A group of us are arriving in Zurich in the morning from the US on different flights within a few hours of each other. We want to travel together by train from Zurich Airport to Lucerne for a few days. While in Lucerne we want to travel by train to Mt. Pilatus and then the next day to Basel to catch a river cruise. I have a few questions:
Can you recommend an easy "spot" to meet each other either in the airport or the train station?
When purchasing train tickets, if we use the machines and pay with credit cards, do we need a four digit pin in order to complete the purchase? OR If we use ATM's to get cash with our credit card, do we need a four digit code for our credit card.
Should we purchase a point to point train ticket or are their any rail passes we could use? We are arriving in Zurich on Friday and staying in Lucerne until Sunday
