass, etc. to see the options. I hope this answers your question!

Hello kakak. The destinations you mention can all be well reached from Interlaken. The entire Golden Pass between Lucerne to Montreux would be a bit too much in my opintion, but you can also travel part of this route, e.g. to Lucerne when heading for the Titlis. The best thing you can do is enter your destinations in the timetable (enter 'Kleintitlis' for the Titlis). This allows you to make an exact planning for each trip, including routes and traveling times. Enter 'Meiringen' as a via-station for the Golden Pass route between Interlaken and Lucerne. And do note that it's recommend to make seat reservations in advance.

Swiss rail passes are listed in this overview. There's a detail page on each pass, explaining exactly how to use it. These FAQ may get you started too. Since you're traveling in September, you may be eligible for the 2 for 1 offer on the 4 day Swiss Saver Pass. If you order a pass before September 5, you can profit from additional discounts. This would be the most economical option if you plan to travel with someone else.
