Hello we aretwo adults traveling from Zurich airport to Lucerne on 5 August spent 4 nights inLucerne and then on 9 August travel to Geneva Airport. We arethinking of buying a 4 day Tell Pass to visit the area around Lucerne. I know thispass does not cover the trip from Zurich airport and then to Geneva airport. Someone was suggesting buying a ticket fromZurich to Baar because then the Tell pass cover the rest of the trip toLucerne. Should we buy a transfer ticket plus a Tell Pass or it will be betterwith a Tell Pass and 2 point-to-point-tickets?Can I buy theTell Pass in Zurich airport or do I need to order it before I get there?Thank you foryour help!

Welcome to MySwissAlps, Ana2000!

A 4 day Tell Pass is a good choice if you focus on the Lucerne area. You can best buy additional regular tickets from Zurich to Baar (that's indeed where the Tell Pass validity starts; please refer to the Tell Pass validity overview) and from Lucerne to Geneva. That will be cheaper than a Swiss Transfer Ticket. By the way, if you don't have to rush when traveling to Geneva, you may consider to use the Golden Pass route via Interlaken, Spiez and Gstaad. It's more expensive than the regular route via Olten and Bern, but it's a beautiful ride.

You can buy your Tell Pass either online in advance or in Zurich. Purchase options are explained here.

Have a wonderful stay in Lucerne!
