travelling to switzerland & paris with my wife and 9yr daughter - have bought a swiss flexi pass (4days in 1month) & the family card, here is my itinerary:
*day1 - land in zurich, take train to interlaken *validate and use swiss flexi pass + family card*
day2 - interlaken to grindelwald (take 50% discount) and then to jungfrau (i think swiss pass holders get 25% discount) -- only take discount, dont use swiss pass
*day3 - interlaken to zermatt & glacier express (will make seat reservations) *use swiss pass*
*day4 - interlaken to luzern. luzern - pilatus (50% discount on golden ticket) *use swiss pass*
day5 - luzern to engelberg (take 50% discount), buy titlis tickets at 50% -- only take discount, dont use swiss pass
*day6 - luzern to basel; basel to paris (tgv lyria) *use swiss pass* for travel to basel and to avail of 'passholder 3 fare' discount on tgv-lyria
a couple of queries:
1. on the days i dont wish to use my swiss pass day (day2: interlaken-jungfrau & day5: luzern-titlis), what should i say at the station when i'm buying tickets?
2. do i need to validate my 'passholder 3 fare' tgv-lyria tickets at the basel station?
