Currency in Switzerland

Unlike most Schengen countries, Switzerland has its own currency, the Swiss Franc (CHF). While the Swiss Franc is accepted everywhere, you can also use the Euro in most of the places.

If you are on a Switzerland trip, it would be ideal for you to use francs only. However, if you passing through the country and will be staying for a night, you also have the option of using the Euro. On the other hand, you have to remember that most shops or stores will return the change in franc only, as it is the national currency of Switzerland and the exchange rate will vary. Ideally, it is a good idea to check with a store or hotel if they would accept Euros.

You can also use your credit, debit or a forex card as well, as they are widely accepted everywhere in the country. What you need to remember is that there will be additional bank charges upon usage.

Remember that foreign exchange rates keep fluctuating and it is always best to buy the currency when it is at a lower rate. Also, buy your currency through a proper channel or an agency like SOTC who will provide you with the transaction details for the same.
