Switzerland Car HireSwitzerland combines German, French and Italian cultures to create its own sophisticated identity. Blessed with arguably the most spectacular natural beauty in Europe, Switzerland offers a wonderful range of outdoor adventures. There is something to the cliches of cheese, chocolate and clocks, as a backdrop for stuffy bankers and fierce national independence. However, when enjoying your Swiss self drive holiday, be prepared for much more. Be ready to jump into a vibrant nightlife, learn more about famous international organisations and even try a bit of yodelling. Be warned - the Swiss enjoy a very high standard of living, and your budget may take a battering.


Take on the famous ski slopes in winter and enjoy famous ski resorts such as St Moritz and Zermatt, Klosters and Villars. They are posh, pretty and very, very expensive. While these are the play grounds of winter, don't overlook the hiking opportunities of Switzerland in summer, or the adrenalin adventures of Interlaken.


Those with a low budget will be motivated to seek out affordable accommodation options - and they may turn out the winners. Who could forget the self-drive holiday in Switzerland when they rented out space in a dairy farmers barn while the cows were out to summer pasture, complete with cow bells and yodelling? Some inns along mountain hiking trails and some independent hostels have the greatest character and atmosphere. While prices are relatively high, the standard of accommodation is generally good, and there is no shortage of top-end luxury in which to indulge in Swiss chocolates and great regional wines rarely found outside Switzerland.


Switzerland is a great place to explore at your own pace in a great value Switzerland rental car. Slow down to take in the scenery, and spend the money you saved with our great rates on fondue and fashion in Zurich. When driving your bargain Swiss rental car, take care on mountain roads. Dip your lights in tunnels. Be especially careful on windy mountain roads and don't forget that ascending traffic has right of way. Carry snow chains in colder months for mountain driving. You need a vignette or ticket to use motorways and toll roads around Switzerland, which you can collect from most car rental agencies or the local Motoring Association. You don't need an international drivers' license, but to take advantage of our great low rates for Switzerland car hire, you need your home country drivers' license with no major endorsements.


Switzerland is quite rightly a land obsessed with dairy. The quality of chocolate, cheeses, yoghurts and butter is a testament to the happy lives of Swiss cows and the verdant pastures in which they graze. The traditional dishes of fondue and raclette are coronary risks, but risks worth taking. Make sure you also try the local wursts, hearty sausages to warm up with on snowy days. Switzerland's cities also have plenty of restaurants and cafes dishing up cuisines from around the world, so no-one need get homesick for too long!

In case of emergencies dial 117 for police and 111 for medical emergency advice.
