In July next year we are traveling to Europe from Australia and finding the information confusing in regard to rail passes we need. We will be flying into Paris and staying there for about 4 days then we want to travel to Switzerland by train staying for around 6 days visiting places like Zermatt, St.Moritz, Lugano and Zuric and other places along the way possibly using the Glazier Express and Bernina Express then we need to travel to Barcelona by train to catch a cruise. Researching the train travel and passes needed I am having trouble understanding if a euro rail pass will include our travel to and around Switzerland or do we need a Swiss pass for that and also train travel to Barcelona. Or is it simply cheaper to book individual train trips. Like most we are trying to fit in as much as possible for as little cost and all the travel agents want to do is sell you guided tours which can be very expensive but also lock you into schedules. There’s a lot to my question but hopefully I can get some ideas to continue my planning.
