Question about SBB saver fares

Jump to last reply

We're off to Germany and Switzerland on Sunday.

We plan to purchase a 15 day Swiss Saver Pass for the time that we'll be in Switzerland. As we'll arrive in Zurich five days before we need the Swiss Pass, I hope to purchase it upon arrival and have it post-dated for five days later.

From Zurich we will head to Germany - I'm trying to sort out the German portion.

I've priced the train fare from Zurich to Freiburg im Breisguu at 64 CHF each for regular fare, and 36 CHF for saver fare. My understanding is that the saver fare is for specific trains and days only.

So my question - in order to get this fare do I need to book now, online or will this fare also be available on a walk-in basis for specific trains?

Are fares lower during non-peak travel times? If so, what are these times? Is there any savings to be had in using Regio trains vs ICE trains?
