Location information for Switzerland

Switzerland is best explored by rental car. CarhireSaving has over 60 pick-up locations in Switzerland. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Land of chocolates, meticulously-crafted clocks, world-renowned neutrality and sublime ski slopes, Switzerland is a small country nestled into the heart of Europe. It is bordered by five countries and boasts four unofficial languages. Although the Swiss transportation system is excellent, there is no alternative to exploring the countryside with the freedom of a cheap hire car in Switzerland.

Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland, tucked into the corner of a picturesque lake. The city's prosperous financial district has made it a candidate for city with the highest standard of living in the world. The alleyways conceal a wealth of 16th and 17th century architecture. The local Museum of Fine Arts is a major attraction.

Many more museums are located in Geneva, a proud diplomatic city that exemplifies Switzerland's ability to work with other nations. Bern is the Swiss capital and gateway to the country's finest castles. Alternately, Reuss is a tiny village on the outskirts of Lucerne that boasts a dense collection of 15th-century buildings.

To enjoy the quintessential Alpine scenery, take your Switzerland rental car to Interlaken, home to the trio of peaks: Eiger, Mönch and Jungrau. Hikers can follow trails to these summits, but most visitors opt for the cable car. St Moritz and Zermatt are the two most popular ski resorts in Switzerland.

Prominent European cities like Paris, Milan, Vienna and Munich are found in this part of Europe, and given the EU's relaxed border regulations tourists are more likely to hire a car and keep it for the entirety of their Central European tour. Drivers are in a unique position to enjoy the stunning Swiss countryside along the way.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is CarhireSaving the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by CarhireSaving? at this location
