Hello SwissAlps,

1. We are coming to Switzerland for 15 days. Can you please guide us how to purchase sim card? I have read that we can purchase sim card in airport Zurich. I would like to know if it gets activated immediately or will take time to get activated? How are the charges ?

2. Can we keep our luggage in railway stations for some time? if yes, What are the charges per hour? Do they keep big suitcase as well?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Rita,

I don't know about that network, but I think what matters is what your home provider can offer you while traveling in Switzerland. If it's not enough data or not a good price, then check the page that Maria mentioned.
