      From French sector to Swiss Railway station at Airport

      Geneva 13 hours ago

      We will rent a car in France and drive to Geneva. To avoid international one way fare we would like to drop the car off at the French sector of the airport. Can we go to the Swiss sector to catch a train to Berne? I read the officials FAQ and studied the maps but do not come to an answer. They only describe the reverse case.

      Train tickets from Zermatt to Zurich

      Switzerland May 16, 2015 at 4:45 PM

      We will be ending a French/Swiss hiking trip in Zermatt and will be flying back to US from Zurich. I've been checking the Swiss Rail web-site for dates and times to Zurich.
      Am I correct that Swiss rail tickets do not go on sale until 30 days before departure? I can get schedules, but not fares. I don't need any Swiss rail pass since this will be the only Swiss rail ticket I have to buy. All other Swiss tranport is part of the hike trip. I know not to buy from Rail Europe due to extra cost. Is it even necessary to buy in advance or can I simply purchase ticket when I arrive in Zermatt? There seems to be many trains daily from Zermatt to Zurich. Any advice is most welcome.

    • Driving over the Simplon Pass

      by giller Online Now Aug 2, 2003 at 7:03 AM

      Visiting Valais 19th Aug. and want to visit an old friend who lives in cugnasco, a little worried about driving over the Simplon Pass as I'm not used to driving over mountain roads and also not used to driving on the left. Is it a dangerous route and did I see a train route that brings cars some of the way, also would that be very expensive. A little worried. Would appriciate honest opinions.
