Aside from airfares, accommodation is likely to take up the largest chunk of your vacation budget so choosing where to stay in Switzerland can be an important part of your trip planning.
I must admit, I spend hours and hours researching where I’m going to stay when I visit Switzerland. I’m quite particular when it comes to accommodation, and even though Switzerland is an expensive destination to visit, I still don’t like to compromise when it comes to the amenities, location and standard of where I’m staying.
Fortunately, there are plenty of different styles of accommodation in Switzerland to choose from. As well as the go-to options of hotels and vacation rentals, there are also hostels, B&Bs, camping options and some quite unique accommodation experiences, too.
I’ll cover all these options – and some important things to consider when you’re choosing where to stay – in this episode of the podcast.
