KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Interlaken

  • If you hire a car in Interlaken, it offers you great flexibility compared to if you make the same trip using an alternative mode of transport like a taxi, train or bus. This is because you can depart and return at a time that’s suited to you rather than having to rely on public transport. For example, if you want to go to Bern, you can get there in about 45min by car. Alternatively, a train takes around 55min and you’d have to rely on the timetables.
  • Bern Airport (BRN) provides you with a wide range of car hire companies, so you’ll be driving off in no time. The branches are also easy to locate at the airport. For instance, if you are using SIXT, you are offered a meet-and-greet service, where someone will meet you at the SIXT desk in the arrivals hall. You will then fill in the required documents and be taken to your vehicle.
  • When you hire a car in Interlaken, you will find that the resort town gets very busy with tourists and locals. Due to the fact that it’s a busy town, you can expect tourists to cross the road in areas that aren’t designated pedestrian crossings. This is in spite of the jaywalking rules that are in place, so drive with care. There are also lots of cyclists in Switzerland, with Interlaken being no exception. Drive with vigilance and check your mirrors regularly.
  • When you book Interlaken car hire, you will see the town can get very busy, especially during rush hour when locals commute to and from Bern for work. Rush hour is normally from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., so if you don’t want to drive on busy roads, it’s wise to avoid these times. Route number 6 is one road that gets especially busy, as it goes through the centre of the town. Unless you have to, it’s wise to try and avoid this road.
  • Book your car hire in Interlaken at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

Pick up in Interlaken very efficient … Also the telephone operator who coordinated our decision to leave the car at Zurich airport rather than Interlaken was extremely helpful and efficient. The drop off at Zurich airport was quick , efficient and convenient, being in the same building as the departure areas.
