comment Where in India do I have the best chance of seeing wild tigers?
It seems a little bit like spam, but it also answers at least partially. Best would be if @alicejoseph elaborates on her/his relation to the pench nationalpark.

In Switzerland it is not mandatory, but if you have an accident in winter and your cars does not have winter tires, the insurance won't pay.

Cool, didn't know that. Seems to run really rarely, couldn't find it on sbb.ch. Maybe it's already not running anymore.

comment Best way to travel from France to Switzerland, Austria and Germany
I don't think that there is a direct TGV (or even any direct train) from Paris to Interlaken. You have to switch trains in Basel.

comment How can I buy an e-ticket for Netherlands train if I don't have a Dutch bank account?
Yes I know that I'll be fine, but even here in Switzerland, I always buy print-at-home tickets, since it is just more convenient imho.

That's a good point, but the OP is asking if it is possible and not if it is legal.

comment Why shouldn't I have an ATM PIN beginning with zero if I travel internationally?
The chart @JohnBensin has shown is probably one of the most counter-intuitive simple charts I've ever seen. Is there any good reason to use relative frequency there?

comment Are there any roads I'm not allowed to ride my bicycle on in Switzerland?
I thought the minimal speed limit for a Autobahn is 60 km/h and not 80. That's at least what I learned in driving school :)

comment Europe on tight Budget - shoe string
Hi Shaf IEe and welcome to Travel SE. Your question is quite vague and broad at the moment and also contains several subquestions. Could you elaborate a little bit more context and think about splitting the question up in multiple questions. Otherwise, we have to close this question.

comment What rail cards / passes / discounts should visitors to Switzerland be aware of
Both is not true. You can order your half tax online and even use a print at home temporary half tax immediately after paying. And even if you're here for a few days, it can already be wort it, it really depends on your travel plans.

comment How punctual are Swiss trains?
Yes, now I have to add another one. If you miss your last connection, also take to the train conductor. If it is their fault, they have to pay a taxi for you.
