Questions and answers about long-term rental

When does long-term rental make sense?

If you only want to drive your car for a few weeks, for example for extended holidays, or just to try out a car, then long-term rental makes sense.

What do I have to consider about a long-term rental?

You need to know that you will have to pay for additional costs, such as insurance and additional drivers. In addition, it will not be valid in your home canton, so you will not be able to get a blue parking card.

Are others allowed to drive your car?

Only with a valid driving licence and only if this is written in the contract.

Is long-term rental something for senior citizens?

If people of advanced age would like to have their own car, long-term rental is not the ideal choice. It is aimed at all those who only want to drive a car for a few weeks, such as when a car is needed temporarily. (Learn more about getting a car as senior)

Congratulations to Carvolution AG and its employees. A young company that is really very committed. Without the annoying paperwork, hidden clauses and/or pitfalls. Renting a vehicle was the best option for us in terms of economy, cost control (fixed costs - no ifs and buts!) and flexibility.

I wanted to try a car for a longer period of time, but I did not want to commit to a full lease. I found the interaction with the staff extremely pleasant, fast, with modern communication methods like whatsapp and I felt very at comfortable with it every step of the way. I highly recommend it to everyone! Just try it and you will love it.

What else can you say about Carvolution other than: Top notch! The prices are, if you compare all the costs, absolutely unbelievable and the contact with the staff couldn't be more simpler and friendlier. The car was more than I expected in terms of equipment and on my request to get a white car, I even accepted.

Carvolution has convinced and inspired me. The whole process was simple and Carvolution took good care of me. The delivery of the car was fast and professional. I am more than satisfied with the overall service and with my new car. I can warmly recommend Carvolution. A big thank you again to all of you.

What I like about them is the service, the entire car package being in one payment (insurance, maintenance & service, repairs, tyres, etc.) and they are very easy to deal with. They speak English, which is useful for me while I am still learning German. As a local Google guide, I highly recommend this company.
