It normally starts at 1 CHF for the first hour and works up gradually to about 25 CHF for 24 hours. Three hours will cost you about 5 CHF in most town centre car parks.

Take a look at some of the hotel websites for overnight parking fees. It's 12-15 francs minimum and upwards from there for overnight in the cities. If you are outside the cities, the hotel may have room for a small parking lot that wil be free or less expensive.

Here are the charges in the city centre parking in Geneva - out of town places are normally cheaper, but of course not so convenient.

As in other areas, Geneva (and probably Zurich too) seems to be on a different planet from Neuchâtel :-)

We paid 28frs to park our car for 24 hours at the Zurich Marriott. 35frs I think it was at the Basel Hilton.

In Bern we paid 6.50 for parking at the Rathaus parking garage for around 4 hours.

In Martigny the town's main parking lot charges 1frs per hour BUT does not charge you for between 12.30 and 2pm or after 8pm until about 7am the next day. So you need to read the instructions on the meters carefully. In some places you pay when you come to get your car. That is simple. In others you need to estimate how long you will park and then enter the number of your parking space and pay accordingly. This is where it pays to read the details!!
