"I had no idea about these discount options on transportation in Switzerland when I made the bookings."
"It might be worth it to get the Saver Day Pass though for the day you go to Rigi. You have to pre-buy it a month in advance to get a good price (and then you have to go regardless of the weather) but that could work out well for you."
Because things were a little too simple, the Saver Day Pass has been introduced, so you can add another row and column to your spreadsheet, and spend more and more time to make preparations for a trip an unbelievable project in itself. I am speaking a little out of frustration, because after adding another reminder to my long list of travel reminders, I counted down to the 30 day advance range for a Saver Day Pass, and my mind blowing discovery for all that planning:
If I buy the Saver Day Pass for tomorrow I pay 59 CHF, if I buy it today for June 1st (you cannot be more in advance than that), you pay...49 CHF! That's right. You can't make this stuff up.
Thanks at least to the MySwissAlps community for trying their best to bring some sanity to this insane and essentially unredeemable process.
