      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 ?

    • Information please

      Our family will be staying at Residence Panorama during December. We are not ski enthusiasts and will use the property as a basis to do sight seeing (with a rental vehicle) in the area (RCI exchange). Please advise if it is an easy drive from the nearest exit from the Autobahn to Residence Panorama. Please also advise if the parking area at Residence Panorama is close to the lobby as my husband has a back problem and cannot walk steep and long distances. Will you also please be so kind as to advise on the driving distance (and time) from Rome (Italy)

    • Train travel from Villars sur Ollon to Bex.....need help on planning.

      by madhavdivya Online Now Apr 22, 2011 at 1:54 AM

      Our family is reaching Villars on the 9th of May 2011, as part of our Europe tour package. Most of the tour is by coach and my son (6 years) is fond of trains and we have entire day of 9th of May to ourselves to explore. I wish to take my family from Villars sur Ollon to Bex by train and take the salt mine train ride and then return back to Villars by train.

      This being our first visit to Europe, I seek the guidance and how to make the trip a memorable one.

      How does the ticketting work? Can we buy a one time round ticket (Villars - Bex - Villars) for the entire family (4 persons) at Villars railway station ? Do we have various classes of travel - first class, second class etc., where the price of ticket of first class is more than that of second class. What is a swiss pass ? Which ticket would be economical ? What should be the cost of the ticket ? Do we have McDonald's at Bex railway station ?

      I would appreciate and thank for the replies and look forward to your responses.

      Transfer from Geneva airport to Villars Gryon

      by sirena2travel Online Now Feb 24, 2006 at 6:20 PM

      Hi, I'm going snowboarding next week to Villars Gryon. Flying into Geneva. Which is the quickest and cheapest way to get to the resort? There are only 3 of us so taxi transfer is a little expensive and I can't find any bus companies that operate that route.

      Also, any restaurant recommendations would be great if you know of any.
