There are definitely interesting things to do and fine places to visit in Switzerland. But your travel budget may be restrictively lean. Meanwhile, there are travel tickets, hubs and accommodations, and a lot more bills to pick. If your budget isn't very permissive, your vacation may leave more holes in your pocket. To avoid that, the section of the Switzerland travel guide deals with how to travel Switzerland on a strict budget.
1. Do Your Diligence
Make thorough research here. Reading this Switzerland travel guide is a part of it. Determine what and what are available in cities you plan on visiting and the cost at a particular time. Then, find out the cheapest means and time to visit. Know as much as can about foods, accommodations, and tickets.
2. Use Free Public Transport
Your research will show you that there are free public transports in some cities at certain times. Take advantage of these and keep some part of your money in your wallet. For instance, there is such provision in Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, and Lucerne, among others. There are accommodations that provide tickets that are valid for a number of days. Other hotels include an all-inclusive ticket for tourists.
3. Be Travel Pass Smart
Before you buy a travel pass, determine if it’s really worth your trip. Knowing your options will help out here if you want to get the value for your spending. If your itinerary won't put you on the rail every other day, you may need only a Supersaver or Half Fare Card. But if you need any of Swiss Travel Pass, Eurail, or Interrail Pass, booking online will save you a lot.
4. Use Your Connections
Don't you have friends or acquaintances somewhere in Switzerland? Your financial pressure would be eased if you stay with any of these during your visit. You may discover that it will be a lot cheaper to travel everywhere from your free accommodation? After all, the whole of Switzerland is not bigger than a day's journey. Remember to be a nice guest anyway.
5. Take Charge of Your Affairs
While you can do with some help from go-betweens, you can as well do without it if you desperately take matters in your own hand. If you’re on a strict budget, why would you book a tour when there is public transport to everywhere, sometimes for free? Almost everywhere is accessible by bus, flight, train, or boat. Again, research is your friend here.
6. Grab a Bike
Renting a bike is definitely cheaper than flight, train, and even bus. And you can go anywhere on a bike even if you have to take a longer route than you would if you had used a boat. In fact, some cities have a free bike ride for a few hours, a day, or even longer. All you need is your ID and a deposit. If you're going for a treat in Bern, Geneva, Neuchâtel, Zug, or Zurich, you can find a free bike.
7. Go for Old Bread
Yesterday’s bread has lost some economic value, but not some nutrition. Buy this and take advantage of the concept known as Ässbar that has gained ground in Switzerland. To curb food waste, whatever pastries, rolls, sandwiches, and sausage rolls that bakeries can’t sell in a day go for these guys who pay as little as half the price the next day.
8. Enjoy Free Activities
There are free activities such as the free walking tour of different cities across the country, greeting bears, visiting some wildlife parks, checking out free museums and old churches, and a lot more.
