>> planning for a 5 day trip from Zurich to Interlaken (July 3 - 4 with side trip to Jungfrau) to Zermatt (July 5 - 6) and on July 7th Glacier Express from Zermatt to Chur with transfer to get back to Zurich. Two couples over 65 yrs of age traveling and we do not want to handle luggage. Can anyone suggest same day baggage service to transport bags from hotel to hotel?
If you want same-day door-to-door luggage transport it is going to cost you a lot of money, i.e. for each transfer a minimum of CHF 82 (CHF 70 flat rate for shipping, plus CHF 12 for each piece of luggage shipped). Hopefully the CHF 70 flat rate would apply to your group as a whole, as all luggage will be shipped to and from the same addresses, but you would need to check that.
The service is available in limited locations, but of the locations you mentioned (Zürich, Interlaken and Zermatt), Zermatt is the only location where this service is not provided.
For Zermatt, you could use the station-to-station Express Luggage service instead. That will cost a minimum of CHF 42 (CHF 30 flat rate for shipping, plus CHF 12 for each piece of luggage).
Although Zermatt is included on the list of stations offering Express Luggage Service, it does not appear in the calculator used to determine luggage deposit and collection times, so you might want to enquire further about that.

As Zermatt is car-free, most hotels provide a shuttle service to transport guests and their luggage between the station and the hotel on days of arrival and departure (but check before booking). You would have to collect your luggage at Zermatt station by 19:00 on your day of arrival in Zermatt.
