I have just signed up for the trip on 10th May and very much looking forward to it.
I'm a Londoner travelling from Heathrow.
The comments on currency are helpful, I won't order much in the way of Swiss Francs.
Are there many departing from Heathrow?

Regards... Hugh
Good Afternoon Hugh,

There are currently 9 travelers departing from Heathrow so you are not alone.

Kindest Regards,
Mildred

Hello again Mildred and thanks for your response.
Another question occurs to me as the departure date gets closer;
Any suggestions on clothing for that area in May?
Regards... Hugh

Hi Hugh,

The thing about the weather is that it isn't as predictable as it once was - that said, historically the area has temperatures averaging 14 degrees with highs of 19 degrees with a little bit of rain. I'd recommend packing lightweight clothing that you can layer if needed along with a waterproof anorak (on the basis that if you take it, you may not need it).

Kindest regards,

Julia

I have done many JY tours far and near at all times of the year my wardrobe is basically the same ..layers...
I have a very good jacket thats a three in one, lightweight jacket that has a fleece that can go inside to make a thick jacket or just wear the fleece...I always have scarf and gloves, i don't bother with umbrella but others sometimes do. I tend to go smart/casual and comfy...

Have a great time

Cindy

Hi

I phoned Just You and was informed that in Switzerland and Lichtenstein, Swiss Francs were only acceptable.  So I have Euros and Swiss Francs.  However, I am sure monies will be well spent where ever Big Grin

I am flying from Birmingham.  Is there anyone else flying from this destination too?

I trust that I will be met at in Switzerland if I am the only one!!!

Wink
I am really looking forward to this trip and hope the weather holds out for us all.
