Well with help from you all, I have booked my TGV tickets to Paris online and printed the tickets. I decided against using my Swiss pass flex 15 day pass on any of the journey . Did the math and it was as cheap to just buy the TGV ticket Bern to Paris direct...where after one weeks holiday I will be leaving my granddaughter to return to Bern. I have also bought a ticket from Paris to Basel on the TGV but couldn't get a direct train except for one that arrived at 10.50pm in Bern. Much too late for an old lady :o)
Or the other option was a change in Basel of 5 minutes so again not suitable.
This way I get to leave Paris at 12.23 close to the time my granddaughter leaves for London, but with a change in Basel to a local train to Bern. Very easy and it will have me in Bern well before dinner.
Thankyou so much for all of your input it made me think of things I wouldn't have.
