Hello there,

I am hoping you could assisst me in choosing the best swiss rail pass since I am planning to travel to switzerland in November. I feel quite overwhelmed by looking at all different passes and can't seem to select the best one for purchase.

Here is my itenary:

Day 1: Arrive in Zurich airport in the morning and travel to Lucerne ( Where our hotel is)

Day 2: Lucerne to Zurich for sight seeing (Take the train there and back to hotel in Lucerne in the evening)

Day 3: Lucerne to Basel for sight seeing ( Back at the hotel in Lucerne in the evening)

Day 4: Lucerne to Bern for sight seeing ( Back at the hotel in Lucerne in the evening)

Day 5: Lucerne to Geneva ( Back at the hotel in Lucerne in the evening)

Day 6: Stay in Lucerne for sightseeing

Day 7: Staying in Lucene for sightseeing

Day 8: Lucerne to Zurich airport ( Last day going back)

Do you recommend a Swiss half fare card or point to point to tickets? Please advise.
