Help! Which Swiss train pass to buy? Leaving in a week.

Jump to last reply

Hi - We need help buying a Swiss train pass. Leaving in one week. I looked at the train websites but am still confused. These are the train routes we (2) will be taking:
Sept 2 - Geneva airport to Zermatt
Sept 4 - Zermatt to Wengen
Sept 7 - Wengen to Lucern
Sept 9 - Lucern to Stresa

Should I purchase 2 Swiss passes now online?
Are there cheaper sites or are the passes price controlled?
If we have the pass, do we have to pay any other money on the train?
Do they email them or can I pick them up at the Geneva airport?
With a Swiss pass, can we get on any train or do you need a reservation?
How do we know if the train is full before leaving for the train station?

Sorry for all the questions. Thanks in advance.
