Getting to Zurich on a tight budget

Hello everyone, I am in Paris at the moment for a vacation but need to go to Zurich for an important thing on Sunday 8th May. I tried to reserve tickets on the TGV website but I was told that such had to be transacted at least 3days before. Can anyone recommend to me a cheap way to get to Zurich? Am also thinking of prolonging my stay there, since I've always wanted to visit the place. Many thanks!

Re: Getting to Zurich on a tight budget

Try www.bahn.de - one way is EUR108 online ticket.

Alternatively, try TGV station offices for TGV Artesia night train from Paris Bercy to Milan, and an Italian fare from Milan to Zurich.

Coach / bus possibly from Paris to Geneva:
