Top tips for hiring a car in Swiss Alps

  • By renting a car in the Swiss Alps, tourists can travel to some of the areas that are not serviced by taxis and buses. The Swiss Alps are one of Switzerland's hilly regions. Narrow valleys, ravines, and canyons are frequently found between these mountains. Therefore, consider renting a four-wheel drive with high ground clearance to make it easier for you to navigate these challenging terrains. The intermediate SUV is one of the car types that is suitable for this type of terrain.
  • If you use Swiss Alps car rentals with your kids, keep in mind that in Switzerland, all children under the age of 12 must ride in booster seats. So, while picking up or renting a car from your preferred automobile provider, make sure to ask for the booster seat. All Swiss Alps rental car pick-up locations have child seats, infant seats, and booster seats available. However, those who request these seats must pay a daily fee.
  • Car rentals in the Swiss Alps allow their customers to drive their cars to neighboring France without restrictions. Since both France and Switzerland are part of the Schengen Area, visitors to either country can cross to the other freely. However, if you are intending on taking your car from any of the Swiss Alps car rentals to France or any other neighboring country, you have to inform your agency before crossing the border. You also need to find out from your respective car agency if they charge any additional fee for crossing the border with your rented car.
  • In the Swiss Alps, there aren't as many gas stations, so make sure to fill up your car whenever you can. Because there are fewer cars on the roads in this area, there are fewer gas stations. Due to the difficulty of driving, only a tiny number of drivers visit the mountainous areas of the region.

  • Should I rent a car in the Swiss Alps?

You can choose your own departure time and route while using a rental automobile, which is not possible when using the public transit system. You may travel around more easily with the help of your rental car. The amount of luggage you have will determine the type of car you can rent.

  • What is driving like in the Swiss Alps?

    It will be a fantastic experience to go across the Swiss Alps in your rented vehicle. The bulk of the winding, narrow roads in the Swiss Alps are curved. When driving a car on these routes, more attention is required. Driving in the Swiss Alps requires you to abide by the set speed limits to stay out of trouble with the local traffic police. The majority of Swiss Alps motorways have speed cameras strategically placed to help reduce traffic offenses, such as exceeding the posted speed limit.

  • How old do I have to be to rent a car in the Swiss Alps?

    To rent a car at any of the pick-up locations for the various car rentals in the Swiss Alps, you must be at least 21 years old. However, several rental car companies in the Swiss Alps restrict the use of their vehicles to drivers above the age of 25 at any of their drop-off locations. However, these businesses levy an underage surcharge for drivers who are under 25 and at least 21 years old. Every day, these companies impose this additional payment. Anyone under the age of 21 is not allowed to rent a car in the Swiss Alps or anywhere else in Switzerland, as a general rule.
