I was checking the ticket prices between Gersau, Schiffstation and Luzern for 22/4/2016 and I found the full priced tickets are CHF 15.80 (total for 2 people = CHF 31.60).

But then there is one more option of City-City ticket which is costing CHF 47.60 for two people. What is the difference between the two tickets. Should I go for the individual tickets only which will cost me less for two of us ?

Also, I would probably book this ticket online 2 days prior to the journey date i.e. on 20/4/2016, I hope the prices for full fare tickets don't change neither their availability ?

Hi sskundu.

Perhaps you used the prices that show in the SBB timetable?

Those are half - fare prices, because almost all Swiss have some form of half fare card.

Hi sskundu,

Full priced single tickets are CHF 15.80 per person. A City-City ticket includes public transport within the town of departure and arrival. You don't need that. A City-ticket includes public transport within the town of arrival (Luzern). Whether you need that depends on your plans.

HI Annika,

My itinerary on 22/4 is as below:

1. Gersau, Schiffstation to Küssnacht am Rigi, Bahnhof (by bus ; only option)

2. Küssnacht am Rigi, Bahnhof to Luzern (train)

3.Luzern to Milan (international train ; separate tickets purchased)

The full ticket fare of CHF 15.80 is for the entire leg of Gersau to Luzern via Küssnacht am Rigi. Then what additional would a City-City ticket or City-ticket include ?

Hi sskundu,

Please see my previous post: it includes transport within town. But you don't need that for your plans.
