A little help sorting through rail passes?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are going to Europe for the first time. We'll be there the last week in August and the first week of September. Plenty of time to plan, but I'm having a hard time making sense of all the rail pass options.. Our itinerary so far:

8/25- 8/28: Cotswolds (fly into London, then bus to Chipping Campden as home base)
8/29: bus to London, do the quick tour and stay the night
8/30- 9/2: Train to Paris, where we'll be for 4 days. Possible day trip to Versaille or Fontainebleau
9/3- 9/7: Train to Interlaken, then to Lauterbrunnen, where we'll be for 5 nights (with trips to Schilthorn, Jungfrau, Lake Thun, etc)
9/8: Train to Zurich Airport for return to US

What's the smartest way to do this? Coming from Paris to Interlaken, we'd like to get the quickest route, although we'd consider spending more time on a longer, more scenic route. While in Lauterbrunnen, we'll be using the cable cars and funiculars pretty much every day, and I know most rail passes offer half off; I don't want to get anything unnecessary, though.

If anyone can offer any help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
