It's far cheaper to go Airb&b and self cater . Its still expensive but worth it. If you can put up with all the Chinese tourists taking selfies.

When I went to Zurich, I took an empty water bottle and refilled it at the water fountain at every given opportunity (even though my bottle was half empty). Being that it came from the mountains, it tasted beautiful! I highly recommend this.

Great tip! Cocacola costs about 1.8 swissfranc per 1/2liter. Beer you can get for 0.5franc. Good deal, yea? The best of cheap beer is from landi called farmer. Dont go to denner to buy cheap beet.... its discusting. So better buy 3or 4 beer like this yoz can save a lot of money for lunch/food

From some of your clips, it looks like you were in the Jungfrau region - you can buy a Jungfrau pass or a Bernese Oberland pass for that region which covers most of the trains / cable cars / boats etc

Swiss Travel Pass is a better way to spare (unlimited travel for trains, city buses) and you get half price for mountain cable cars and cog-railways, even you have to pay only for the seat reservation for the most scenic routes (Glacier-Express)

Using an Apple computer and complaining about a ticket for 12 CHF to see one of the most beautiful valleys of Switzerland. It's a lifestyle :D The cheapest option is: own car, food supplies from abroad or local markets (Aldi, Lidl, Denner - low end), Migros / Coop restaurants and accommodation AirBnB.ch / BnB.ch.

All transport methods (except cable cars) cost the same. Fast, slow, bus, tram, ship, at a lot of places one can buy a zone ticket and can use any of the mentioned transport methods to arrive your destination.

My tip as a Swiss local: rent a little camper/van from Germany.. Drive down and sleep in the camper. You can find free spots to park around lakes, sometimes you pay 4 franks for a night. Do your cooking with a little gas cooker and the public BBQ pits. This way you are mobile, can see many places.
cattleNhay (16 days ago)
@Mudra Patel you gotta check the current prices! please buy some cheese and dried meats from local swiss farmers too...you will see signs by the roads: many sell apples/cherries/ carrots/ patatos and eggs too. Then find a nice spot on a lake or up on an alp and cook your own food= biggest money saver. On an alp pass called Gurnigel can park and sleep for free, awsome view down to Thun and lake.. I have a motorcycle video riding up there..there is a dude in a camper too.

Why not buy a swiss pass or flex pass for train, or rent a car if you are a group. Buying ticket every time is very expensive. Otherwise I don't think Switzerland is very expensive comparing the overall quality. Hotel, restaurant and supermakets are a little bit more expensive, but quality is more insured.

I'm Swiss living in Colorado and I find things here more expensive, then where I grew up in Switzerland.. all depends where you stay etc. Food in a restaurant isn't cheaper here in Co. Actually grocery stores in Switzerland are less expensive and better quality.

If you take the train for a long ride throgh Switzerland, go to any Community administration and get a Day Card for the Train. Which cost you 45-50 franks. But you have no limitations on the swiss train. Take any train you want, as long you want during a day. For my Local area as example: http://www.stadt-schaffhausen.ch/Tageskarten-Reservation.3646.0.html

Here are my tips for you guys: - your train ticket is including not only trains. Its valid also for trams, ships, bus an sometimes even cablecars. So if you buying a trainticket for the whole area of zurich, you can use the ship aswell on the lake. But always ask the staff first if your ticket is valid. In the touristic areas it may is not. -there are tickets for tourists including the whole public Transport in switzerland. Check it out before you go to switzerland. - flixbus for example brings you to other nearby cities in europe very cheap. - arround trainstations you can mostly find kebap places. Its cheaper to eat there than in a restaurant. Of course not for everyday, but it is an opion. The cheapest supermarkets are Denner, Aldi, Lidl and maybe Migros. Coop is expensive. Grap yourself food and beer and sit on a lake. 😊 - there are sooo many mountains you can have an amazing view from the top. Dont choose the very touristy ones, because they are expensive to get on top. - during summer you can swim in almost every lake. Its for free if you dont go to a specific swim area called "badi". The water is clean, dont worry. Even in the cities you can swim in lakes an rivers. -never use a taxi. They are the most expensive around the world. Use uber instead. -the cities are small and you can explore them by foot. - there are a lot of free activities during the summer. For example the street parade, caliente latin music festival and so on. Buy some drinks at the supermarket, go there and have a great time. Thats what we swiss people so. 😁

i still consider renting a car and self-driving in this late April in Switzerland. Anyone has suggestions or advice? I will stay in Switzerland for 8 days but half of trip (4 days) needs to be at Bern, then heading to Lake Geneva (1 day), Zermatt (1-2 day), and all the way to the destination - Zurich (1 day).

When I went to Switzerland I never seen water tape. Next time I must have to find out for refill.
Steve Morse (5 months ago)
Nice video One Girl.There is a new German shop called Aldi and another one called Denner (supermarket) which is super cheap by Swiss standards. Migros is a cheap super market but more expsensive than the preceding two. You can mostly order tap water in restaurants in French say 'eau du robinet'. If you want to drink from mountains make sure that there is a 'eau potable' sign because not all fountains are safe. Buy fresh and dried fruit and keep it to avoid small expensive toursit shops. Hitch hiking works well and is pretty safe in Switzerland. If you saty at a hôtel often give yu a free ticket for buses and trams whoch saves money. The cinemas are super expansive and eating out at night is predictably more expensive that at noon where you will find 'plat du jour' which are specials. The Swiss go dutch most of the time when eating out.

I’m going to Switzerland in February, I saved money on accomadation by getting an AirBnB just over the border in France (which cost less than half the price) then travelling into Basel by train for a £5 return. I can then travel to nearby places from Basel like Interlaken, Lucerne, and even into Germany (I’m going to Freiburg), and the trains will be covered by the money I saved on accomadation!

50chf for schnitzel, fries, orangshaft, pot of tea and strudel is not cheap. Restaurant Eiger Nordwall. 37chf for a burger fries and drink at Birg. My tip is go half board at a hotel that does packed lunches in the price. You may not get a choice for main course, but when you can pay 70-100chf in a restaurant on one course per person, the daily menu is good value. Book with a tour operator that does free transfers and a half price pass or free travel pass. Bottled water is expensive, so buy a couple and refill them with fresh spring water. It is possible to get free travel with a pre bought Swiss travel pass. If you stay in Interlaken your trip to Zurich airport can be via Bern, but you can also go via Luzern, you see a bit more of Switzerland for free. Jungfrau travel pass is very good money. You can travel by train from murren to Klein via lauterbrunnen and the take the the train to Grindelwald, gondalla to mannlichien, cable car to Wengan and back to Murren for nothing extra. If you want the Jungfrau it's about 80chf return from Klein. Or a trip to Brienz. Murren, lauterbrunnen, Interlaken, boat cruise to Brienz and return via Zentralbahn to Interlaken

@AnSonn xtv Try it for yourself, go to following link, enter Zurich HB and Bern Hauptbahnhof in the from and to spaces. You'll see several trains taking anywhere from an hour and two minutes up to an hour and 34 minutes, all prices are the same..!! https://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html

@upfreaks Switzerland must be among a minority of countries where distance decides the tariff.In most countries you pay a premium for speed .As also in the aviation sector where direct flights go at a premium.So there you are, a very freaky illogical rationale not shared by the majority .Also it doesn't make business sense.
