Hi, thanks for replying =)
Zermatt - Milano Centrale
Via Brig Bahnhofplatz - Brig
Prices per person: 126.00 CHF
- Is the above correct?
- In this case should I purchase a "Swiss Half Fare Card" at 120.00 CHF?
Thanks again =)
The next day I will travel to Italy by train as suggested by Hambagahle.
Should I purchase a Swiss Travel Pass in this case?
If yes which travel pass suits me the most?
I'm so confused by the options of the travel passes available
It doesn't make sense to get a Swiss Travel Pass if you are (a) renting a car while here and (b) then spending time in Zermatt. And the STP or the HFC won't help all that much with the ticket Zermatt to Milan. The border station is Domodossola - so you have to pay full fare anyway from there to Milan.
2nd class fare per person Zermatt to Milan is 79frs. 1st class is 126frs.
Thanks again Hambagahle =)
Would you recommend me to purchase the train ticket online before arrival?
Probably a good idea. Italian train fares change. Ours do not. But the person who can give you the best advice on this is "Krist v" - I suggest you send him a private message... and ask him for his advice.
I see that train prices bought via SBB is cheaper than Trenitalia if travelling from Milano Central to Brig.
128 Euro as compared to 124CHF for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids (11+14)
Trenintalia gives 50% off to children up to 12, and SBB up to their 16th birthday. That could explain the difference.
One thing: If you book at sbb.ch, book all the way to your final destination in Switzerland. There is no need to buy a ticket Milan - Brig and then a separate ticket Brig - Zermatt for example. On http://www.sbb.ch you can buy Milan - Zermatt in one go.
Hi all, i am going to zermatt from milan next sat and return to milan on the next day.
may i know the most convenient/scenic route (e.g. via Brig, Visp, Domo or Domodossola)? and which is the cheapest way to book these tickets (book from SBB in one go or Trenitalia+SBB)? how long time should be allowed for transit?
and noting that there is different stations for Brig (e.g. Brig, Biela) and Zermatt (e.g. Zermatt GGB), should i just select "Brig" and "Zermatt" when booking the tickets?
Thanks a lot in advance!
The SBB planner knows every public transit stop in Switzerland so can plan to any of them. However the main railway station is (apart from a few exceptions) always just called after the town. You are going to Zermatt, and that is what you should buy a ticket for.
