I need help in buying the SIM card while in Switzerland. I does it work with 1G, 3G and 12G. I go to the website that MySwissAlps.com but don’t really understand. As 3 in my group would like to have 12G. I hope somehere can explain to me.

Hi Leila,

Do you stay for the 10 days you listed or for 13 days as indicated in the thread title? All SIM card details are on myswissalps.com/ simcard. Please let us know what's not clear for you. 3G refers to the connection speed, but I don't know what you mean by 12G.

The pass you need is the Swiss Travel Pass: myswissalps.com/ swisstravelpass. Swiss Pass is something different.

You can do excursions on your own, but if you like a tour that's fine of course. However, if you will only book guided tours a rail pass may not make sense as you'll be paying for transportation twice. A guided tour does make sense if you'd like to combine the Rhine Fall and Black Forest in one day as that's hard to do on your own by train. I will insert some tour links in your post so you can have a look.

Hi Arno

Sorry, my mistake typo error. Actually, we are from London and our next destination is Switzerland. For the 12G I saw that at the simly simcard website. You can choose 1G, 3G, 12G +€54. I dont quite understand.

Regards

Hi Leila,

I understand now. You're referring to "Gb" (the amount of data you can use), not "G" (the connection speed). For me, 1 Gb was plenty. I didn't even use half of it in more than two weeks. So why not buy a 1 Gb card, as you can add more data online should you need it. That's better than buying too much to begin with. Please see www.simlystore.com/en/ buy-prepaid-sim-card/switzerland-prepaid-data-sim-card.html.

Of course you can buy more than 1 Gb if your group thinks they will actually use that much data, e.g. if they will use one phone as a hotspot for the others.

Does this answer your question?
