Our trip to Switzerland – How much did we spend?

We spent seven weeks on our trip to Switzerland, leaving on 28th August and returning on 16th October.

In the course of our journey we:

  • Stayed in five different countries (France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland)
  • Stayed in 24 locations, including 5 campsites, 11 motorhome park ups with services and 10 park ups without services.
  • Travelled on 14 mountain lifts and gondolas
  • Enjoyed 15 bike rides, 17 walks/hikes and 5 via ferrata (Charmey, Moleson, Tour d’Ai, Mittaghorn, Allmenalp)
  • Had 3 laundry days

But the most important question to answer – how much did we spend in this notoriously expensive location:

  • Our total spend was £3137.80, just under £450 a week.
  • We spent an average of £17.72 a night on campsites, aires and other stopovers
  • We didn’t go out to eat much, spending £144.41 on our six lunches and one dinner
  • But we did eat well in the motorhome, spending £635.10 on groceries, just over £90 a week (this includes the stocking up we did before we left), roughly what we would spend at home.
  • We spent almost as much feeding Bertie with fuel. We didn’t count the kms travelled, but we spent £632.25
