Did you read past the popup (image attached)?
The SIM offer says "Calls to all networks in Switzerland at 0.49/call (60 minutes). Unlimited surf in Switzerland for 1.99/day. International calls from 0.01/minute. 20. –/initial credit with a 10.– SIM card without new phone."
I read the offer to mean that you buy a SIM for CHF10 and your CHF20 initial credit gets you 10 days unlimited 4G internet. Anyways I have emailed them to confirm that I can buy on arrival.
I know it sounds too good to be true but I have seen comments on TripAdviser and elsewhere indicating it works well. This quote is from 2015 but the offer must still be current as it is still on their website . . . "I got a Salt Sim card for 10 CHF. With this card you get 2 CHF per day credit for 10 days (so total 20 CHF value) towards unlimited 4G use each day. I bought this from their shop in the basement of Lucerne train station. I thought this was an excellent value as the data speeds are quite good.The SIM card cost is 10 CHF. Each day automatically 2 CHF is added as credit towards data for up to 10 days. With that you get unlimited 4G data. I never used any hotel wi-fi with this offer. There is no limit on daily usage. Beyond the initial 10 CHF outlay, I never paid anything and got unlimited data for about 9 days."
I read their offer to mean that you buy a SIM for CHF10 and your CHF20 initial credit gets you 10 days unlimited 4G internet (assuming you don't use any of credit for voice/sms). Anyways I have emailed them to confirm that I can buy on arrival.
They claim to be good on trains www.salt.ch/en/test-results/
I will report back after my visit in May/June or perhaps Benedict will let us know if he gets there before me.
