Train travel from zermatt to montreux

We bought the 4 Days Swiss Travel Pass from Sun 23rd Sept to Wed 26th Sept 2018.

After overnight stay in Zermatt on Tue 25th 2018 , the next morning of Wed 26th Sept.we intend to take the train to Gornegrat for sightseeing Matterhorn. After sightseeing, we come back to Zermatt to check out of our hotel.

Which train do we use to travel from Zermatt to Montreux ( using our Swiss Travel Pass ) ?

Thanking you for your advice and suggestions !

Warmest Regards.

Jimmy Ong

Thanks Krist V for the www.sbb.ch/en website ! After selecting my destination from Zermatt to Montreux, if we are holding a 4 Days Swiss Travel Pass, do we get a discount on this sector ?

At the moment I can only see the provision for selecting the boxes for Half Fare, Junior Travel Card, Grandchildren's Card & Children Co-travelcard !

Could I tick the Half Fare box ?

Swiss Travel Pass is the ticket when traveling where the pass is valid - such as trains Zermatt to Montreux. Nothing else needed (no ticket), just an official ID with photo as the pass is personal.

For validity map see https:/…uebersichtskarte-sts.pdf - if not already aware, the pass is also valid for postal bus services, most lake boats, many city public transport.

Hi jm2cents ..... Thanks for your updates on Swiss Travel Card.

I am trying to book my train ticket from Zermatt to Montreux on Wed 26th Sept 2018 online and there is a section where we have to tick this compulsory box as mentioned in my above reply to Krist V .

There is no box for Swiss Travel Pass 4 Days Consecutive Travel !

So which box do I tick to get this discount ?

The STPass IS your ticket. No booking required. Just turn up and get on the train at the time you wish to travel and produce the pass and your ID when requested to do so.

Why do you try to "book" anything if you already have the STP?

You do not need to ‘book’ the BEX either. What you will need is a seat reservation to sit in the panoramic coaches.
