Is there such a thing as dual currency credit cards in Switzerland. A card that could handle CHF, EUR, USD and GBP- or at least two of these - would be ideal.

In Singapore and Hong Kong, for example, dual currency cards in S$ and RMB or HK$ and RMB were available. Those cards saved us a lot of money because we traveled between China, Sinagpore and Hong Kong often and did not have to pay any foreign transaction fees on credit card transactions.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Dual-currency credit cards are not available in Switzerland at this time. However, many Swiss issuers offer credit cards in a number of different currencies (typically CHF, EUR and USD).

For example, if you make purchases both in Switzerland and in euro-zone countries, you could use both CHF and EUR credit cards to avoid foreign transaction fees.
