Prebooking must for Swiss mountain rides?

Jump to last reply

I was just told by a travel agent who is helping me with part-booking the trip (and will get me Swiss pass) that I need to pre-book gondola rides/train rides to the mountain peaks I want to visit, such as Mt Titlis, Jungfraujoch (I know, not a peak but still) etc.That means choose and pay for these before leaving for Switzerland.

Till now I was quite sure from reading all the fora on Switzerland that it is best to take a call on whether to go up these mountains after looking at the web cam that day, else the price is too steep to risk it.

I wanted to keep it flexible as a result, and not pre-book it. But this agent tells me that her Swiss pass terms and conditions mentions that outsiders (tourists) have to prebook such trips and can't get tickets once there.

Kindly let me know if there is any truth in this or not. The rules would not have changed in 2016, will they?

Thanks again.
