Hi Teeoxo, welcome to MySwissAlps!
Indeed a car is not essential in Switzerland, and often it can even be a hindrance if you try to use it in larger cities like Lucerne. Zermatt is car free, and the Jungfrau region south of Interlaken is largely car free too so you would not need a car there either. This page might be helpful: myswissalps.com/ carversustrain.
Another option could be to drop off your car at the German border and pick up another one in Austria, so you won't pay the rental fee (and possibly parking costs) for a car you don't use.
More on train travel and passes to save money can be found here: myswissalps.com/ train. There is a 4-day Swiss Travel Pass that may fit your needs. Feel free to get back here with further questions.
