Hello, thank you for this informative website and forum. I've reviewed many posts and haven't found one that really addresses my question. I will be traveling to Chamonix by train following my arrival at the Geneva airport and plan to purchase the train ticket on-line before my travel date. As I understand it, the Swiss Rail System does not issue tickets for a specific train departure, but the ticket can be used on any train departure on the day of my ticket. Is this true for the trains once I cross into France? I plan to take the train from the airport as soon as I can get through Immigration and Customs and retrieve my luggage. In the event of a flight delay, I want to make sure that I am not committed to specific train departures in France and can choose a later train if needed.
Thank you for any clarification you can provide!
