Thanks for the extra information. Yes, I also assume you're eligible for Interrail. Your daughter would travel along for free with both passes. As for the adults: Interrail is a bit cheaper than a Swiss Pass. Interrail mainly covers trains, and a discount on a limited number of private railways/mountain transport services. The Swiss Pass covers trains, buses, city transport, 50% discounts on most mountain transport, and free museum entrance. Some examples: The Gornergrat railway from Zermatt is 25% discounted with Interrail, 50% discounted with a Swiss Pass. The train from Visp to Zermatt you'll use is 25% discounted with Interrail and free with a Swiss Pass. The Rigi railways near Lucerne are 50% discounted with Interrail and free with a Swiss Pass.
The total difference of about EUR 70 for the passes would easily be worth it if you plan to take cable cars/trains (like the above examples) that are not/less covered by Interrail, as standard tickets are quite expensive. You can download a detailed network map of what's covered from the Swiss Pass page. You can get the pass here.
