Hello duttashovan13. If you do want to make all your trips by public transport, that changes things.
As for the Swiss (Saver) Pass
: it's valid on consecutive days, so an 8 day Swiss Saver Pass offers 8 consecutive days of free traveling and it doesn't matter whether you make long, short or no trips at all; the pass is valid anyway. Your question on 'days spent on the Swiss Pass' may be more relevant to the Swiss (Saver) Flexi Pass
, which offers a number of non-consecutive days of free travelling and other days with discounts. With the Swiss Flexi Pass, you can choose yourself which days you want to count as free travel days, and which days you use for discounted travel. You'll find all details on the Swiss Flexi Pass page
Looking at your updated itinerary, I think a 5 or 6 Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
is the best choice. You should use your free travel days for
07.07 Swiss border-Lucerne
(08.07 Lucerne-Titlis/Pilatus. This depends on your exact plans. For example: the Pilatus can easily be reached from Lucerne, but it can be combined with a round trip including a boat as well. If you opt for the round trip, you may want to profit from free traveling on train, bus and boat this day.)
14.07 Zermatt-St. Moritz
15.07 St. Moritz-Zurich
(16.07 Zurich-Swiss border)
and discounted travel days for the remaining days.
You can either purchase your discounted train and cable car tickets in advance, or at the spot at the valley stations. That's up to you. If you want to have the flexibility to change your plans (for example, in case of bad weather), it may be better not to book them in advance.
