We will be travelling in Switzerland for 9 days from 5 Oct to 13 Oct and will be getting the 8 day Swiss Pass to cover our trip for the first 8 days.

On the last day, we just intend to sight-see around Zurich - mainly transportation from Crowne Plaza Zurich to Old Town and walk around and have lunch then proceed to the Airport.

Is it more worthwhile to buy individual ticket or should we get a Day pass? And for day pass, does it mean we will need one that cover 2 zones? I tried to understand the zone network map but it is a little confusing. I understand Zurich airport is a different zone from HB. But it also says Zone 110 is to be counted double where prices are calculated (www.zvv.ch/zvv/en/time table/zonenplan.html). Does it mean it will be 3 zones then?

Can anyone advise on what should we do?

Hi Leqi102,

you can purchase a Zurich Card that allows free public transport throughout the city. You can reach the airport by direct trains, see more details at www.myswissalps.com/zu rich/travel.

Although if you are just going to the old town and walk there then to the airport from the main station, probably a single ticket for the tram + train ticket to the Airport is the cheapest option.
