Hi Happy10. I wouldn't recommend the Eurail France-Switzerland Pass if you only need the return trip Paris-Swiss border. You'd pay way too much, as the pass provides free traveling throughout France. Buying a separate ticket for this French leg is a lot more economical. Looking at your itinerary for Switzerland, I think you'd be best off with a Swiss Half Fare Card, especially if you land at Zurich and travel onto Lucerne. You can calculate exactly which pass is cheapest though, using the guidelines in our FAQ
On the detail page of each pass (such as the Swiss Half Fare Card page
or the Swiss Flexi Pass page
) you can fill out your country of residence, further travel data and the preferred pass variant. This will result in an overview of reseller. Just click 'Show more information' with each reseller for an overview of shipping times and estimated delivery dates. Generally, delivery through TrainTicket to Singapore takes about 8 business days.
Reservation fees for panoramic trains aren't discounted with either pass, so you'll pay the full fare for this. The trip itself will be discounted by 50% though. If you don't want to make seat reservations in advance
due to the weather, you can arrange for them at the Lucerne station. November isn't high season, so you may still manage to reserve seats this way. You can also choose to travel the same route in a regular train, that doesn't require seat reservations, instead of in a panoramic Golden Pass train.
