Booking a SWISS Business Class Award

Air Canada Aeroplan charges 60,000 Aeroplan points each way for flights between Switzerland and New York or Boston, and 70,000 points each way for flights between Switzerland and Dulles IAD. Transfer points to Aeroplan instantly from Chase Ultimate Rewards (if you have a Sapphire Reserve or Ink Business Preferred) or AMEX Memership Rewards. It's possible to book with Avianca LifeMiles for 63K miles each way for these flights although LifeMiles customer support is abysmal, so we tend to avoid it. United MileagePlus charges 88K miles each way; Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer instantly to United.


Where to Stay in Switzerland

Our favorite luxury hotels in Switzerland are the Park Hotel Vitznau in the Lake Lucerne area and The Dolder Grand Hotel in Zurich. In Geneva proper, we recommend the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues Geneva, and in Lausanne, the Lausanne Palace.
