Hi charlotte5,

Packing your own lunch is a good idea. Prices differ. For example, it matters whether you're able to buy somewhat larger quantities and store them in your hotel or holiday apartment, or whether you have to buy fresh products each day. For example, you could get a whole bread and cut slices for each day. And if you have a fridge, you can buy butter and packages of meat and cheese. This will be much cheaper than buying fresh bread rolls or pre-packaged sandwiches. Fresh juices are quite expensive. Alternatively, you can fill up your own bottle with water and maybe some syrup.

The store is of importance too; Denner and Lidl are relatively economical, whereas Coop and Migros are a bit more expensive. These too offer budget brands though.

Depending on the choices you make, a budget between CHF 5,- and CHF 15,- per person per day is realistic. Our budget page may offer some further tips.
