Ease of booking. Great carWe were unable to get a satisfactory answer at the time of car pick up as to whether the rental included third party insurance. We declined fire, theft insurance because our Visa card supplied that. When we asked about third party we were told everybody's private insurance covers that and we did not need it. When we looked on our receipt it stated that we were offered third party insurance and declined it (we did not). When we looked on the insurance form in the glove compartment it says third party insurance is covered. On the Sixt website, it says that third party insurance is included. On car rental sites in Switzerland it says that third party insurance is mandatory. I'm glad we weren't in an accident and had to find out whether we were covered or not.

As everything in Switzerland, the rental cost was expensive.

I actually got the car I booked, and the staff were friendly and competent.
9.6 Excellent7 Aug. 2019
fast, friendly service. good price.A "leave the key and go" drop-off service, instead of queueing also with customers that were picking up the car.
9.6 Excellent19 Apr. 2017
Pleasant tripExcellent rear view camera, cruise control operable, low consumption modern car, accurate navigator.Car book was not in english. Navigator voice orders disabled (could not discover how to activate). A brief introduction from staff at pick up would be helpful
8.0 Excellent10 Oct. 2016
all fineNice price for what you get and easy going of reservation etc.Too small remarks: Reserved the car Saturday evening for pick up at Rue du Simplon. Went there but nobody was there yet and in the emd had to go to Place du Tunnel to get the car. Overloaded parking lot for drop off, leaves you feel a little bit uneasy to park the car there.
9.6 Excellent30 Aug. 2016
no clear directions for where to go to drop off keys
6.8 Good21 Aug. 2016
Lack of Transparencythe surprise 50chf for mandatory insurance upon arrival was not appreciated. Your competitors list this up front and although your method got us to rent from you this time, this experience has left us with no desire to use Hertz in the future. Transparency is a virtue which is respected on the consumer side but obviously used for financial gains on yours

Car hire excess insurance in Lausanne

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Lausanne car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Lausanne.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Lausanne car rental.
