Hello

My wife and I leave the USA for Zurich on June 29. We plan to purchase the Swiss half fare ticket combi for our trip based on your recommendation. As time is getting close, would it be better to pick up tickets at the airport, or can we still have them delivered to our home address?

Also, we will travel from Wengen to Rome on July 9. Is there any advantage to purchase tickets ahead of time?

Thank you

Arno

Hi aplopez,

What's the exact name of the ticket or pass you want to buy? The name you mentioned doesn't exist. Is it the Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi perhaps? Or Swiss Half Fare Card?

Hi aplopez,

Ok, thanks for clarifying. It's convenient to buy online and there's enough time to do so before your departure. In this case you don't have a choice, as the Swiss Transfer Ticket can only be purchased before you reach Switzerland. For the Combi version, this is how you find purchase options and details like delivery times:

  1. Go to myswissalps.com/ swisstransferticket/ price;
  2. Select "Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi" in the "Rail product" box;
  3. Click "Show results".

As this particular product can't be printed at home yet, it will have to be shipped. Ordering through www.raileurope-world.com/pass/swiss-transfer-ticket-half-fare might be tricky because of their delivery time. I would recommend to order through the US site: www.raileurope.com/rai l-tickets-passes/swiss-transfer-ticket-with-half-fare-card-combi/index.html. Delivery takes 2-3 days.
