New York, NY (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
Switzerland brings many things to mind, including fine chocolates, ski chalets and Roger Federer. “Budget travel” is not usually on the list.
EuroCheapo.com, the expert guide to budget hotels in Europe, today announced the publication of guides to cheap hotels in Geneva and Zurich. This marks the company’s first foray into Switzerland, following the success of its guides to Paris, London and other pricey European destinations.
“Many budget travelers steer clear of Switzerland because they’ve been warned about stratospheric prices,” said Tom Meyers, EuroCheapo’s founder and Editor-In-Chief.
“While it’s certainly easy to overspend in Geneva and Zurich, our editors have uncovered many simple ways to make visiting more affordable. Both cities offer delightful inexpensive hotels that will keep your trip budget in check.”
EuroCheapo’s editors visited, inspected and photographed dozens of hotels and hostels in both cities, selecting properties they felt provided the greatest value, including options for under US $100. Additionally, the site includes articles and blog posts covering insider tips to save on sightseeing, dining, transportation and more.
“EuroCheapo has been devoted to finding Europe’s best budget hotels since 2001,” continued Meyers. “We’re thrilled to finally arrive in Switzerland.”
