Hi everyone. I have question regarding rental car in Switzerland.

I finally know which car and from what site we will book. But I read in their term and condition about the requirement. They said the driver must bring and show id card/passport, driver lisence and credit card. And they said the driver must have held those documents at least for 1 year. Is that mean for international driver lisence too? Because, I will make my international driver lisence or permit this coming week. And we will be in Switzerland in October. So my international driver lisence will not be a year old yet. Can I still rent a car there?

Anyone can help? Thank you 🙏🏼😊

Hi Audy,

No worries. You can show both your international drivers' license as well as your local license. The rental company just needs proof that you have been driving for longer than 1 year.

Regards,

Anna

An International Driving Permit is just a separate document that has information copied from your home country license which thus confirms - via an agreed international document - your driving license status in your home country.

Hi again, Anna 😊

I was so worried that I have to postpone my trip or change the plan.

So basically, I just have to show both lisences, local and international?

I am affraid to lose the money if I failed to bring all the correct documents.

Thank you very much.🙏🏼😊

Hi Audy,

That's right. You just need to present both licenses when you pick up the car.

Ok, I understand.

Basically, International Driving Permit works with my local driver lisence.

So, the plans still go 😀🙏🏼

Thank you everyone for the info. I'll contact again when I have more questions. 🙏🏼😊
