      Exchanging money at Zurich airport

      Zürich Jan 30, 2017 at 8:16 AM

      I ve tried to look up the exchange rates but all the money exchangers at the Zurich airport website link to their parent company . Is it better to take swiss francs from Canada or exchange the money upon arrival at Zurich ? I will need some cash rightaway at the airport but other than that , I can wait until I get into the city and try and get a better rate to get cash for hotel and train tix .
      Is there somewhere to find out the ongoing exchange rates ?

    • Swiss Travel Pass Query

      Switzerland Jan 24, 2017 at 11:01 PM

      I will be arriving to Zurich and taking the train to Lucerne after arrival. I will be in Lucerne for about a week, including day trips. From Lucerne I will be travelling to Colmar in France.

      My question is - if I buy an 8 day Swiss Pass does it include the travel from Zurich to Lucerne, all the day trips from Lucerne and the Swiss train travel part on the way to Colmar (till Basel)? I'm just asking because i understand that not all routes are included in the pass and I don't want any surprises.

      Thank you

      International VT meeting on 15. August 2007 in wonderful Sion

      by HORSCHECK Online Now Aug 8, 2007 at 1:11 PM

      Hello VT members and friends,

      VT member yumyum (CH) and me (HORSCHECK, D) are exploring the Swiss Canton du Valais next week (12.08.-19.08.).

      Among other things we are planning a little VT meeting in wonderful Sion with the most famous VT member from that region (Tripack).

      At this stage the schedule for the meeting is defined like this:

      DATE AND TIME:
      15.08.2007 - 16:00 h

      MEETING PLACE:
      Giorgio cafe at the Rempart Place (300m from Hôtel Elite)

      After exchangig some travel stories including the latest VT gossip, a little walk around the town and a fabulous dinner, we might head of to the "Sion in Lights" event which starts around 22:15 h.


      [ALL DATA IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE]

      There are already rumours that another famous VT member from the US is in the region at almost the same time. So it would be great if we could meet all together.

      Any other member who is interested to come please bookmark this thraed as all changes to the plan will be posted here.

      Thank you.

      HORSCHECK :o)

    • What trains from Sion to Venice

      by egrgdjg Online Now Dec 10, 2005 at 9:05 PM

      I am on the Euro rail website and I can't get the time of the trains from Sion to Venice. I know you have to break down your trip to get it, but I am struggling.

      If anyone knows what routes or the break downs, please let me know!

    • Driving over the Simplon Pass

      by giller Online Now Aug 2, 2003 at 7:03 AM

      Visiting Valais 19th Aug. and want to visit an old friend who lives in cugnasco, a little worried about driving over the Simplon Pass as I'm not used to driving over mountain roads and also not used to driving on the left. Is it a dangerous route and did I see a train route that brings cars some of the way, also would that be very expensive. A little worried. Would appriciate honest opinions.
