Over the past 90 days, the Swiss Franc has increased by 3.40% from 1.2606 on the 18th August to 1.3035 today. This means £750 will buy you Fr.32.18 more today than it would have three months ago. The highest Swiss Franc rate we recorded over this period was 1.3035 today and a low of 1.2313 on the 6th September. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Swiss Franc exchange rate history page.
Switzerland is a very cash-based society, and handing over a 500 CHF note just for a coffee will not raise so much as an eyebrow. In the Swiss cities it is hard to throw a stick and not hit a bank as you have the choice of the global banks such as UBS and Zurich as well as the local banks such as Kantonal. All of these will have ATM machines and many of them will be of the type where you can enter an atrium by swiping your card. You will normally pay 1-2.5% in commission if you use your UK Debit card in a Swiss ATM as well as receiving a fairly poor exchange rate.
If you intend on using Euros in Switzerland be prepared to pay a higher price as vendors will need to cover their costs in converting the currency to Swiss Francs, although if you are planning on travelling to another country in Europe then taking Euros could be an easier option. However, you could run the risk of not being able to use Euros everywhere in the country. Our advice will be to take the local currency Swiss Francs which will give you peace of mind and a better exchange rate for your money as some small ticket items such as newspapers or bottles of coke could cost double in Euros.
It is possible to pay in some shops using a chip and pin card but you really should not rely on it. There are two major supermarket chains in Switzerland: the state run Migro and Coop. Migro stores nearly always have ATM machines somewhere on the premises, but you will probably not be able to pay by card. Coop on the other hand generally does not have ATMs but are happier to accept card payments. Migro stores are graded and are awarded a number of 'M's. A one M store is little more than a convenience store whereas a three M is what we would call a superstore akin to a Tesco Extra.
Switzerland is an expensive destination to visit; easily more expensive than any of its neighbours. Our statistics show that the average Brit takes about £800 Swiss Francs with them. This is based upon orders placed between 1st of August and 31st October 2017.
