St Moritz Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan

  Money & Costs in St Moritz, Switz.
St Moritz is moderate to high in price as European travel goes, but the value-for-money is exceptionally high—and there are budget options.


Swiss francs (CHF, SF, SFr, FS) are the currency in St Moritz, not Euros.

Although many businesses may accept payment in Euros, you'll be given change in Swiss francs.

Coins are of 5, 10 and 20 centimes, 1/2 franc (CHF 0.50), CHF1, 2 and 5.

Bills/notes are of CHF 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 1000.

But who uses cash anyway? Most purchases will be by credit card, so you needn't worry about exchanging that much cash.

Despite Switzerland's inaccurate reputation as an expensive destination, prices in St Moritz are actually moderate for a high-quality European vacation—especially when you consider value-for-money.

Think about it: if a CHF 10 meal is not very good, it's expensive, because you're not getting good value for your money. If a CHF 50 meal is superb, it's worth every penny.
