basel to lucerne tickets

I will be arriving with my family (wife and 3 kids) from Paris to Basel via Eurostar on the 19th of October 1013. I need to proceed to Lucerne where I have planned my stay. Do I need to pre book tickets from Basel to Lucerne. Can I buy the swiss pass/ half fare on arrival to Basel or should I buy it before reaching Basel. Are the prices different if I buy in advance. Thanks.

i arrived in basel by lyria from paris withouth a ticket to lucerne

upon arrival in basel, i bought the ticket basel - lucern from the ticket machine

very easy

the machine speaks english and takes cash euro / francs

there is also a ticket window but i didnt use it so cant comment on it

dont worry

it is very easy indeed

you can also change euro to francs at the money changer on the ground floor

i suggest you change your euro as soon as possible good luck

And same applies for the Pass/HFC. Buy in Basel, buying in advance is even slightly more expensive due to postage and handling fees.

All the best,
