Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Bern?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Bern. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Bern vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Switzerland?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Switzerland. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Dollar require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Do I have to return my Dollar rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Dollar rental with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Dollar.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Bern definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Dollar offer one-way rentals in Bern?
Dollar offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
