I will appreciate learning average price of Rail Station/Markets salad or sandwich. Do these and food marts accept credit cards? I am trying to ascertain approximate CHF I should be prepared to spend other than lodging and rail. I read about tipping not required but am unsure about recommended tipping amount for PostBus Driver and others helpful to this 77 year Grandmom who, because of recent health, is unable to hike or a walk long time.
Thanks for all suggestions/recommendations. Your site and helpful assistance is amazing.
