Steer off the trodden track

Switzerland is a beautiful place to visit in any season. The crisp white snow glistening on the mountains in the sunshine is in stark contrast to the deep blue lakes and emerald green trees yet from some vantage points you get to enjoy all three at the same time.

This is a true place of tranquillity where everything feels clean and fresh and new - including the air. Budget car hire offer tourers for summer travelling which make light work of the mountain roads and in the winter you will need the provided snow chains to ensure an easier drive through trickier terrain.

Switzerland is home to a large corporate community and therefore many business travellers visit throughout the year. Special deals such as the CorpRate from Budget make the trip even more financially viable plus you get to enjoy the stunning landscapes while you work! Travel in confidence with Budgets GPS navigation systems.

With car hire locations in Geneva, Zurich as well as major airports travellers are sure to find a rental solution for their visit to Switzerland.

The size of Switzerland makes car hire the ideal method of seeing as much as possible during you stay, whether this is a tour of the magical castles or spending a week in a ski resort.

It should be remembered that the larger cars in the Budget range are perfect for ski-trips and will make that transition from airport to resort simple and stress free, leaving you in the best mindset to hit the pistes.

So no matter the reason for visiting Switzerland, be it business, touring historical sites or heading to the excellent alpine resorts, a Budget hire car is a brilliant companion for any journey.

When using our car rental services in Switzerland it is important to understand the local rules of the road.

Speed limits are 100-120 kph (62-74 mph) on expressways, 80 kph (50 mph) on regular roads and 50 kph (30 mph) in built up areas.

It is important to follow these speed limits as Swiss authorities use radar triggered speed cameras located on the side of the road.

Once these rules are understood it is time to leave the car rental location and see some of the spectacular 'mountain-scapes', the Alps being a dominant feature in nearly all parts of Switzerland.

As well as exquisite scenic splendour it is hard not to notice the delightful chateaus and castles that give the country a fairytale feel.

The chateau de Grandson is a prime example of the medieval architecture in this part of Europe with high walls and conical towers.

The site should also interest history buffs as it was the location of the Battle of Grandson, an event which saw the Burgundian forces of Charles the Bold defeated by Swiss regulars.

Nearby to Geneva is the quaint Gruyere Castle, a hilltop fortress that gives visitors the chance to learn about five centuries of Swiss history.

Car rental will help all visitors to gain freedom of travel to see the plethora of sights and sounds that Switzerland has to offer.
