Switzerland money


#1

Hi travellers! because Switzerland uses CHF, should i get a seperate travel card or just use cash for everything?


#2

You should not need a separate card, your travel money card should be able to auto convert to Swiss currency when you use it.
Having some cash on hand is also handy however.


#3

Before Switzerland you will stop at a service station to get cash out, otherwise there will be atms wherever you’re staying in Switzerland


#4

so I’m able to take money out even if my card isn’t loaded with Swiss currency?


#5

Yes, most travel cards will automatically convert currency you have loaded into the country you are in, I have used a Commonwealth bank travel card at an atm in Switzerland with no problems in the past.
I have also used it also in many countries around the world with lots of different currencys where Mastercard is accepted with no problems.
