If you want to be flexible and safe while driving in Winterthur, it is recommended to take out a suitable insurance for your hired car. Look at the different offers and compare the prices so you can travel cheap through Winterthur. You come to the city for a short visit? In this case, take a look at the day policies . If the trip is longer, annual policies are recommended.
The deposit you pay secures any damage to the car hire company's vehicle. With most car hire companies, you therefore need a valid credit card. Thus, you are always on the safe side with accidents or vehicle thefts. Consider to load the credit card early enough before the rental with the appropriate deck sum.
The one-way rental is especially useful if you pick up the hired car directly at Zurich airport or Winterthur and set offfor a round trip. Then you don’t have to return it there but conveniently at another location in Switzerland. Thus, you have the freedom for a leisurely road or city trip without annoyingly having to drive all the way back just to return the hired car again.
Not only you as the main driver are allowed to drive the rented car, but also additional drivers, provided that you have specified them on site at the car hire agency. This is especially convenient when you set out on a longer trip. You as the main driver pick up the car on site and pay the deposit with your credit card. If you do not specify your additional drivers and there is an accident, the insurance won’t pay.
If you cover your hired car with full coverage without deductible, you will enjoy complete protection. If a vehicle is stolen or there is an accident, you do not have to bear any additional costs. However, there are some insurance companies that charge handling fees if a claim is made. Do not disregard that not every damage is covered by the comprehensive insurance without deductible. Therefore, take a close look at the AGB of your provider or ask for it directly.
