Was going to do that, yep. Any idea how long before a journey the tickets go live online, Dave? Cheers

Two months, it seems.

There are tricksy ways to book tickets with Deutsche Bahn as well six months. For instance, you can book from a place called Singen to Geneva for €34.90 with DB, and just not use the Singen to Zurich bit. However, that is liable to be more expensive, so I wouldn't bother.

If you are coming in from Austria or Germany, you can and should book it six months out. If you are only looking for a domestic Swiss train, chances are it'll make sense to wait until 2 months out.

Are those German tickets fixed to a service or can you grab any train?

Fixed to a particular service, unless you pay the full price, which is madly expensive. The cheaper Austrian ones are train specific too, as are the cheap Swiss ones.

There are no cheap tickets that aren't train specific, tbh. If you are booking a train to get coming off a flight, add a few hours to be safe, or you'll be paying a fortune if you miss the one booked.

Pegasus from Tbilisi to Istanbul to Geneva on Monday for about €125. Early start but not expensive. Pegasus also fly Istanbul to Basel, Zurich, Lyon, Paris and Milan, and you can get direct to Geneva from all of them for not very much, if you have an advance train ticket. Tbilisi to any of those places with Pegasus is a similar sort of price.

In terms of flights avoiding the sh*te 4:30am style Pegasus flights though, there aren't many good options left. The one I would go for would be this one with Ukraine International to Milan Bergamo via Kiev:

TBS 16:35 - 18:35 KBP 20:35 - 22:15 BGY

It is €174 to Bergamo at the minute, leaving Kiev Monday afternoon. From Bergamo to Milano Central is not much (like a fiver for the Terravision bus booked online in advance) and the train should be €40 to Geneva. A night in Milan will probably cost a fair bit less than a night in Geneva.

Yeah im on that route and the two sons want to go now too, but was almost €300 each, I paid €50' they will be travelling solo to Switzerland now. I reckon that wizz flight might drop in price again though.

There’s a few Tbilisi to Basel routes starting at 150€ on the 14th. Arriving into Basel in the afternoon the day before game so plenty of time to get to Geneva or wherever

Flying Tblisi to Basel, early start Monday morning but it's working out at €118 which aint bad. 

Stopover in Istanbul but into Basel at a reasonable hour. 


We're on the one road!
