It would not be economical to purchase a rail pass for our itinerary. We won't have a smart phone. Is there a way to purchase individual train tickets at the various stations without one? Thank you, iepkamin

Hi Iepkamin,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! Sure, all train stations have ticketing machines and larger ones have a staffed ticket desk too. There is no need for a phone.

Just to make sure your calculations are correct: the timetable shows discounted prices by default, so don't assume those are the regular prices. The regular prices are at least twice as much as the first price shown.

Enjoy your trip!
