Car Hire Switzerland Travel Information

Switzerland Travelling Tips

The roads of Switzerland offer spectacular views of the Alps, one of the world's most dramatic mountain ranges. The alpine passes are easy to drive but extra caution is advised on narrow and winding roads. You can also tour medieval villages, beautiful flower gardens and many Swiss vineyards. 

Time Difference in Switzerland

Collect your hire car in Geneva and you will find that the time difference in Switzerland is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+1).

Language in Switzerland

Enjoy a cheap car hire in Switzerland and hear the locals speak the official languages of German, French, Italian and Romansch. English is usually understood in cities and major tourist areas, so when you pick up a car hire in Zurich you can speak to the staff in English or try your hand at the official languages of Switzerland.

Electricity in Switzerland

The electricity in Switzerland is 220 V, 50 Hz. Most power sockets take three-pin plugs, but the standard Continental two-round-pin plug is used for the majority of small appliances. If you are holidaying with a car hire in Basel and forget your adaptor you will be able to buy one at the local tourist shops.

Booking your cheap car hire in Switzerland is a great starting point for your holidays, but there are other details you should look into. For instance, exchange rates. The currency in Switzerland is the Swiss Franc (CHF).
