On a similar note, and maybe it was just me who missed the SBB announcement
but the tried and tested Plan-und-Spar ticket system for trips to Germany etc. is no more.
The system used to be that if you knew which trains you were getting, you could buy your ticket up to three days in advance and save 25%, the only disadvantage being that you had to take the specified trains, no possibility to rebook etc.
Turns out that that system has been abolished, and instead there is just a limited number of cheaper tickets on each train. Once they've gone, everyone pays the standard fare. And considering the lady in the SBB train station advised me to book three
months in advance...well taking the train isn't always like booking a flight - I didn't know I would need to go to Germany three months ago...
Oh, and the SBB now charge CHF 5 for the privilege of serving you at their desks in Zurich HB (she advised me to book everything online to save the 5 francs in future).
All in all, not a good change from the SBB IMHO.
Sorry if this is old news...!
