Thanks for your advice..
We are visiting CERN in Geneva, so hence the stop off there.
Just doing some quick sums at full price, I see the following (per person each):-
Day 1 - Zurich to Geneva - 44 CHF
Day 2 - Geneva to Zermatt - 49 CHF
Day 3 - (Zermatt) - Mattahorn Cable Car (Glacier Palace etc...) 136 CHF
Day 4 - Zermatt to St. Moritz (Glacier Express) 153 CHF
Day 5 - St Moritz to Paris (via Zurich) 281 CHF
The 2nd Class half fare pass is 119 CHF (plus half the above 332 CHF) = 451 CHF total
The 2nd Class 4 day Swiss Travel Pass Flex is 309 CHF (plus 68 CHF for Mattahorn Cable Car) = 377 CHF total, so seems much better value.
Even though actual train travel will only be on day 1,2, 4 & 5 (4 days), can the 2nd Class 4 day Swiss Travel Pass Flex be used on day 3 for the Mattahorn Cable Car (or would this be counted as a 5th day)?
Also , can the 2nd Class 4 day Swiss Travel Pass Flex be used to travel to Paris (or is there an additional cost from Zurich to Paris as this is outside Switzerland)? If so, is there a more economical travel pass to suit this travel schedule?
