Are the prices for the train tickets for Zermatt - Gornegratt the same when purchase online and at the Zermatt station ie CHF38 return (with swiss travel rail pass)?

I am planning to take the train on the 22 December 2017. Would you suggest I purchase the tickets online ? Would the tickets be sold out during that period?

Also , I have a family card for the swiss rail pass where my 14 year old son will travel free. Do i include him in the child 6-16 years column if I decide to purchase the tickets online or I do not need to include him during the purchase?

Thanks

Hi Shareenpang,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! I found that the Gornergrat railway introduced prices based on the season. Must be pretty new I think. Indeed the return price is CHF 38 on your travel date with a Swiss Travel Pass. Whether an online purchase is cheaper or more expensive depends on the price offered by the various web shops, and whether they vary by the season as well. And whether they charge you in your home currency or not. You'll have to compare, but in general online and offline prices are about the same.

If you decide to order via www.swissrailways.com/ en/products/excursiong ornergrat, then do not order anything for your son. The Swiss Family Card covers him; no further tickets required. More purchase options are here: www.myswissalps.com/go rnergrat/packages

I have not heard of tickets selling out for Gornergrat yet. Your travel date is the day before the Christmas break starts, which is the busiest season of the year. Whether that Friday is busy as well I don't know. I don't expect you to have trouble getting on a train. Some waiting time perhaps, but not worse than that.

Have fun!
