Point to Point or Super Saver

SOLVED

Hello

 

I will be visiting Switzerland next year and wish to travel from Zurich Airport to Zermatt.

I would appreciate clarification on the difference between the Saver Day Pass and Point to Point tickets please.  

The website says Point to Point - valid for chosen route until 5am the next day

Saver Day Pass - valid for all public trasport in GA travelcard area of validity until 5am the next day.

Saver Day Pass  doens't say anything about having to get a specific train/connection/route.  Only no refunds.

Saver Day Pass is significantly cheaper - is the only difference that there is no refund?

Thank you

 

Anna

Hello @Anna12 

Thank you very much for your question. 

A point to point ticket is a ticket valid only on the selected route, from A to B. You can take any train on this route and make stops in between, as long as you resume and complete the journey in the one direction (in this case from Zürich Airport to Zermatt) by the end of the validity day (5am on the following day). 

A Saver Day Pass is a day ticket valid everywhere in Switzerland for a whole day (until 5am on the follwing day). This means you could go form Zürich Airport to Zermatt taking any route, because on that validity date you have a pass for the whole country (GA area). If on your wish date this is the cheaper option, I suggest you buy this offer. 

Please note, there are also Saver tickets: those are like point to point tikcets (fix route) and also fix in time, it means, if you chose the connection at 10 am, you cannot get an earlier or a later train. 
This porobabily is the least expensive option, but I would not recommend it when arriving by plane (because teh landing time can change).

Both Saver day passes and saver tickets are non refundable. 

I wish you a good stay in Switzerland. 

Greetings
