Welcome to the forum Div! When posting further reactions, would you please not write in capitals only, as requested in the forum rules? Thank you :-)!

As for your questions: a Swiss rail pass will be cheaper than regular tickets. I think you should look into a 3 day Swiss Flexi Pass, using free travel days for November 21, 22 and 25. The Swiss leg of your outbound trip before midnight will also be for free. You can buy discounted tickets for your trips on November 23 and 24. Please find all details and purchase options at the Swiss Flexi Pass page.

Your itinerary looks fine to me. Do note that boat rides over lake Brienz aren't possible in November, as far as I'm aware. Please check the BLS timetable. You can make a boat ride over lake Thun though, which fits even better in your schedule: by boat to Thun, then continue by train to Bern and Zurich. All train trips can be planned with the Swiss timetable.

Hello Div! Yes, Titlis and Jungfraujoch are accessible on your travel dates. Only in extreme weather circumstances these routes may be shut downs, but that's exceptional.

Hi sushmita, and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Yes, it's available there during opening hours. All purchase options, both online and in Switzerland, can be found on the Swiss Pass page. The pass would indeed be a good choice for your trip.

Please post further questions about the 2-for-1 promotion in the associated topic or create a topic of your own. The current topic is not related to your question.

Hi
I was in Switzerland from 13th to 17th of October
Since you are travelling a lot, siwss pass is very cheap and convenient compared to point to point ticket
Siwss pass should be obtained from your country and cannot buy in Switzerland. You can buy online.It takes few days to reach you. Apply not itself
If you buy the Swiss saver pass you can travel in all the trains,buses and cable cars.
I was staying at Interlaken one night. You can go to to the top of the muntain by cable car.
If you need futher clarfication you can write to my personal e mail address: najim5543@yahoo.com
All the best of luck
