KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Montreux

  • When opting for cheap car rentals in Montreux, you get to enjoy this cultural Swiss resort town with whimsical freedom. Beautiful landscapes filled with attractions, you can witness Lake Geneva like never before. Explore locally and see the fascinating history of the town, or venture further afield and see parts of Switzerland best explored by car. For example, the Col de Jaman is a road-trip worth taking. This stunning mountain pass is based in the western Alps and has a narrow, winding road that will give you spectacular vistas for miles. Explore some of the nearby areas such as the Medieval village of Greuyers, located just to the north of Montreux. Other areas worth seeing by car are Geneva, Gstaas and Zermatt.
  • When you book your Montreux car rental, you will find the airport has the widest selection. If you are landing at Geneve-Cointrin Airport or coming in on the train, it is easy enough to reach with about a 1 hour drive on average. Book on KAYAK and land immediately with Thrifty, Alamo, SIXT, Europcar, FLIZZR, Budget and Dollar at your service.
  • When driving cheap car rentals in Montreux, you will find a variety of roads that range from sleek, well-maintained motorways, to narrow, winding mountain trails where only one car can pass. Where you drive will depend on your plans, but for the most part driving in Montreux will present a pleasurable experience behind the wheel. You will drive on the right side of the road, keep buckled up and you will be charged for tolls when using motorways. The blood alcohol limit is lower than most of Europe at only 0.25%. You will also be expected to drive with your headlights on at all times.
  • Driving in Montreux will present challenges that are unique only to the area. The Montreux Jazz Festival is one of the biggest in the world. Held every July, it brings thousands of visitors to the resort town. Whether they are driving or not, the added numbers contribute to congestion and pedestrians in the roads, so always keep your eyes peeled. The weather is moderate in summer with winters presenting snow. On the small mountain trails, you will need to be in charge of your vehicle and confident on the road. Animals are quite commonly seen crossing even larger roads in the hills of Montreux.
  • Book your car hire in Montreux at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Montreux are around 65% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Montreux?

    With cheap car rentals in Montreux, take your itinerary into consideration before booking your vehicle as the terrain is so vastly different within itself. If hills and mountains are your thing, then while the power of a 4x4 may seem enticing, the chances are the roads will be too narrow to comfortably see you passing other cars. A good economy or Sedan is great for the region and will serve you well on the motorways as you travel between towns.

  • What is the speed limit in Montreux?

    Note that pedestrians always have right of way when at a pedestrian crossing, which is why 50 km is recommended for inner city driving in Montreux. Cars will stop for pedestrians even when they are merely approaching a zebra crossing, meaning if you are speeding, you may end up rear-ending someone. When you venture out to main roads you can put your foot down a bit to 60 km on main roads, 80 km on connector roads and 90 km on highways. The fastest you can drive is 100 km on the expressway.

  • Where are the best places to park in Montreux?

    Parking is notoriously scarce on the streets in Montreux. It is even suggested that if you have a hotel you should only use cars when exploring beyond the urban centre of the resort as you will land up walking so far anyway. You will find a bunch of car parks all quite close to each other on the lakefront such as Parking Montreux Market, Parking du Parc Donner and Parking de la Gare, but these may even belong to private companies or buildings. Nonetheless, if you pay the fee it should be fine to park your Montreux car rental here.
