Where can I buy an inflatable guestbed/air mattress in lausanne area? Maybe online?

Hi there

I'm looking for a large ( approx 1,50x2,00m, height 40cm) inflatable Guestbett. Any ideas where I can purchase it in the Lausanne area? I was looking for it as well online but the online shops are all based outside Switzerland and the shipping fees & custom tax on top are crazy.

Thanks and best regards
Kirabi

The same popped into my head too - and certainly worth a look.
The only thing with Aldi, though, is that a lot of their non-food items are not regularly stocked ones - they appear in their offer mag. and are there whilst stocks last and then fininished. I don't know if it is the case with the mattress, though.

Other possible places to try (if in your area) are Otto's, Jumbo, Coop Bau & Hobby (Bati centre), Dept. (Manor type) store.

It shouldn't be too hard to find one without having to order online and pay shipping.

I got one from Athleticum in Zurich, but they also have shops in Lausanne. I got the double one for CHF 35.90. I have no complaints, though I wish I'd bought the bigger one with free pump included, blowing it up takes a bit of effort.

I agree, Aldi would be a good bet....

Alternatively my favourite shopping website (www.play.com) opened an online camping and outdoors store this week! They have a double and single air mattress for sale..

They ship for free to Switzerland - and if you order multiple items ship them all individually so I have never had problems with import tax.

BTW you can use a hair dryer (turn it on cold) for faster blowing up.
