Swiss Pass dilemma

Jump to last reply

Well after looking and looking at Swiss Passes I thought I had made a decision.

Purchase 2 8 day 1st class passes. But purchasing them in Australia, my only option seems Rail Europe. And of course their prices are at a premium.

Our first day of use will be catching a train from Tirano after travelling from Bellagio. My question is, can I wait and purchase the ticket in Tirano about an hour before the train departure. We wanted to catch the Bernina Express to Chur and then a connecting train to Lucerne. But I never like to leave things to the last minute.

Do you think I will have time to organise the passes in time on day of departure? Is Tirano only a small station?

Or is there a better option?
