Sigh....Swiss Pass HELP!

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone - I know that I am taking a risk even asking this here, since I KNOW it has been asked many times before and I HAVE read all of the posts and articles. However, everyone here has been so incredibly helpful in my trip planning that I am going out on the limb.

There are two of us, one adult and one senior, travelling over a period of 7 days.
We will be travelling from Alba (Italy) > Zermatt (unsure of that route so far) > Lucerne > Zurich. During this time, we would like to complete the golden circle, as well as see the customary mountain sights near Zermatt.

Which Swiss Pass do we need?! It seems like the swiss saver flexi pass? But I would really love some confirmation before I shell out the $$ for two people!

Also, do I buy from SBB or Raileurope? It seems that prices are not necessarily the same. Once I have the pass, are reservations necessary?? I understand that Alba>Zermatt has a few possibilities and because of all of the train changes it makes me nervous to book in advance, although we definitely want the most scenic route possible!

At the risk of sounding completely ignorant, I am not sure if it is my lack of math or logical abilities, but I absolutely cannot wrap my head around this. I have never found anything so confusing before!

Thank you so much in advance!
