Thanks for this very informative site.
I'd appreciate advice on our proposed itinerary for January 2018 as I'm not clear about the Swiss Transfer ticket rules.
Arrive Basel airport Day 1 (stay Basel city)
Train Basel to Zermatt Day 2
Train Zermatt to Zurich Day 10 (stay Zurich city)
Depart Zurich Airport Day 11 (pay for this train transfer separately)
The same as option 1 but train out of Basel on day 1
We are 2 adults and 3 children.
1. We'd prefer option 1 (because of flight times) if possible - is this OK on the transfer ticket?
2. Is it ok to return to Zurich the day before we leave or does it need to be on our departure day?
3. I believe that children travel free if we obtain a Swiss family card - how does this work with seat reservations (or is there always space and reservations unnecessary)?
Thanks for your help
