I am requesting my travel agent to get a Swiss pass. Am from India.
However, uncovered a curious thing that one of them mentioned. She told me that Swiss travel pass holders will have to pre-book visits to the mountain tops? Such as Mt Titlis, Jungfraujoch etc?
I was under the impression that it is better to take a call on whether to go up on these mountain peaks using the cable cars/gondolas/cogwheels only after checking the weather that day, the web cam etc. So, was keeping it flexible by not pre-booking but just getting the Swiss travel pass (I used your valuable excel sheet and this is the one which is working out as more cost-effective, more than the half pass with airport city transfers).
It could be that it was just a selling tactic, but she sounded earnest, even citing terms and conditions of Swiss pass that mentions that such rides will have to be booked at the time of Swiss pass purchases. I have not till now seen any mention of something like this on the Internet.
Problem is most Indian friends choose to go for a group tour which don't need these to be figured out.
Is there any such rule in the fine-print that needs these places to be pre-booked? I could not dredge up any email id of the official Swiss pass guys either to write to. Was wondering if you would be able to help shed some light?
