We are in the same situation as you as we were going to fly to Geneva and have our flights in place but due to my husband being diagnosed last week with tinnatus we can no longer fly. So our option is similar to yours. We were going to get the eurostar from London to Paris and then change at Paris onto Geneva or Montreux.
Eurostar do promote one way fares at 29 euros but yet to find one of these cheapeast at the moment is £44 and then roughly £140 from paris to geneva
Rome2rio is a good website to look at for information and options.
My daughter went interrailing last year and said the problem is that Switzerland isnt so geared up to Interrail passengers as it has its own very good system of the Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Half Fare Card.
If alot of you travelling is in Switzerland then it might be better to get a individual train ticket to the swiss border and then buy the swiss travel pass as then all trains,buses and lake trips are free , also since researching many resorts are offering a free pass such as montreux offer the Swiss Riveria Card which offers 50% of Rochers de Naye the same discount if you had the Interrail or Swiss Travel Pass
i think the big advantage is whether if your stay if prodominately Switzerland and you want ease of just hopping on and off transport and days out without having to worry about carrying money etc then the Swiss Travel Pass is ideal and this is what actually sways the decision for us. with some planning it has paid for itself in more than one way use the SBB website and the planner for best train ticket pass on the website
Hope this helps if i find anymore info out for example train fares i will post info for you
