Hello to everyone!
I’m planning to visit Switzerland and travel throughout the country by myself. I want to buy a Swiss Saver Pass and use mainly the trains. I know a lot about its fantastic convenience and functionality. But there’s some points I’m rather vague about and I’d like to make them clear beforehand.
For example, I’m planning to go from Interlaken to Geneva Airport. Using SBB website I can get information concerning some concrete date, e.g. 10.05.12. Could you please tell me, how will I know for sure that the train arriving at the Interlaken West station at 09:32 is the needed R 6113? Will it be marked somehow with the letters “R 6113” or something? And how will I know on which station I should get off the train to make change in order to reach Geneva Airport? Will the stations be announced or, maybe, shown on electronic board?
And in this situation I have some information about the time, the trains and the points of changing the trains taken from the SBB website beforehand. But what if I’ll miss the needed train or if I’ll have to go somewhere else on the spot? Being right on the railway station and having no Internet on tap, how will I know what train to sit on to get to e.g. Zurich, where to make changes, if necessary, and when to get off? Please, kindly explain it to me.
Another question concerns the luggage. I’ll have to travel from Geneva to Gruyer in the morning, spend there the whole day and in the evening go from Gruyer to Interlaken. May my luggage be left in some Gruyer’s cloakroom for this day? How and where can it be organized? How much does it cost?
The information concerning these points will bring the invaluable help to me. I would be extremely thankful for your answers.
Thanks a lot in advance.
