Location information for Switzerland

Switzerland is best explored by rental car. ERentals has over 67 pick-up locations in Switzerland. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Switzerland is a favourite travel destination in Central Europe. It blends many of the highlights of a trip to Germany, France or Italy into a single holiday experience against the backdrop of the Alps. Using cheap car hire in Switzerland is a boon to tourists, providing them with freedom and mobility to enjoy Switzerland on their own terms.

There are three major cities in this diverse country, beginning with the largest and most prominent, Zurich. Based on Lake Zurich, this city has access to Alpine hiking trails and receives year-round tourists. Geneva is a sort of international capital, with important diplomatic as well as non-government offices from around the world. Locally, Bern is the administrative capital and boasts stately government buildings.

The cultural amenities and attractions in these cities are first rate. Geneva operates dozens of original museums appealing to the internationally minded, while Zurich and Bern are more mainstream when it comes to dining, shopping and entertainment infrastructure. Each of these cities is well-equipped to receive visitors and has its own share of historic landmarks.

A great place to be based is in centrally-located Lucerne. Skiers can easily connect to St Moritz in the Elgadine Valley with its world-class slopes and infrastructure. While St Moritz appeals to affluent skiers who can afford to ski at one of the world's best venues, there are dozens of other moderately priced ski resorts in Switzerland that are well worth the visit.

Another advantage to being in Lucerne is the ability to connect by Switzerland hire car to regions across Switzerland. In fact, Switzerland's own central location means drivers can easily connect from Italy to France, Germany or Italy. Some hire car companies may require notification if you plan to drive out of the original country.

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 ERentals 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 is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
