My mother and I will be traveling for a week in late August and early September. I am looking at a Swiss Saver Pass as most of our traveling will be done together, but not always as she tires easily and I may like to go on my own for an afternoon. I have been researching the Saver Pass and am still confused as to whether I can have this pass and travel a little without my mother. The SBB website seems to say "yes" in their FAQ: "for example, taking a city excursion, day trip. But the travelling party must carry both (ticket and control voucher)." But I want confirmation before I buy the wrong pass.
Could I travel a little without my mother on a Saver Pass?
We will be arriving in Zurich and traveling to the Luzern area in Weggis for a couple of days. Then we plan on traveling through Brienz to the Berner Oberland. We plan to stay most of our trip in the area covered by the Berner Oberland regional pass, so I am debating on whether this is a good choice to purchase. We do plan to take a side trip to Vevey, which it seems that the Berner Oberland regional pass covers the trip to Montreux at 50%.
Of course, if we were to get the regional pass, we would probably not make the stops in Friburg and Murten on the way to and from Vevey.
Advice on which pass is the better purchase would be very welcome!
