After much research and questions answered my husband and I have decided on the 8 day Swiss Travel Pass for our honeymoon! What is the biggest difference between 1st and 2nd class? Besides the price of the tickets, what are the advantages or disadvantages of the different classes?

We will be traveling in and around Zurich - Lucerne- Interlaken-Zurich

Thank you!

Hi Jfblake23,

In a nutshell: 1st class is quieter and there's more space. You'll find more details here: ain/practical/2nd1stcl ass. With kids I'd recommend 2nd class. If you're on a budget then 2nd class is perfectly fine as well. If you prefer a more spacious environment, then 1st class is a good choice.

Purchase options for your pass can be found here: isstravelpass/price.
