Bern Driving Information

All Bern Belp Airport rental cars are automatic transmission.

Bern Driving Stress Level: 6/10

Drivers in Switzerland drive on the right-hand side of the road and, because of the winter darkness, most people keep their headlights on dim even during the day. Drivers wishing to use motorways in Switzerland are obliged to purchase a small sticker or vignette which is displayed on the windscreen to indicate to the Swiss traffic authorities that the appropriate poll has been paid. If you are caught without a vignette there is a mandatory fine of 100 Swiss Francs.

Swiss road systems are generally good and extend across the length and breadth of the country. Driving enthusiasts will be able to enjoy many scenic routes around Switzerland taking in the towering snow-capped Swiss mountains and refreshing Swiss meadows along the way. However, those intending to drive in Switzerland in winter months should be aware of the heavy snowfall and make preparations accordingly.

All cars in Switzerland are fitted with snow tires or snow chains for obvious safety reasons. Because of the Swiss government’s ecologically minded policies, driving in Switzerland is not a cheap experience with drivers having to pay comparatively high prices for road tax and parking, especially in Switzerland’s main towns and cities.
