Thank you Anna and Tripgirl2020 for your informative replies. I'll combine my answer in the same post.
"I think the prices reflect the current demand in the hospitality services. Post-COVID, people are eager to travel after being cooped up for so long. September is also considered a peak travelling season in Switzerland so prices do reflect this. You might be able to find good accommodation deals if you travel in October or November. " I thought they may be the case regarding prices. We would prefer to travel closer to the Northern summer (as we escaping our winter!) and picked September hoping the peak summer period might be slowing yet the weather still warmish. We will have a look at later months.
"We book about 11 months out so I think that helps. " Good advice. We will be booking hotels as far in advance as possible once we book our flights.
"I personally booked places with a kitchen so we had the option to cook meals ( we made breakfast every day" As I anticipate only 2-3 nights in most stopovers I'm not sure we will be self catering. We certainly do that on longer trips. If we decide to stay longer somewhere that is an option.
"Also while in Grindelwald, Zermatt, and the Lucerne areas we did not book directly in a downtown area, but we were always within walking distance. Maybe perhaps you can consider something along those lines." That is certainly advice we will take on board when looking
"I can tell you for 13 nights in Switzerland last year we spent about $1700, this year $1850," that's promising. Is that Australian $$?
