  • All rentals where the vehicle is not returned to the same location as pick-up will be subject to a one-way fee. Domestic and international one-way rentals are permitted to selected locations and must be pre-booked or authorised at the time of pick-up. The one-way fee varies based on car category, location and pick up date. The exact amount of the one-way fee will be displayed during the reservation process when entering the dates, desired route and car category.

If a vehicle is returned with less than a full tank of fuel the renter will be charged for the difference plus an additional fee of 50 CHF. VAT and local fees and local surcharges will apply to fuel charges.

  • Personal Accident Cover
    Our Personal Accident Cover provides you with financial compensation in the event of an accident with your rental vehicle or while getting in or out of the car. This coverage applies to the registered and named driver as well as their passengers for the duration of the rental. Coverage amounts: Up to CHF 30'000.00 per person in the event of disability, CHF 15'000.00 in the event of death.

The credit card of the renter must be valid at least 6 months from the rental drop off date. Deposit amount on a single credit card authorization will include the amount of the rental and 500.00 CHF for car groups up to and including intermediate, 1000.00 CHF for all car groups above intermediate. The deposit will increase when optional extras are purchased locally. The purchase of Super Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection - SCDWTP - will not result in a lower deposit amount.


  • Roadside assistance protection (RAP). Alamo provides roadside assistance to the renter. This includes a 24-hour emergency service including provision of a replacement vehicle in case of lost vehicle key, shipping of the key, on-site assistance in case of tire breakdowns, towing service, forced unlocking of the vehicle if the keys are locked inside, jump-start assistance, and refueling service up to 5 liters. Roadside assistance is available in almost all European countries; the current list of countries is available at the rental branch at the time of rental. By checking the appropriate box on the front of this form, the renter undertakes to pay a flat-rate fee that covers all roadside assistance services. Roadside assistance is also available without payment of this flat-rate fee; it will then be billed according to actual costs incurred for each assistance service rendered.  Roadside Assistance Protection is an optional product; before purchasing you may wish to check if your personal coverage is adequate.  If you decline RAP then you will be required to pay any applicable charges and seek compensation from your carrier. RAP is not insurance.

  • All drivers, renter and additional drivers, must produce a valid driving license at the time of rental.  In addition to a valid driving license, the primary renter must further produce two proofs of address, an additional photographic identification - i.e. passport, and a major credit card in their own name.  Proof of address - i.e. utility bill, credit card bill or bank statement - must be no more than three months old. Multiple-part driving license holders must produce all parts of their license.  An international driving permit is required for anyone holding a non-European driving license. Additional ID or further identification checks may be requested if deemed necessary.  This may include an identity check with external partners who may check details supplied against databases to which they have access.

  • Supplementary Liability Protection SLP (Third Party Liability) cover is required by law and included in all rates. Coverage limits: Third party bodily injury and or death as well as third party property damage up to 100.00 MIO. CHF.
