A deeper look at the Swiss franc

It is important to note that although Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, it is a part of the European Economic Area. As a result, it does not make use of the Euro as the official currency. The Swiss franc is however, legal tender in Switzerland, Liechtenstein and the Italian exclave of Campione d’Italia.

Ordered card and cash online through these guys. Usually takes 5 days. Got notification the following day was ready to collect. Picked up from Werribbee Plaza outlet. Those guys were amazing.
