We are planning a trip to Switzerland. We will be traveling from Paris to Zermatt. Based on the spreadsheet, we've determined to that it's best to do the Half Fare card.
We already booked tickets for Paris to Lausanne. Then we will use the Swiss Half Fare to travel from Lausanne to Zermatt (transfer in Visp)
I have a few of questions:
- Should we buy our Zermatt train tickets ahead of time or just use the ticket machine once we arrive to Lausanne?
- How much time does it take to purchase tickets from the ticket machine? We'll have about 13 minutes between trains.
- We'll be arriving to Lausanne around lunch time. Is it worth a stop in Lausanne to have lunch and take a later train or should we just keep on to Zermatt? If so, do you have recommendations for lunch?
Thank you for your help! I've been doing lots of research for this trip but I couldn't really find clear answers for the above.
