Sorry if there's an existing thread but I couldn't see one!

I'm very tempted to buy a ticket but I wouldn't be able to afford to stay over, not so close to the Paris gigs. I wonder how easy it would be to attend the gig, maybe staying over just the night before, then heading to the airport straight after as I've done in Dublin a couple of times.

Anyone else thinking of travelling over from the UK?

I want too. So badly, I love Switzerland, I think I better ask the motherin, I spose she won't take it as badly as the Arizona suggestion

Oh and I am sure that is doable, Pip. I'm not sure which airlines fly direct to Bern though, the flights I take are usually to Basel or Zurich but it's such a small country let alone the German part so it isn't a hassle at all

I did a quick search for flights from Gatwick earlier, admittedly a half-hearted effort, and it came up with flights for about £800!! I must have been doing it wrong, I hope!

Let me know if you find reasonably priced flights please!

Yeah the ones I found with Air France are like over £200, fucking extortinate, Bern is a very expensive place, because Switzerland never had the change with the Euro, the economy has had a hard time, when my Swiss cousins come over here it's like cheap as chips to them! If you want reasonable you're probably going to have to fly to Zurich via Easy Jet, the flights are around £60 return. Ryanair don't seem to fly to any of the German cities in Switzerland which is a pain!

Thanks Tash! If I'm going to seriously consider this then I'll go for a seated gig ticket to keep costs down. I've got standing tix for all the Paris and Wembley gigs so I wouldn't exactly be depriving myself and it would mean I could fly out on the Wednesday and back first thing on the Thursday morning with no worries about queueing.

I should probably get seated too if I can persuade my mum to come, we have family in Switzerland, I think Bern is about a 30-40 minute drive from them. 440CHF for Level 1 can't be right surely?

Haha! Their grandparents actually have a guesthouse down the road from them! They have cable carts in their garden!

Easyjet. £48.98 return flying from Gatwick to Basel on the morning of the 2nd and back on the morning of the 3rd. Both are first flights of the day. Does that sound about right? Any idea how I'd get from Basel to Bern and back?!

Well I've taken the first step and booked the necessary dates off as annual leave! Just in case!

Just been on the phone to my mum, sounds like a possibility This may mean I won't be able to do the first Paris date though..

Good find Pip, bit of a pain Luton don't fly to Basel. Looks like this is the main rail site: https://www.sbb.ch Having a struggle trying to find out the prices though!
