Hi roopesh,

An 8-day Swiss Pass (or Swiss Saver Pass if you're traveling with 2 or more) would be the most comfortable solution, as you get free traveling and only buy reduced tickets for cable cars/mountain trains. The Swiss Pass is fairly cheap in the UAE, if ordered online. These promo codes may provide even more discount. However, it's too late to have the pass shipped to your home address. While ordering through Rail Europe, you will have the option of collecting your pass from several local offices. That's still an option. A ticket from the Swiss border (Basel) to Paris can be ordered along there. If you buy in Switzerland, prices are higher, as you can see on the Swiss Pass page.

If you're looking for the most economical option, I would say that you need the Swiss Half Fare Card. Then you would buy reduced tickets for each trip.

Good luck with your work and enjoy your stay!
