So Switserland is expensive, right? Yes, there’s no denying it. But please remember JCI Congress prices are an absolute steal, if you look at the return on investment! JCI Switzerland is also VERY well connected, so expect the program to be of very high quality!
A cost example: travel together with 4 people in 1 car (9L / 100km & 1.9€ / L):
Congress Fee: 625 USD
Belgian Delegation: 525 EUR
Diesel: 50 EUR per person
Péage France: 12.5 EUR per person
Vignette CH: 10 EUR per person
Drinks / food while there: up to you. (Remember there’s a Belgian reception, an opening party, a gala, and 2 National Nights included already!)
Total per person: 1222.50 EUR
Add that the World Congress is 1 day longer than a European Conference, and I’d argue attending Zürich is cheaper than attending Bucharest!
