Switzerland car hire information

When you’re booking car hire in Switzerland, there aren’t any unusual traffic laws that you need to be aware of. Perhaps the only really notable legal requirement is that all cars need to have a motor vignette. This is an obligatory road tax sticker, without which you won’t be allowed to drive on the country’s national road network, or Nationalstrassennetz. However, you’ll be pleased to know that all rental cars come with a vignette already attached. Just make sure that it’s there before you drive off. Otherwise, the laws are pretty standard, like other European countries. You will be driving on the right, so a good tip is to choose an automatic when you rent a car, as it can be quite disconcerting changing gears with your right hand at first. Swiss law also requires that you have your headlights on during the day. Don't forget to keep an eye out for cyclists, as they have the right of way at many intersections and make sure you always stop at pedestrian crossings.

The first legal requirement to rent a car in Switzerland is that you need to be at least 20 years old. At the same time, one car hire company may have different car rental policies to another. You may only be able to hire more powerful cars if you’re over the age of 25, while others may allow you to do so, but for a surcharge. You’d do well book child seats at the same time as your car hire if you are travelling with children under the age of 8, as they are required by law. Your car rental will include third-party liability insurance, so make sure you get the documentation and keep it in your car as proof in case the police ask to see it. All car rentals require you to present your driver’s licence and your passport.

You’ll encounter the heaviest traffic in Switzerland in the cantons of Zurich and Geneva, which makes sense as these are also the largest and busiest cities in the country. The streets of Zurich are the most congested and rank among the top cities in Europe for traffic. If you have to drive through either of these cities to get to tourist attractions, it’s easier to park rental cars and use the city’s excellent and comprehensive public transport system instead. The busiest road in the country is the A2 motorway, which is the main route from south to north, linking the cities of Chiasso and Basel.

Given the fabled Swiss countryside, there are plenty of very attractive road trips that will vindicate your decision to book a car hire. In the Alps, you can take any number of scenic roads, but the Furka Pass route surpasses them all with its natural beauty and wonderful views. You’ll start at Obergoms and drive to Andermatt, passing the ice grotto at the Rhône Glacier along the way. This is a rather famous road too, as the car chase location for the Bond movie, “Goldfinger". To truly get in touch with traditional Swiss folklore, take the Appenzell to St Moritz road trip. You’ll travel through Switzerland’s iconic patchwork of dairy farms and meadows that we all know from the tales of Heidi. With all this on offer, booking rental cars is the way to go.
