Hello kathleenmarie! I don't know the details of RailEurope's quote, and I'm not sure which sources you used for your calculations. The most reliable one is the Swiss timetable. I calculated several options based on the full-fare prices provided there, looking at the Swiss trips you listed. According to my calculations, a 5 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass would be the best solution. It provides 5 days of free traveling, to be used for trips 1, 2, 3, 6 (valid up from Domodossola) and 7. You don't need to buy any further tickets for these journeys; additional tickets are only required for the Italian (legs of your) trips.
Slightly more expensive, and less convenient in your case, is the Swiss Card. It would provide a free trip from Geneva Airport to Zermatt and from Lauterbrunnen to Geneva Airport, plus a 50% discount on your further trips in Switzerland. These would require you to buy additional discounted tickets. The Swiss Half Fare Card would be more expensive than both the Swiss Card and the Swiss Saver Flexi Pass.
I know it can be quite confusing, but I hope this helps.
