Car subscriptions are considered an affordable alternative to buying or leasing. Carvolution is considered a pioneer in this sector, having introduced the car subscription to the Swiss market in 2018. It quickly gained popularity and competition was not long in coming. This blog post explains the differences between the BMW subscription and the Carvolution subscription. It's up to you to choose which one suits you best.

Similarities and differences of the car subscription

Everything about the car is included in both subscriptions. There are no hidden or additional costs. The only thing that customers have to do themselves is to fill up the tank or recharge the battery. It should be mentioned here, however, that with the Carvolution subscription, a discounted fuel card - or recharge card - is included.

With both car subscription providers, comprehensive insurance is part of the 'all-inclusive' package. With BMW, the excess of CHF 1,000 is unique, while with Carvolution you can choose between an excess of CHF 500, 1,000 or 1,500.

You can or must also take out parking damage insurance. With the BMW subscription, you have to pay an excess of CHF 300.00, while with the Carvolution subscription, this insurance covers 2 damages per year. If you do not take out parking damage insurance, any damage will be covered by comprehensive insurance with the corresponding excess.

As far as the range is concerned, the BMW subscription - as the name suggests - only offers BMWs. In addition, these are used cars. With Carvolution you can choose from 40 different models of various makes, including BMWs.

With Carvolution you can let anyone drive, as long as they have a valid Swiss driving licence. With the BMW subscription, only the person who has taken out the subscription is allowed to drive, as well as the drivers who have been duly mentioned in the contract.

Finally, let's compare the duration of the subscription: with BMW, there is no minimum duration, only a cancellation period of 3 months. With Carvolution you can choose between 3 or 6 months and up to 36 or 48 months. The longer the term, the more attractive the monthly subscription price.

Carvolution distinguishes itself in the following ways:

  • Carvolution offers new cars of various makes and models
  • With Carvolution, an AVIA fuel card or an evpass charging card is included in the all-inclusive package

  • 293 reviews on Google. The Carvolution community is growing every day

  • A useful app. The subscription is quickly available and you can adjust the monthly kilometrage package yourself.

  • Available 7 days a week via live chat

  • Mobiliar is a strategic partner
