>> Bernina Express - Tirano to Chur - and the Glacier Express - Chur to Zermatt - we would like to travel on the regional trains on these routes. ... will be purchasing a half fare card. we will also be travelling from Zermatt to Luzerne and then onto the Zurich airport. Is it necessary to purchase our tickets for any of these trips in advance or can we do so at a train station on the day. Our Travel dates are 24th September to 28th September
In most cases, there is no real advantage to buying your tickets ahead of time, as tickets do not sell out. Once you have bought a ticket, it is valid only for that day. Tickets bought online are only refundable in specific exceptional cases.
Before buying tickets online in advance, you might find it helpful to read about the conditions attached to online purchases from the SBB:
