Hi,

I hope you can offer me some advice. I'm traveling to Switzerland next week but have been caught about by how much I am going to have to pay for my train travel.

I'm going Geneva-Berne-Interlaken-Lucerne and then back to Geneva again over 4 days. The cost without any railcard is going to be about £180.

I've looked at what's available and the only thing that seems possible is Interrail One Country Pass for 4 days for around £130. Can I purchase this in Switzerland in Geneva when I am there? Is there any limitations on my trips? It's too late to get one now in the UK as I travel on Monday.

Any advice / help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Yes, it is possible to get both Interrail and Swiss Pass (Swiss Travel System), but maybe it's better to take a look into SBB SuperSaver tickets. Since if you plan to make only 4 journeys and flexible +/- hour or two, then we're pretty sure that discounted SuperSaver tickets can beat £130. For instance for next Monday there are plenty Geneva to Bern SuperSaver tickets for 29,4 CHF, Bern to Interlaken on Tuesday can be done for as low as 16,2 CHF, Interlaken to Luzern on Wednesday for 12,4 CHF, Luzern to Geneva is 45,5 CHF etc. So at the end you can easily manage all your journeys for like 100 CHF (or roughly 70 GBP)   
It's too late to get one now in the UK as I travel on Monday.
In UK (at least in London for sure) it can also be bought at the counter, but again pass might not be the best option
