I ll be going to swiss on the 28th of May
and we will be entering Switzerland from Paris reaching Geneva
my trip will be roughly like
Geneva -- Chexbres Village (using route passby Lausanne to drop my luggage)
Rivaz -- Spiez (using route passby Lausanne to collect my luggage)
Spiez -- Interlaken -- lauterbrunnen
Q1.Can i purchase my ticket from Rivaz directly to Lauterbrunnen and stop by Spiez for a stop of 1 - 2 hours? which one is better a combine ticket or separate ticket.
Lauterbrunnen -- Luzern
Luzern -- Bellinzona
Bellinzona -- Locarno
Locarno -- Bellinzona
Bellinzona -- Venesia
Q2,.As Bellinzona -- Locarno route i have purchase in day 3, can i reuse it on day 4 just in case i need it to get back to hotel?
Q3.All the trip above i m planning to use it with swiss half fare card as it looks cheaper, is there anywhere to double confirm it?
Q4. i have purchase ticket from lyon de gare to Geneva , and ticket from Bellinzona to Locarno online, and i read somewhere saying that the train ticket can claim for VAT. is it true? if so how can i claim it? as i didnt register under SBB user. Do i need to keep my printed copy as proof?
Q5. i notice that there is machine selling train ticket on the station? can i purchase it using my credit card? as i m aware, the credit card i m holding doesnt have PIN, only require to sign during swiping my credit card.
