Switzerland is packed with stunning scenery, from mountains to lakes and picture-postcard Alpine views. An ideal country to explore by car because of its extensive road network and accessible size, car hire in Switzerland offers the chance to make the most of your trip.
The country is serviced by six international airports: Geneva (GVA), Zurich (ZRH), Basle (BSL), SION (SIR), Bern (BRN) and Lugano (LUG). Hire cars can be picked up from these locations. This country is famous for its snow-topped mountains and ski resorts so it's no surprise that the weather can be harsh at times during the winter. Do ensure when picking up your vehicle that you are equipped with snow chains if appropriate and a roof rack for any ski equipment you need.
In Switzerland car hire can provide easy access by road to most tourist attractions using the motorway network. Toll roads are common here so check whether your car is fitted with a tag, locally known as a Vignette, to avoid a costly bill.
History and culture lovers should explore Geneva and its museums and art galleries or perhaps take a trip to Berne for its old-town feel. If a bustling nightlife is what you're looking for, Zurich is the place to go. With influences from France, Germany and Italy, the choice of cuisine and fine wines in the city's restaurants is endless. Parking in Switzerland's cities is strictly zoned so stick to parking in public car parks to avoid any issues.
Beyond the excitement of the cities, Switzerland has more to offer visitors than just great skiing in winter. Resorts such as Mont Blanc, Zermatt and St Moritz deliver second-to-none ski facilities but also provide other year-round activities. During the summer months the stunning mountains are ideal for hiking, walking and biking. You will find breath-taking views as you explore lakes such as Lake Geneva or visit the spectacular Rhine Falls, the largest in Europe, located in northern Switzerland.
From its cities to the mountains, rolling hills and lakes, this country is full of stunning sights to explore by car.
