My husband and I are travelling with our 15year old. Aiming to catch a bus then train from Basel airport to Engelberg. I was going to buy a Transfer ticket online with a Swiss Family card so we would only need to pay for the two adults. However, I have just noticed that the price for a normal return ticket seems to come to less that the transfer ticket price, even when our daughter has to pay half fare.
Can someone advise me please if there are any catches with this, such as you are supposed to catch a particular train? Would I need to buy any sort of pass for my daughter anyway or will she automatically pay half price on production of proof of age? Or is there a different pass for her that may work out cheaper? Are the prices at the station the same as online? Also I haven't got this far in the process yet, but can I get these normal returns online?
