Hi There!

I am trying to make the best decision in terms of transportation in Swizerland. My husband and I will be traveling around Switzerland in late September and we want to make a decision based on how much we will potentially spent by train/bus or if we should rent a car. Attached is our itinerary.

Hi tlozanoargel,

I think, normally, train travel in Switzerland is best. It can get a little tricky with visits to smaller towns (and a few trips per day, like at the beginning of your schedule).

Use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out all your trips and see what schedules you can make: https://www.myswissalp

If you decide on train travel, you will probably want to buy a rail pass: https://www.myswissalp ses

To find what works best for your itinerary, you need to plan out all trips you will make (train, bus, boat, cable car) and compare the prices for regular tickets to the rail pass price (and which routes/mountains are free or discounted). Once you have that information you can read our page here on how to choose the best rail pass. There is a spreadsheet there to help with the math. :)
