Welcome to the forum Gitz! I'm glad you like it. As for rail passes: since you'll be traveling in September, the most economical option for you is the 2 for 1 offer
on the 4 day Swiss Saver Pass
, to be used for September 6-9. If you leave Zurich by train on September 10, you can buy regular train tickets for this trip. An alternative would be to buy the 2 for 1 offer on the 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
, using free travel days on September 6, 8, 9 and 10 (for this Swiss leg of your outbound trip) and a discounted day on September 7. But if you plan to do quite some traveling on September 7, e.g. to the Titlis, this won't be cheaper than the 4 day Swiss Saver Pass option. Both couples can buy this offer.
Whether the one couple also needs a rail pass for France, depends on their travel plans over there. They may look into the Eurail France-Switzerland Pass
, but this doesn't cover as much in Switzerland as the Swiss Saver Pass does and there's no comparable 2 for 1 deal on this pass.
A tip for composing your itinerary: you can use the Swiss timetable
to find all information on routes, traveling times and costs. You can continue further questions in this same topic, unless you have questions on a specific subject or something that's not closely related to your itinerary.
