hi ,

I'm Planning 4 days trip for Switzerland , arrived at Zurich airport at January 2,2018 and we direct go to Zermatt using Swiss Transffer Ticket. The next day we plan go to St. Moritz from Zermatt ( Back to Zermatt at nite), my question is: should we buy another ticket as Glacier express to st moritz or Swiss Transfer Ticket already cover it all? and is that possibble for us to 1 day trip from Zermat to St. Moritz and back to Zermatt again?coz i already book my room for 4 day at Zermatt. thank you .

Hi jilee and Welcome to MySwissAlps Forum,

Have you read about Swiss Transfer Ticket here isstransferticket ? It won't cover your trip from Zermatt to St Moritz. You can buy tickets/reservations for Glacier Express here: acierexpress/tickets

But . . . . . taking Glacier Express from Zermatt to St Moritz and getting back same day is going to be a challenge unless you are happy to arrive back at Zermatt just before midnight. Have you checked the Swiss Railway timetable? metable

Hi Jileee,

I think you're better off with a 4-day Swiss Travel Pass. It covers your transfers from the airport to Zermatt and back, and also the Glacier Express (apart from the seat reservations) and the ride back to Zermatt.
