>> Does it make a difference who I purchase the pass from? I live in Canada so raileurope seems like the best option because they bill in CAD. I wouldn't be losing anything by going with them versus the swissrail website?
Do you mean the Swiss Travel Pass? You can see the current "best buy" options for your country of residence on the following page:
When you buy in Canadian dollars, a currency conversion fee is likely to be built into the Canadian dollar price, so you end up paying it one way or the other. However, you might avoid an additional foreign currency transaction fee if you buy in Canadian dollars - whether or not this fee is applied varies between financial services providers and products.
Whatever site you end up booking on, first make sure you are clear on whether the pass can be printed at home or has to be shipped, whether it needs to be validated before use, and whether there are any additional booking or shipping charges.
