IMPORTANT. It often happens that at the moment of receiving the car receipt, you may be requested to provide your personal credit card. To find out in advance which card you need, carefully read the Payment Methods section in the document with rental terms.

Deposit and credit card information


You have read the terms and found out that the credit card is really needed, but you do not have it? Before you do anything, check the type of your current debit card on www.bindb.com. Some banks issue credit cards as debit cards with zero limit. If your card is one on them, you are very lucky. It is also suitable for booking.

Speed limits

All the rumours that travelling across Switzerland by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:

Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.

Traffic violation fines

The lion's share of fines, which are received by travellers who came to Switzerland, are superimposed on them for non-compliance with the traffic rules. Be attentive and law-abiding. And in order not to get a fine being a pedestrian, you should be aware of the most significant monetary punishments in the city:


It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.

Toll roads in Switzerland

There may be toll roads on your way; you may move around them quickly and without traffic jams. You can pay to use them using cash or card.

Car return in other city

To find out the possibility and cost of returning a rented car in another city, check the box "return to another place" and search for options. In the search results, only those rental companies will be displayed that allow you to return cars to another location. The price indicated on our website already includes the one-way tariff.

Extra payments at the rental office and possible taxes

When you rent a car via the cars-scanner service, you get a full turnkey package without any additional fees. The only exception is the countries, in which a fee or a tax is required by law.

However, you may choose options that are not included in the basic rental package, for example, a child seat or additional ski equipment storage. You will find out their price in advance and will be able to pay on website, at the rental company office.

We organized a trip to Austria and rented a car for this purpose. We chose a standard car, and went to travel. We got a lot of new and interesting. We rented the car via this resource and were very satisfied, as we received a large package of options. Payment without fees was also made on the site. There were no problems with the car, both during the receipt and the return.

I always travel alone. I get where I need and rent a car. Then I go where my heart wants. I like it very much. Once I failed to rent a car. After that, I began to use the services of online providers. This particular resource suits me best of all. I recommend it.

On the advice of my good friends we went on a road trip around Austria. We got great impressions and an opportunity to see a lot of interesting things. We rented the car at home via CarsScanner. Due to this search engine we had a journey in an excellent car for modest price. We paid for the car via this site.
