Using the Swiss Pass

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I need some clarity on the swiss pass and how it works.
My boyfriend and I are planning to spend about 7 days in switzerland this coming May. We haven't booked any of our rail tickets yet (except for the Glacier Express St. Moritz-Zermatt) but have a good idea of what we want to do. I recently found out about the Swiss Pass and the Flexi pass but I am still unable to determine what would be best for us/if its really worth it. Here is what we hope to do:
- coming in on the 16th from Fussen Germany, after seeing Neuschwanstein Castle to St Moritz.
- Glacier express on the 17th
- Zermatt to Interlaken the 19th. hopefully also to Jungfraujoch that day as well
- spend the 20 and 21 in Interlaken and getting to Montreux. possibly by the GoldenPass Line
- 22nd and 23rd in Geneva and around the lake, visiting Chillon Castle and boat tour etc. before we fly to Nice the evening of the 23rd.

I know there are lots of benefits to the card and I'm sure we would get our value out of it, but when I look to book any train segments on SBB there doesn't seem to be a swiss pass discount option. I'm not sure how the card works, if you just show up and get on the train or not. We don't want to get "stranded" somewhere in case we don't book ahead, because we don't have a lot of time. Is not booking prior to leaving for the trip a big deal? is it really easy to just get on and off as we need or do we need tickets to ensure we will get on the train.

Also is it free-just show the card to get on regular trains? or do we need to purchase a discounted ticket as well.
thanks for any help!
