Location information for Lausanne

The tranquil Swiss city of Lausanne sits comfortably along the northernmost side of Lake Geneva. The city is famous for its numerous museums, which feature exhibit themes that vary from fine arts and natural history to eccentric masterpieces and sports history. The best way to explore all these museums and other attractions of the city is by acquiring a cheap car hire in Lausanne.

Lausanne is also a university town where two famous universities are located. Students make up a huge chunk of the city's population and they contribute largely to its predominantly young and intellectual character. The chief offices of the International Olympic Committee and the Olympic Museum, with its displays depicting Olympic history, are also located here.

Aside from the Olympic Museum, museums in Lausanne also include the Palais de Rumine, a magnificent establishment with various exhibits that range from natural history displays to fine arts collection. There is also the Collection de l'Art Brut where some of the most eccentric works in the world of art are housed.

For a trip down history lane, a visit to the Musee Historique de Lausanne is in order. The museum is the best place in the city to sample a taste of Lausanne's rich, beautiful history. To maximize the historical experience, you can also take your car rental down to the old town square with its cobbled streets and intimate cafes.

In addition to the various destinations within the city, there are also a lot more places to see outside it –especially if you get cheap car hire in Lausanne. With a car rental, it is possible and very comfortable to visit nearby villages, explore the outstanding scenery, or simply go on a leisure drive along Lake Geneva.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
