Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Bern Budget car rental?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need to bring when I get my rental car in Bern?
Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Bern's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Bern is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policies to find out what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Bern?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Bern. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Bern vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Switzerland require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Switzerland. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Bern. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Bern?
Bern definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Bern.
Does Bern Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Budget. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
