On another thread I am trying to get my head around the confusing Swiss Transfer ticket as the only place we are really visiting is Zermatt.
We need to get from Zurich to Vienna and have the following options:
Fly Niki is actually a bit cheaper, 54 Euros plus 6 Euros from the airport to the Vienna Westbanhof so 60 Euros all in and we get there around 10:30pm. If we do this option after arriving in Zurich by train from Zermatt we would also have some time to kill in Zurich.
The other option has us leaving Zermatt by train around 9am and getting another train from Zurich to Vienna that gets to the Vienna Westbanhof also around 10:30pm and costs 89 Euros.
So the Fly Niki option is 29 Euros per person cheaper but the one thing I am worried about is the stability of these low cost carriers. With the current economy, a lot of them are shutting down and I know the Swiss trains aren't in jeopardy. I have seen that some international trains have cheaper tickets bookable in advance but I can't find this option on the Swiss Rail website. Is 89 Euros the cheapest price to Vienna?
I would appreciate any advice from Swiss experts! Thanks!
