Money Transfer within Switzerland

Hi,
What is teh cheapest way to transfer ~50k CHF from one Swiss bank account to another? (e.g. from UBS to PostFinance)

Can it be done free of charge? What if both accounts belong to the same person?

It's free of charge via e-banking.

Re: Money Transfer within Switzerland

Option 1:
Take the money out as cash, then deposit it as cash.
No cost.

Option 2:
Log into your UBS online account, make the transfer.
Drink one less beer after work because of how much money you lost for the transfer .
Negligible cost.


cheers

Re: Money Transfer within Switzerland

Note that UBS charges 1% if you go over their transfer limit, which might be high but TIS.
