I've been trying to figure out the transfer pass vs. just buying separate tickets. Here are the particulars:
Flying into Zurich and staying at a friends home in Zurich for 4 days. Planning to have day trips mostly. Don't know whether I can find a guided tour bus or just take a train. I will travel to Berne one day.
My 15 year old daughter is flying into Zurich, will stay/local travel a couple of nights and then we will both go to Imst. All travel with her will be together.
Are transfer tickets good to go all the way to Imst Austria? If the fare is the same (or even cheaper to Imst) - is there any advantage to the transfer ticket?
Basically, as I review the Swiss Rail site - it appears that there isn't much of a price advantage through the passes. Buying separate fares seems like the way to go although I don't know whether I can get the "free" ticket for my daughter at the ticket counter (I recall paying separately for my daughter on my last trip - but perhaps it was due to the fact that I just went to the ticket window and asked for an adult and a child tickets).
Any guidance will be appreciated.
