Payment with Dutch bank card in CH

Hi all,

I'll have a short trip at the end of this december in CH.

I am about to use a Dutch bank card of SNS Bank (Wereldpas), with contactless chip on it.

Question:
- is it accepted everywhere in CH ?
- what is the exchange rate ?

Thanks, I meant if that's cheaper to withdraw Swiss Francs bank note in NL, and use there, to avoid robbed exchange rate by the bank. But now I think it's much cheaper to pay directly by Bank card in CH.

Thanks

The exchange rate is normally set by your bank. Only your bank can tell.
