You can get off the train to break your trip at any time, as long as you complete the trip the same day. It's just that you should use the route as suggested by the timetable
, without detours. You can use the Swiss Transfer Ticket for Geneva Airport to Gimmelwald (leg 1). You can also use it for Leukerbad to Lugano Airport (leg 2), but not with a detour via Brontallo.
Yes, the lift to Gimmelwald and Mürren is included. Please see the downloadable map at the Swiss Transfer Ticket page
. The general rule is that you can reach towns/villages with the Swiss Transfer Ticket, but not mountain tops.
If you do a lot of traveling during your stay, it's usually more economical to purchase a pass for more days (so a 6-day Swiss Flexi Pass
instead of a 4-day pass for example) as opposed to buying an additional Swiss Transfer Ticket. That also eliminates the requirements such as taking direct routes and destinations that need to be airport or border stations.
From September 1, there's a 2-day Swiss Flexi Pass too. Perhaps that would make sense in your case. Here
are the details.
