My family of four (two adults, two kids ((ages 9 and 11)) will be in Tasch, Switzerland over the holidays. We'll be entering from Milan and exiting to Paris. Regarding the entrance, we've already purchased the Milan to Visp train tickets (through Trinitalia), but still need to purchase the Visp to Tasch tickets. Regarding the exit, we've already purchased the Basel to Paris tickets (through loco2) , but still need to purchase the Tasch to Basel tickets. For the Swiss train tickets, would it make more sense to get a rail pass or purchase the tickets directly? They don't seem to be available yet. Apparently they will not be available until 60 days prior to travel. We plan to be in Tasch for three days and will be shuttling via train from Tasch to Zermatt every day. Does a rail pass cover this? We also plan to take the Gornergrat train - does a pass cover this? Thanks in advance for any advice!

Your travel plans don't fit all that well with any of the pass offers, as they will all cost a lot of money and give you validity that you might not use.

A more localised pass called the Adventure card might help:

Hi Brian,

As 1960man notes, the Adventure Card might be of benefit for you (covering a lot of trips around the Zermatt region): www.myswissalps.com/ad venturecard

If you think you'll leave the region on a day trip or two and also want coverage to Basel on your way out, have a look at the Swiss Travel Pass: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass

To know for sure which rail pass will save you the most money (once you've planned out your daily itinerary) look here for further help: www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass
