Well, you basically have 3 options:
- Swiss Transfer Ticket + regular priced tickets to the peaks
- Swiss Card + discounted tickets to the peaks
- Swiss Transfer Ticket + the Zermatt Peak pass for free rides to the peaks
Which one is most economical depends on your travel plans. If you know or can estimate your travels, you can calculate the best option. In general I would say that option 2 or 3 is the best. Option 1 would only be cheaper if you visit one peak only, which is not likely as you stay for a week. The advantage of option 2 is that it includes discounts throughout Switzerland, so you could do a discounted day trip outside of Zermatt, e.g. to the Aletsch glacier. That's a good option if the weather isn't great in Zermatt or if you just want to see something else.
By the way, hotel suggestions for Zermatt are listed here.
