My wife and i will be landing at Zurich airport on 18 August at 17:00. We will take a train to Lucerne. We will already have 3 day Swiss Travel Passes. However, we won't be using them until a couple days later, so I plan to buy regular-fare tickets from Zurich airport to Lucerne. From what i can tell, there are direct trains every half hour. I don't know which exact train we will take. It will depend if we land on time and how long it takes to get through immigration and get our luggage. Since I am buying the Swiss Travel Pass and a couple other trains online, I am wondering if I should buy this ticket as well. I think (but i am not sure) that it will be good for any train we end up taking to Lucerne (on that day). I don't think the price changes for this type of train, so my main idea is that I can save a little time by not having to wait in line for a ticket and not having to figure out the ticket machine. The SBB website shows this ticket (adult, no discount) at CHF 25 each. Does this sound like a good idea or would it be better to just buy it at the airport station? Also, if any of my assumptions are incorrect, please let me know. Thanks.
