    Country Essentials

    In Switzerland, traffic flows on the right-hand side of the road.

    Geneva is on the border with France, so if you are driving around the city make sure that you have all the necessary documents and equipment to comply with French road rules also.

    Standard Inclusions

    Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection are included in Auto Europe's rates in Switzerland. The CDW and theft protection reduces the deductible (responsibility of the client) to a capped amount. Fire insurance is also included in your car rental. Super CDW is usually offered locally to reduce the deductible of your rental to as low as zero.

    Excess Refund Insurance can be purchased from Auto Europe when you make your booking. This insurance refunds your excess costs up to $5000 should any damage occur to the vehicles during your rental.

    Driving in Switzerland

    Economy Car Rental in SwitzerlandSwitzerland is a land of great culture and geographical wealth. Switzerland has four official languages and an astounding amount of chocolate, but there is more to Switzerland than just chocolate. Enjoy downhill skiing on the Alps or a relaxing tour of the unique Swiss vineyards on Lake Geneva. More adventurous travellers can indulge with a trip on a paraglider taxi.

    There are twelve regions, or cantons, in Switzerland each home to their own unique food and culture. Sample cheese fondue in Baden after a day on the slopes, or enjoy a steaming bowl of pasta with prosciutto and lardo after the Rabadan carnival. Soak up the atmosphere in a French bistro in Geneva. You will have the opportunity to indulge in a veritable smorgasbord of cuisine that mixes regional dishes with each other to create the perfect meal out.

    Switzerland is full of both adventure and relaxation, regardless of the season of the year. Full of the most exquisite European hiking trails, taking a rental car to the mountains is a perfect option. Take a hot air balloon ride through the Alps on a crisp autumn afternoon, or be pampered in a legendary Swiss spa. Many lakes dot Switzerland making it a perfect opportunity for a leisurely sail. With so much to experience in Switzerland, a car hire will give you the freedom to explore and take in the sights at your own pace. Use your car hire in Switzerland to travel through the different linguistic regions of the country and immerse yourself in the distinct cultures while you sample the traditional fare.
