Hi Nbunim,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! The first card you are referring to is the Swiss Half Fare Card: www.myswissalps.com/sw isshalffarecard.

Another card you may have heard about is the Swiss Transfer Ticket: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstransferticket. But you don't need that if you have a Swiss Half Fare Card. You'd better buy a regular point to point ticket with a 50% discount: www.myswissalps.com/tr aintickets/switzerland halffare.

It is more convenient to buy your Swiss Half Fare Card online and print it at home. That way you can save time as you can skip the staffed ticket office and get your ticket quickly from the machine, or online. Also you can store the PDF file that you'll receive, so you have a backup in case you lose the card. Please find purchase options here: www.myswissalps.com/sw isshalffarecard/price.

'Zurich Border' to Zermatt would be the Swiss Transfer Ticket
