Top tips for renting a car in Switzerland

  • Alpine driving is at its best in Switzerland, so anyone who loves mountain vistas will want to rent a car here to make the most of the spectacular views. Renting a car in Switzerland allows drivers to visit iconic roads like the Great St. Bernard Pass and the St. Gotthard Pass, while those up for a more scenic route can opt for locations such as Lake Lucerne and the Lauterbrunnen Valley, which is best explored with the flexibility of a car.
  • Drivers who wish to avoid the winding roads of mountain passes like the Furka Pass may opt in some cases to take the tunnel. This involves loading the car onto a special rail facility that will transport you and the vehicle through the mountains for a fee. An unusual way of travel, these tunnels can be accessed in locations like Furka, Albula, Simplon, and Lotschberg.
  • In Switzerland, it is mandatory for children up to the age of seven to be seated in an age-appropriate child or booster seat. Rental agencies do have these on hand, but it is recommended to book well in advance to guarantee that one will be available, especially in the busy summer months. Expect to pay an additional fee of around 78 CHF (78 USD) per rental with an agency like Budget.
  • Most agencies allow non-EU travelers who rent a car in Switzerland to drive the vehicle into other Western European countries for no additional charge. Some companies impose restrictions on countries like Hungary and Greece, where cross-border travel is allowed for a fee of approx. 42 CHF (42 USD) per day through an agency like Avis. In general, it is always best to inform the agency of your plans in advance, as extra paperwork or special EU-marked number plates may be required.
