I have some questions about travelling in Switzerland and hope I could find my answer here.
1) We are 4 adults and planning to get the Swiss Travel Pass of 8 days (2nd class). I understand this can be purchased only 3 months before my travelling date, correct?
From Milan to Luzern (via Arth Goldau) on 18 Aug 2016
In the SBB website, when I selected this journey, I only saw the option "For reduction" as attached but no option to select Swiss Travel Pass (except the Half-fare travelcard). Am I doing the correct way to purchase the train ticket? Or is it because I have chosen direct train without any transfer in the journey?
There is a "More" icon below the "Reduction for" and "Switzerland" box, but it seems no different in price if I select this box.
I did try another option to purchase a train ticket from Milan to Arth-Goldau at regular price first, then continue my journey from Arth Goldau to Luzern by using the Swiss Travel Pass.
I realise I have to pay the same fare for travelling from,
(1) Milan - Luzern via Arth Goldau in 2nd class at CHF10 (supersaver ticket)
(2) Mialn - Arth Goldau in 2nd class at CHF10 (supersaver ticket)
2) For this leg, I can't find the fare from Arth Goldau yet as it is not open for sale. I just want to check is the way I am buying the train ticket correct? So scare of buying the wrong train tickets and ended up lost!
Many thanks in advance for guiding me through the process. :)
