Hi all! First off, here is my itinerary:

11/19 arrive Geneva, take EasyBus to Chamonix

11/21 Chamonx to Zermatt by train (this is where i need help)

11/24 Zermatt to Lauterbrunnen by train

11/25 Lauterbrunnen to Munich by train

We also hope to visit Gornergrat and Schilthorn as day trips if the weather cooperates.

Ive researched train tickets and passes extensively and decided on the half fare card.

I can't seem to find much info on the Chamonix - Zermatt portion. Is the half fare card valid? What is the cost of the ticket from Chamonix to Martigny?

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Hi msdama,

The Swiss Half Fare Card map shows where it's valid. In your case it's from the border (Le Châtelard-Frontière) to Zermatt. That portion will cost you CHF 40 one way (normally CHF 80). I don't know the price of the French portion but I don't think it's that much.

You can print the Swiss Half Fare Card at home through en. It takes 1 to 3 business days to receive it through e-mail.
