I have to travel from lucerne to paris via zurich. Now after reaching zurich hb, I have around 9 minutes transfer time to board a tgv for paris. Its a morning train on 17th nov 2015 , I will reach zurich from lucerne by 9.25am and my train to paris is at 9.34 by tgv.
so I want to know is 9 min transfer time enough to board another train. And by chance if our train reaches late and the paris tgv train leaves . Do I need to pay extra amt to board another train which is after 2 hrs on that day. Pls note we are purchasing 2 nd class inflexible point to point ticket and we Are not purchasing any Swiss passes.
also if we purchase first class ticket will it help us to board another train free of charge in case we miss our train? So what do you recommend , we need to board this train as we don't want to reach paris late in evening. Should be go for first class ticket or should be take another train which reaches zurich by 11.54 and gives 26 min transfer time.
My another big query is since we are going from zurich to paris i.e. One country to another, Do we need to go for any immigration chk up at zurich station before we board the paris train???
