Hi Alok,

Welcome to MySwissAlps!

Staying in France when you actually want to visit Switzerland might be problematic if you are going to use public transport. Connections are not good, on average. Apart from that, your accommodation location and day trips are not anywhere close to each other. Please be sure to book a different accommodation, closer to the places you intend to visit, or change your wish list to closer attractions near Geneva and Montreux, for example. The timetable helps you with traveling times. Please have a look at that and you will see what I mean.

What's included in the Eurail passes can be found here. You do not need tickets for included routes.

Feel free to post a revised plan and any remaining questions you may have.

Hi Slowpoke,

The last link in my previous post shows all the Eurail discounts on main attractions and a downloadable map.

Hi Alok,

1. You don't need tickets. Please see my previous post. If you download the map from that link you'll see exactly what's covered.

2. You don't need to buy tickets in advance. You can buy them when you're in Switzerland. If online tickets are available, you'll find the links on our Jungfraujoch and Pilatus pages. I am not sure which code you mean; you do not need a code to get your discount.

I am not sure what you mean by "I was late in booking for accommodations due to which as suggested by you". Did we suggest specific accommodation or towns before and are they booked out now? Even if so, there will be hotel rooms available closer to the places you want to visit. Hotel Kreuz in Bern is an example.
