Car rental insurance in Switzerland

We could not find a policy for this destination and residence combination
So you’re renting a car in Switzerland. Of course, no one wants to think about car rental insurance when taking in the splendor of the Matterhorn, but buying rental car insurance before you go could save you thousands in repair costs, so it’s worth doing. At RentalCover.com, we’ve built a global business around giving customers better coverage at a better price. And we pay 95% of claims within 3 business days (upon approval), so you can save your CHF for extra pots full of hot cheese.

These are our top tips for outsmarting your car rental company.

Buy insurance before you go and save

If you don’t want to be on the hook for costly scratches and dings, let alone collision damage, buy rental car coverage before you go. With us, you’ll pay a fraction of the cost of insurance at the rental desk.

Capture the condition of the vehicle

Take pictures & videos of the vehicle before you leave to avoid unfair charges. Ensure any existing damage is marked up on the rental agreement as some cheeky rental companies tend to charge customers for existing damages.

Just say 'no'

If you've bought Full Protection with us, you can say 'no' to the hard sell for roadside assistance from the rental company.

With Full Protection...
  1. Notify your rental car company of the damage immediately. They will advise next steps.

  2. When your rental is finished, submit your claim at rentalcover.com/claims. You will need these documents.

  3. We pay 98% of claims within 3 business days, but do keep in mind that settlement times may differ.

  4. If your rental company provides you with a new vehicle, your RentalCover.com policy will also cover the new vehicle for the duration of your policy provided it’s a like-for-like exchange. You do not need to notify us of the vehicle change.
