Had some queries related to train travel and other public transport.
1. How does the companion ticket work? We are 9 people including 6 half fare card holders and 3 children covered in the Family Card travelling from Italy to Switzerland on May 21. I see this companion ticket offer is valid till the very same day. We have to book a ticket from Domodossola to Interlaken and I was wondering if I can opt for this and whether it has any impact on usage of Family Card. Suppose I opt for three of these companion tickets instead of 6 separate individual tickets, would I be still able to use Family Card for the children? Is there a further half fare card reduction on the companion ticket?
2. Two days later I plan to visit Pilatus during the afternoon while travelling from Lucerne. I believe the Zone 10 Lucerne ticket is also valid till Kriens. Since it would be a half day journey is it advisable to take the Golden/Silver round trip or just stick to bus to Kriens and then cable cars?
3. The one-day pass in Lucerne and Zurich, do they also offer free rides for accompanying children with the Family Card? What about the boats, cogwheel and cable cars? Is the Family Card valid in all these other modes of transport too?
