We will be spending 5 days in Switzerland beginning April 09. We will be spending the 1st night at Murren, 2nd night at Interlaken and the last 3 nights at Lucerne. In between we will ride the full route of Glacier Express from Zermatt to St Moritz.
We have Half Fare Cards and we will be using public transportation system (trains, buses, cable cars etc). We have our seats already reserved in Glacier Express. We now want to buy all other tickets in advance as per our plan.
I am trying to understand if this would be possible.
1) Do the tickets purchased on line have an exact journey date and time or once purchased, we can use them any day any time on that route.
2) Is SBB one single source to purchase all tickets for trains, boats, buses and cable cars ?
3) If we want to decide on the spot that we want to go from Murren to Gimmewald, where do we buy the tickets - at the cable car station with Half Fare Card ?
4) Do we need to carry cash for bus rides or on the spot ticket purchase or credit cards are accepted everywhere ?
Any information will be appreciated.
