Thanks for the quick reply! Some follow-up questions:
Based on our itinerary, it might be more worthwhile to get the Half Fare Card instead. Will I be able to use it for the Swiss leg for both Montreux to Stresa and Como to Zurich? On the SBB website, the only option for Half Fare Card fare reduction is 1/2/3-year Half Fare Card but I will be getting a 1-month Half Fare Card.
If discounts are available for Half Fare Card, should I buy only the Swiss leg online and the Italian leg from the train station?
Is there any difference between buying these cross-border tickets on SBB or Trenitalia?
Would you recommend buying in advance tickets for cross-border tickets only or for domestic trips in Switzerland and Italy as well? It seems that domestic tickets are less busy and can generally be purchased on the spot?
