What you need to know before you go
How do I get the best deals on an Interlaken National car rental?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my rental car in Interlaken?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Interlaken?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Interlaken is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over National's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Interlaken?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Interlaken. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Interlaken getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Switzerland require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Switzerland. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National requires a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Interlaken definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Interlaken.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another National. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
