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)
