    I believe they are no longer available to buy from 1st Jan.  Not sure what’s replacing them if anything.

    Try Switzerland Travel they may know any replacement Certainly the Transfer Pass was withdrawn from 31 Dec..

    Logically it  could be a Flexipass for 2 journeys but I don't know.

    My flexi for 3 journeys cost me £216 , ie £72 each journey so that would suggest £144. I think that's dearer than the old Transfer Pass, though it had crept up in recent years.

    If you want an A to B return ticket go onto the SBB website,  https://www.sbb.ch/en/  and check the price. It is cheaper to buy a return ticket ZRH to Klosters (CHF106 return) than a Swiss Transfer ticket, & if you stay 7 nights in any Sunstar hotel in Switzerland the return ticket is CHF?46?. The benefit of the Swiss rail system is that there is usually a train every hour, regardless of flight landing time.

    Thanks for the responses thus far - I always thought the transfer ticket was too good to last (I do ZRH - Zermatt).  I saw Jeff at OTP (swisspass.com) is offering to help find creative alternatives - I shall explore......

    Hi, I got in touch with Switzerland Travel Centre to find out my best option as the Transfer ticket is no longer available. I got the following response:

    The best tickets for your journeys will be the Saver Day Passes these tickets are valid for the day of travel in each direction and you can travel on any train. These tickets are non-refundable and non-changeable. The cost of these will be:

    £114.00 2nd class return.

    On this rate we can extend your 5% discount as a Ski Club member. Please note on top of this we will have 1% booking fee.

    Zurich - Zermatt Train tickets. Saver Day Passes are quoted on the SBB website as available on this route for 104 CHF return. At 1.28 CHF to £1.00 works out at £81 return. Cut out the middle man.

    John Bourne: Intweresting, John. I always thought Sw Travel Centre were rock bottom to try to get tourists into Switz. Makes you think.
