Train travel Switzerland to Austria etc

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are a family of 4 travelleing on December 19 from Interlaken to Innsbruck. What is the quickest way to get there? If I type in Interlaken Ost to Innsbruck I get an option via Bern an Zurich. I'm not sure how to check for other shorter or cheaper options.

Then if I type in "buy" I choose "half fare" for my husband and I, but what do I choose for the kids (both under 16) if we are getting the Half Fare and Family Card and they are supposed to travel for free? I don't know what some of the options mean. Do I choose junior or what?

Do we get half price travel for 2 adults and free (kids) up to the Swiss border then pay full for all 4 from the border to Innsbruck?

Please I need advice urgently.

Is it advisable to buy the tickets now already so that we don't end up waiting in long queues to buy tickets and to maybe have more options or cheaper tickets availiable than on the actual day?

Thank you

ALSO: I need advice on our other train routes too please. We are travelling from Innsbruck to Munich, Munich to Salzburg, Salzburg to Vienna and Vienna to Prague. What would the cheapest way be to do this? We are travelling between December 19 and January 8. We are two adults and two kids aged 10 and 15.

If we need to look at fares - do we have to use the starting or "from" destination to determine the operator eg. Austrian www.oebb (Innsbruck to Munich) etc?

I am so confused right now and we are leaving soon. Would appreciate any help - where I come from we use private cars because our public transport system is not of the same standard as in Europe.
