My friend an I are planning on our very first Europe Trip this October, and part of our IT is Switzerland. Excited!
We're flying from Nice to Geneva on 11th October Arrival 12:45pm.
So our IT in Switzerland will be:
11th -- Geneva to Zermatt
12th -- Zermatt to St Moritz through Glacier Express
15th -- St Moritz to Venice
We've read about Swiss Flexi Pass, will it be more affordable for us to buy a 4-Day or 5-Day non-consecutive pass ?
If our understanding is correct, We just need to put our 4 or 5 days in the Swiss Flexi pass:
1. 11th Oct -
2. 12th Oct - we would need the pass for our travel within St Moritz ?
3. 13th Oct -
4. 14th Oct -
5. 15th Oct - towards the Boarding Point from Switzerland to Venice, from there we will need to have a separate ticket to Venice.
I've read that the railway station is just walking distance from Geneva Airport, if my understanding is correct, with the Swiss Flexi Pass, we need not book our travel from Geneva to Zermatt. We'll just show the pass to the Train Operator before we board the train ?
There's also another Swiss Pass, which is only for 4 days or 8 days, I'm not sure where our trip will fit in.
There's also a Half-fare card available it seems, but the disadvantage is that we have to buy our tickets from each rail station to avail of the 50% off.
There seems to have lots of different passes available, and as we go along reading them, we get so confused. :(
Also, can we have some inputs what clothes to bring in October, should we bring Winter clothes or we'll be able to survive with layered clothes?
For your advise and suggestions.
Thanks a lot.
