I wondered if anyone could help me with buying Swiss train tickets.
My girlfriend and I are planning to visit Basel, Lucerne, Interlaken, Bern and Geneva in December. I have had a look on the Travel Centre site which suggests that a Swiss Saver Flexi Pass for 3 or 4 days in 1 month is the way to go...this is £137 for second class.
However, on sbb.ch I have sought out individual fares listed in CHF and realised that it totals £49 for the journeys we need. This is for train tickets the week before we desire (i.e. Wed 11th Dec, whereas we actually want Wed 18th Dec).
When I try to select the dates we need though, I am greeted with this message...'You have selected a date after the end of the timetable period (09.12.12 - 14.12.13).'
Do I simply need to be patient for these individual fares to be available or am I unable to buy point-to-point fares this close to the end of the year for some reason? I only ask because the same message has shown for the past three weeks.
Thank you for any help.
