We're about to purchase our Swiss Pass for our June vacation. We're in the USA and I know there are several places I can purchase it, but are there advantages of buying one place over another?
I'm not buying from Raileurope! But I know I can buy from the Swiss Travel Site or the Rick Steves website (and others) for the same price, does it matter which?
The reason I ask is that there is a lot of confusing information out there on how to 'validate' the swiss pass. Some people say you can just write the date in yourself others say you have to find a train official. In some of these posts they indicate that WHERE you bought the pass has a bearing on this.
For convenience sake I would rather the date in myself as we will be entering Switzerland from Italy.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
