Search for car hire in Switzerland
Switzerland is known for its picturesque villages, stunning mountain scenery and fantastic ski resorts, but touring the country on a car hire holiday will enable you to see much more of what it has to offer. With everything from cosmopolitan cities to historic castles, Switzerland has something to suit everyone and, with a hire car, you can really explore the country.
You can book a rental car online with easyCar, the low-cost, online, car hire specialist and pick it up when you arrive in Switzerland. You can then use your rental car for day-trips or break up your holiday by staying in two locations, perhaps by spending part of it based in a city and part of it at a ski resort.
Cities and Towns in Switzerland
easyCar has car rental facilities in many cities and towns in Switzerland, including Basel, Geneva, Zurich, Locarno, Bern, Interlaken, Lausanne and Lucerne. You'll find plenty to entertain you in Switzerland's cities, but you'll really be able to make the most of your stay with a hire car.
Geneva, for example, is known for its cultural attractions, which include museums, sculptures and galleries. The city's most famous landmarks are the Palais des Nations (the headquarters of the United Nations) and the 140-metre-high fountain, the Jet d'Eau, and it is also known for its rich history of clock-making. However, using a rental car will also enable you to visit many other attractions, such as the Chambésy Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, which are situated just outside of Geneva, or the Roman ruins and the St. Bernard Dog Museum and Kennels at Martigny.
If you use Zurich as a base, you can use a rental car to get to the classy ski resort of Klosters or to the pretty town of Einsiedeln, with its Benedictine Monastery and beautiful Basilica, whilst if you are staying in Interlaken, using a hire car will mean that you can visit the Ballenberg Open Air Museum in Brienz or drive to the city of Lugano, which is packed with attractions.
Mountains, Lakes and Castles
Switzerland is the perfect place for a holiday if you love the great outdoors and, if you head off to the mountains in your hire car, you'll find a wide range of activities on offer throughout the year. Ski resorts such as Klosters, Davos, Hoch-Ybrig, Holzegg, Grindelward, Chateau d'Oex and St. Moritz offer sports such as skiing, snowboarding and ice skating during winter and hiking, mountain-biking and horse riding during the summer.
Alternatively, you can use your rental car to explore the countryside, where you can see beautiful lakes, such as Lake Lucerne and Lake Lugano, and visit historic castles, such as the Château de Chillon, near Montreux.
