Hello Raghunath, and welcome to the forum. You can best consider a 4 day Swiss Saver Pass, which is the most convenient option as it allows you to travel for free on most routes, or a Swiss Half Fare Card which might be the most economical choice. Please visit the pages I linked to for detailed information, including downloadable maps showing the areas of validity (Titlis, Zurich and the Golden Pass are included). Lists of purchase options can be obtained too, by filling our your country of residence in the upper right corner of both pages.

I hope this gets you started!

Hi Raghunath. There's no saver discount for 2 or more people on Swiss Half Fare Cards. If you fill out your data in the upper right corner of the page I mentioned, including the amount of travelers, the right prices will appear automatically. I'd say a visit to Zurich on June 5 is fine, especially since you'll already be close to the airport.
