Hi billcoke. Great you made such detailed calculations. It's hard for me to tell whether they're correct, as I get different prices - even if converted into SGD - from the SBB timetable, which is the most trustworthy source for your Swiss rail calculations. I'd say a Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
is better for several reasons. First of all, it allows you to be more flexible and adapt your plans, profiting from discounts or free traveling even if you travle more than you planned. Moreover, you didn't include the discounted trip to Mt. Pilatus on Sept. 11 in your list plus all the discounts on urban transportation in Interlaken, Lucerne and Zurich.
Furthermore, I don't think you should take a 5 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass. A free travel day on Sept. 8 isn't really worth your money, as the pass grants free traveling up to Grindelwald only. From there, a 25% applies anyway, both on non-free and free travel days. I think you should look into the very economical 2 for 1 offer on the 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
instead, valid for traveling in Fall 2012. You can order it through our partner STC/Swissrailways
. (Other partners offer this too, but most of them only for April and May yet.) This will drastically lower the expenses of your pass (about SGD 200 per person) and thus change your calculations.
