Hi there, not sure about the category…
I have a dilemma and would love an external point of view. I’m struggling to decide if I downgrade to 2nd class or not for my daily ride.
I’m using 1st class in CFF for years now. With about 1h ride every morning (a bit less with Covid), being pretty tall and working often during the trip, I got really used to the comfort 1st class provide (especially the Quiet zone). Obviously it is not reall a mustachian choice…
As my wife is using a 1st class AG as well (she’s not interested at all by the FIRE concept…) I’m benefiting of the “AG Partner” prices. And I’m looking to pay anually starting next month if I go 2nd class. That woud mean :
1st CHF 4340.– /year or 4560.- if I pay monthly
2nd CHF 2700.– /year
So 1640.- or 1860.- saving per year. Which don’t sound like a lot, but still a nice amount in 10 years.
Up to what extent do you, personally, put individual comfort at work today, compare to the futur modest savings it can bring?
I know no one can answer the question but myself at the end, but sometime hearing other people vision help us give a different perspective. Thank you!
P.S : I didn’t found similar topic, but if it exist already, my bad.
