Good graphic - when you find a new word 'use it in a sentence'. We have the tour down under here in the Adelaide Hills. Pelotons everywhere! Distresses my husband who wants to ride his motorbike :-)
I looked at the traveller site and for my 22 days in Switzerland it was over $A10 a day. We will have wifi in all accommodation but at 1.99CHF a day for unlimited 4G data with SALT you could use that 24x7.
The SALT card is the best option for us. I checked their coverage map and its 4G just about everywhere including Wengen (and all the cable/train towns in the area) and Lugano.
Tariffs in Switzerland in CHF (one CHF = $A1.35)
Calls: 0.49/call (60 min. max)
Unlimited Surf: 1.99/day
Calls to 72 countries from 0.01/min (0.03 to Australia fixed 0.25 to mobiles)
SMS: 0.12/SMS inc Australia
Even if we had two phones and 2 cards - still a better option IMO. I am biased towards one phone and one iPad. Minimum devices, both use the same recharger. If husband goes wandering I can iMessage from the iPad and he can message me to ask what kind of wine I want him to bring back :-)
iPad can use phone's hot spot. I only take iPad because I can't read maps on my phone and I love downloading my photos at the end of the day and viewing them on the retina screen and putting them into folders. Makes sorting so much easier when we get home.
I use Safari on phone and iPad so the chrome idea was a rather dumb suggestion - dah!
Thanks for the adapter information ... I was going to ask about that! (In China most cafes have charging stations at every table!)
5 days in Lucerne and now I am alerted to the fact I only need 2nd class STP, the Tell Pass may be a viable option. Any suggestions for good accommodation in Lucerne?
