How far will your Swiss francs go?

Switzerland’s international renown as the gold standard in ski trips isn’t for nothing. Nor does it come cheap. With leading resorts like Verbier and Zermat as well as some of Europe’s highest peaks, it’s not surprising that snow enthusiasts the world over descend on (or ascend up) Switzerland every year.

Aside from the snow sports, Switzerland is also known for its private banking sector and world-leading private schools. All of this together does not a cheap country make.

However, it is possible to do a Swiss holiday without breaking the bank by saving where possible, if that’s your aim. Buying food and drink at local supermarkets and preparing it yourself, avoiding expenses like ski school if you don’t need them, taking your own equipment if you have it and choosing your accommodation carefully can all help stay on-piste where your budget’s concerned.

And of course, there’s more to Switzerland than skiing, Toblerones and cuckoo clocks. There are the beautiful cities of Geneva, Zurich, Bern, Basel, Lucerne, Lausanne…for a small country, Switzerland packs a punch with its notable towns.
