Best train tickets for family of 4 travelling to SWI

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children ages 10 & 7) travelling to Switzerland in Dec 2015.

Please advise what the best tickets to buy for our itinerary will be:

  • We arrive at Zurich Airport and then staying in Zurich for 2 nights so need train from airport to city and then will make use of public transport for our stay in Zurich.
  • Travel to Davos by train, staying for 7 nights (we get a Davos KLOSTERS guest card which gives us free transport)
  • Travel by train back to Zurich Airport to fly to France.
Thank you!

Hello Lee,

Thanks for your question.

I would recommend you to purchase a Swiss Travel Pass which would be most ideal for your travel. The following are the benefits that you would receive with the pass.

Children below 16 years are free if accompanied by the at least one parent having a Swiss Pass. We issue a Swiss family card for children.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free within Switzerland on the STS (Swiss Travel System) network on trains, buses and boats. Also with a Swiss Pass you would get discounts on mountain excursions within Switzerland. These discounts can only be availed locally by showing your Swiss Pass to the ticketing office in Switzerland.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free on intercity trains within Switzerland.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

To purchase the pass click "Here".

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Anthony, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
