Planning your budget

financial aid

Funds, grants and fellowships are available to enable civil society to attend international conferences.

Accommodation

The Delegates Welcome Service provides logistical support to delegates who wish inexpensive accommodation. Under specific conditions, our Service may grant a subsidy to reduce accommodation costs in Geneva.

Food

Consider a budget of around CHF 60.-/day.

  • breakfast: often included in the price of the hotel room when CAGI booked your stay,
  • lunch cafeterias within international organizations as at UNOG, have inexpensive menus (less than CHF 20.-),
  • dinner offers vary according to restaurants. Some of them have menus under CHF 30.-, and the city has a large number of take-out restaurants and international grocery stores.

Transport in the city

TPG_Geneva_Transport_Card

All hotel guests in Geneva receive a Geneva Transport Card to use Geneva public transport (TPG), free of charge, for the duration of their stay.

Or if you stay with an acquaintance and your financial options are limited, you may ask for this card, while stocks last, at the Welcome Delegates Service.
