Dollars to Swiss Francs to Euros?

Jump to last reply

I apologize in advance for this message, but I am horrible in math. I always have difficulty figuring out the exchange rates. I'm currently in Switzerland, but often need euros as the French border is so close. Someone suggested that instead of exchanging dollars to euros which is currently 1 euro = $1.40 that it could be better for me to first exchange to swiss francs 1 SF = $1.08 than to euros? Could this be beneficial to me? I think 1SF = 1.29 euros. If I'm figuring it out right, it's would be about the same exchange rate even if I were to exchange dollars directly to euros.

Merci,
Malya
