Discover Lugano and its surroundings with a hired car

You have the possibility to travel to the popular destination Lugano, which is located in Switzerland, with a hired car cheaply! At Lugano-Agno Airport you can pick up your hired car at the car hire and explore the surroundings with it. Cars can also be rented directly in the city. Enjoy the mild climate and drive by car, which you can hire online in advance, to the fantastic bays around the lake and enjoy the wide cultural offer.

Drive to church San Rocco by hired car

As soon as you have picked up your hired car at the car hire company, you are free and independent. Nothing stands in the way of your discovery tour. The church of San Rocco is an important monument of religion in Lugano. It was built in the 15th century and is almost still in its original state. Hence, it was able to keep its original appearance. However, the real treasures are hidden behind the walls, such as the altar, which is also 500 years old, and the wonderful frescoes. With your hired car, which you have picked up at the car hire, you will then continue to the next sights.

Travelling comfortably and cheaply by car to Civico Park

You can hire your car online, in advance and then use it for a trip to Civico Park in Lugano. It is located in the historic quarter and is surrounded by interesting old streets. He is also lined with monuments. In this park in Switzerland, open air concerts have been held in summer for many years. This has become part of the tradition of Lugano. The name of the park comes from the palace of the same name. It is also located there and is one of the most spectacular buildings in the city. There you can relax perfectly before going to the other places of interest, which you can easily reach by hired car. There are also numerous hiking trails and recreational areas near by.

Insidertips - up to the restaurant by car

You're looking for an original restaurant? Then you should take your hired car to Ristorante Vetta, which is located on the city's local mountain. Alternatively, you can also take the cable car up or use the hiking trails. Once you have reached the top, you can enjoy the breathtaking views of the lake and the Alps. The view of Lugano is also fantastic. If the weather is particularly nice, you can even see the Valais and Bernese mountains and the Monte Rosa. Pick up your hired car at the airport or in Lugano and travel around the area.

Hire a car cheap and choose the right insurance

Hire a cheap car from one of our dealers in Lugano:

  • Auto Escape
  • Auto Europe
  • Avis
  • Budget
  • CarDelMar
  • Europecar
  • Sunny Cars
  • Tui Cars

If you want to explore the area with your hired car, you should choose the appropriate insurance for it beforehand. Adapt these to your personal requirements so that you are optimally protected. The length of your stay in Lugano, for example, also plays a role. A day policy may be useful for a short trip, while an annual policy is recommended for longer trips or regular stays. Pick up your hired car from the airport or city car hire and discover the beauty of the city.

Hire a car cheaply and pay a deposit

With the deposit, the car hire company ensures that damage caused by accidents or the like is covered. They usually require a valid credit card, with which you can then pay the deposit. There are also car rentals that block the deposit amount on the credit card. The deposit will of course be returned to you if there is no damage.

What's the deal with one-way rental for your hired car?

The one-way rental is especially interesting for you if you are planning a round trip through Switzerland by car. Then you do not have to return the vehicle at the Lugano airport, but can return it to another location.

Register additional drivers for the hired car

In addition to you as the main driver, you can register additional drivers, who are then also allowed to drive the vehicle. This pays off especially on long journeys. If you want to take turns while driving, you must specify all additional drivers. If this does not happen and damage occurs, insurance cover is no longer available, which can quickly become expensive. When booking online, you do not need to specify the additional drivers. You only need to do this on site at the car hire company in Lugano.

Full insurance without excess for your hired car

If you choose fully comprehensive insurance without a deductible, you will enjoy the best protection. In most cases, you do not have to pay anything extra in the event of damage or theft. It is possible, however, that not all damages are insured. Please inform yourself beforehand.
