We have limited time to travel by train in Switzerland, in particular the scenic route via the Alps.
The key question is what would be the most cost effective way to purchase tickets in order to travel the attached itinerary. Do we need eurorail passes?or do we just purchase as we go on the scenic trains and connecting trains? All train trips will be taken as early as possible on the day of travel
We arrive on 26 December from South Africa with an overnight flight in Zurich at 10h00 and have to be back in Zurich by 30 December 2017 to start our travel via rental car to Germany
1) Take a train from Zurich to Zermatt on 26 December 2017
2) 28 December from Zermat via the Glacier Express to Chur or Moritz (would it be best to stay over in Chur or Moritz)
3) 29 December on Bernina express Chur to Torino, or do we go back to Chur on the same day to travel to Zurich on the 30th. Would it be better to stay in Torino and travel via milan to Zurich on the 30th?
4) 30 december from Torino or Chur/moritz back to Zurich
To summarize the best is to know about which would be the cost effective rail pass or direct purchase from Glacier and Bernina express. Could we purchase a eurorail/rb pass andjust reserve seats on the express trains?
