A friend and I are going to be in Switzerland from the 12th to the 20th of Dec but we are trying to travel for a brief holiday via train from Zurich to Zermatt on the 17th of Dec, from Zermatt to Lucerne on the 18th and Lucerne to Zurich on the 19th.
I see that the Swiss Pass is the best deal but am concerned about seat availability or not being able to get on the train we want due to overbooking as I do understand that this is the peak season. Would we be guaranteed a place on a train regardless with the pass? Or should we instead book point to point in order to assure us each a seat on the train? As we are limited in the days that we can travel for fun (i.e. 17-19) and we would need to be assured of getting on the train in the AM on the 17th, etc.
Any advice you can offer is appreciated!
