First of all, this website has been so extremely helpful in helping us plan our trip to switzerland this July. I think I've gotten a pretty good handle on which pass we want to use. our itinerary is as follows:
flying to zurich and taking train to spiez July 14
spiez to zermatt july 21
zermatt to disentis july 22
disentis to samedan july 23
samedan to zurich july 24
while in spiez for the week, we will likely take a few short day trips, to Bern, for example. We've decided to therefore purchase a 5-day 1st class swiss flexi saver pass since we will for sure be traveling by train that many days and figured we could take advantage of the 50% discount on the small day trips we take. Please tell me if this sounds like a reasonable plan.
Biggest question is, we will be splitting the glacier express trip into two parts. Will we have to pay the reservation fee twice in order to do this?
any feedback will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much in advance!
