What are the advantages of first class over second?
I will buy 8 day Swiss travel pass. Travel from Luzern to interlaken to Geneva. mountain trips to Mt Titlis and Jungfrau.
Please have a look at www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/practical/2nd1stcl ass for the difference between 1st and 2nd class.
In general I would say that traveling in 2nd class is very comfortable. You can always upgrade to a first class ticket for a panoramic train for example. It will cost you half the difference between the 1st and 2nd class fares.
What we have found is that you have less people in first class, more room for yourself and your luggage.
We've never traveled in the peak summer months so we don't know anything about those times.
There was a major difference on the TGV from Paris to Basel but not so much on the Swiss trains.
Thanks Chantal, will go ahead with second class and upgrade to first as needed.
Thanks, Booked first class from Geneve to Paris TGV Lyria
Have a great trip. The service on the TGV was exceptional--we absolutely loved it!
