Whenever I go somewhere, I mostly use public transit and on very rare occasions, have I rented a car to travel. I am planning a trip to Switzerland next year, however, I am undecided between renting a car or using local trains for travel within the country. Given the beautiful terrain, what would be the best mode of transit to enjoy all that Switzerland has to offer?

Both of these transit modes are entirely dependent on what you like. Let’s say, if you are a photographer and you would want to stop at every point where you find a beautiful view for some photographs, it is recommended that you use a car. On the other hand, if you have planned out all your destinations, it would be better to use the local trains to reach there. Note that traveling by train is generally faster than traveling by car because Switzerland has inter-city railway lines with high-speed trains, and you could save a substantial amount of time. Moreover, the trains are, in itself, a part of the Switzerland experience. So, if you have a time constraint or you are on a tight budget, the train would prove to be the fastest and most efficient mode of travel in all of Switzerland.
