in reply to Arno
Hi Arno. Im trying to convince them to take the 8 day pass for the 6 days they are there. They may not take the train on two of the day but if they use their 4 day pass for the bus, boats, etc--- it would count against them. Since they have to pay like $70.00 from the italian train and then the passes and all the room nights and they heard food is every expensive in Swiss- they are getting worried about their budgets. lol. So i would like to know.
#1 / Is there something i can supplement with for 2 days that would just cover boats, cogs, buses etc?
#2/ or if i can narrow down what they would really like to do on the 2 extra days maybe i can price out those things. How can I find out what a boat ride cost, a cog ride, ....a bus ride... etc.
#3/ or maybe they can use the travelpass only on the "big to do" days and they can purchase single train tickets? for example:
JUNE 13- THIS DAY must they use their Travelpass? when they are leaving grindewald to Interlaken (that train cost is cheap i think? - i entered it here but it doesnt show a price.) www.sbb.ch/en/buying/p ages/fahrplan/fahrplan .xhtml - which is fine. They will hang out half a day at Interlaken , then they will head to Lucerne to checkin to their hostel. it may be very late afternoon when they arrive- so can they just buy a train ticket from interlaken to Lucerne? because they probably wont be doing much that day other than walking around.
JUNE 16- OR can they save a day here? On this morning- they will checkout and go to Zurich for their last day. They will probably spend the day roaming the city. No need for train travel anymore because their hotel will have an airport shuttle.
any ideas? I saw other passes but i was confused. some say you must have a half card or something.
