By combo switch I presume you mean a combo bathroom fan and light-in-fan switch ?

Switch costs about $25-50 depending on design and make, assuming this is a one-speed fan. This is probably Not something an electrician would have on his truck, so likely to take two trips. Electrician cost should be minimum service call each trip - only about a 5 minutes changeout, but will probably take two trips - one to check size and type, second to come back and put in after he gets from box store or his shop. Could runn from about $75-150 labor (service call charge) - maybe one time if he is nice about it, maybe twice if he charges you full cost for two trips.

Not at all tough to replace yourself if you are into light electrical work - but probably not a good first time thing if you have not done electrical before, because more than 3 wires, and they are usually a tight fit in usual electrical boxes.

Search category for contractor in Search the List is Electrician, of course. A Handyman could do it for probably about half the labor cost, if you have one you trust with bathroom electrical, where you are turning switches on and off with possibly wet hands.
