How can I get a cheap car rental in Switzerland?

Here are some of our top tips if you want to grab the best price on a car rental:

  • Use our nifty filter feature to point you in the direction of the hottest car deals in town — and then compare the prices;
  • By submitting your email address into our Price Drop Alert, you'll stay on top of all the unbeatable prices for your chosen destination;
  • Broaden your search to include both airport and non-airport pickup and drop-off office locations to be sure you're scoring the best possible offer in town;
  • If your vacation is somewhat flexible, alter your dates to find cheaper prices on different days of the week;
  • See if you can keep your pickup and drop-off times as similar as possible. If you return your rental car at a later time than you picked it up, you may be charged a whole extra day;
  • Keep more hard-earned dollars in your wallet. You'll grab some of the best deals when you prepay your rental car;
  • And lastly, lock in your preferred vehicle as soon as possible to bag a load of savings!

What is the most popular rental car category in Switzerland?

Bigger doesn't always mean better, and that's especially true in the case of your wheels. In Switzerland, compact cars are the most commonly booked rental vehicle for a good reason. Impressive gas mileage, zippier handling, and more environmentally friendly are only the start! If you're planning to drive in Canton of Zurich or Basel, book something that's compact and zippy.

It's always good to escape the city, and if you do, you'll be richly rewarded. With mountains, lakes, and rivers to explore, Switzerland is ripe for exciting day trips. A bigger vehicle like an SUV or a four-wheel drive will give you and the family more room to move for those long, leisurely drives.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Switzerland?

Sometimes it's all about the journey, which makes choosing the right car important. If you're about to embark on an amazing road trip around Switzerland, a safe and sturdy SUV could be the answer. If you're looking for the cheapest possible price and plan to stick to city driving, a budget compact is a wise pick. All you have to do is decide what's the best fit, round up the troops, and rack up those miles.
