Young Driver Hire In Switzerland With No Extra Cost

That’s right, we’ve managed to team up with one of our suppliers in Switzerland to arrange something extremely rare in the car rental industry – car hire for young drivers with no extra fees or surcharges! You don’t even have to have held a licence for a full year – the only requirement is that you are over 21 and have held your licence for 6 months.

With young driver fees often reaching up to 25-30 CHF per day, it’s not rare for them to double or even triple the cost of your car, making it extortionately expensive for anyone under the age of 25. We decided to rectify this issue with an affordable car hire option for younger drivers – no strings attached.

Where in Switzerland is this offer available?

We have numerous branches that we can arrange this from, at both airport and city locations:

Basel Airport Basel CityCrissier
Bern CityGeneva CityKriens
Geneva Airport LausanneLugano Airport
La Tour-de-PeilzRuemlangZurich Airport
Lugano CityBern AirportZurich City

Am I able to hire without a credit card?

Yes, we can arrange a debit card rental from any of the airport locations as of writing, and are currently working on arranging this for the downtown locations too. We also offer a very low deposit from this location, just 200 CHF (approx. £153 / €175) held on the debit / credit card on arrival and released back to you at the end of the hire. That’s a far cry from the standard 1500 CHF deposits you get with most suppliers!

Can I take the car cross-border?

With this option you can take the car into almost all EU countries for no extra fee. These include:

AustriaGreat BritainSlovakia
BelgiumHungarySlovenia
CroatiaIreland Spain
Czech RepublicItalySweden
DenmarkNorwayAndorra
FinlandHollandLichtenstein
FrancePolandLuxembourg
GermanyPortugalMonaco

Just make sure you let us know when booking so we can make all necessary arrangements.

Is there an extra charge for winter ready vehicles?

If you’re hiring in the winter months (November to March) all cars will come fully equipped with the winter pack as mandatory by law in Switzerland, so they will already be fitted with the correct tyres for harsh weather conditions. If you’re going up to the Alps for a skiing holiday too you can also hire snow chains or a ski rack at the desk.

Please ensure you contact us directly for this option too as it’s not available to book on the website – you can contact us via email to [email protected] or call us on 0113 88 00 748.
