Location information for Switzerland

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

From its watch factories to the grand ski resorts of the Alps, Switzerland is a first-rate travel destination at the heart of Central Europe. Fashionable towns, beautiful countryside and the world's best chocolate await visitors. Having a cheap Switzerland hire car makes touring this diverse country a laid-back experience.

There is no dedicated ‘Swiss language', though the majority of locals speak Swiss German. Even so, four languages are prominently spoken in this Switzerland so it comes as no surprise that culture is a high-profile commodity here. Impressive museums are found in all of the major regions.

At the confluence of the Zurich Lake and the Limmat River, Zurich is the largest Swiss city and serves as gateway to the Alpine resorts. St Moritz is the country's elite ski resort, though Zermatt receives more tourists. Dozens of other ski resorts dot the slopes of the Alps.

The Jura Mountains are known both for their outdoor appeal and a history of watch-making. Sleepy hamlets are nestled into sleepy valleys and the local culture has a lot in common with France. This is a charming facet of Switzerland that is difficult to explore without a hire car in Switzerland.

Just as many cosmopolitan destinations await visitors who are more interested in fine-dining, museum-hopping and five-star hotels. Bern boasts all of the regalia, infrastructure and nightlife expected from a capital city. Geneva and Basel are also prominent cities well worth visiting. Centrally-located Lucerne is a good base for Switzerland budget car rental.

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 Ecarz.co.uk 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 Ecarz.co.uk? at this location
