KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bern

  • Car rentals in Bern provide you with the flexibility to discover the city and its surroundings on your own schedule. With a rental car, you can conveniently visit popular attractions such as Old Town, Rosengarten, Bear Park (BärenPark), and Gurten at your leisure. Having a car allows you to maximize your time by efficiently exploring multiple destinations within a shorter timeframe, without being constrained by public transportation schedules or relying solely on taxis or rideshare services.
  • Bern Airport (BRN) offers a convenient option for Bern car rentals. The renowned rental car company SIXT operates at this airport, providing a reliable and accessible service. You will find a dedicated service desk for SIXT conveniently located near the baggage claim area in the arrival hall. This ensures a streamlined process for completing the necessary paperwork upon your arrival. Once the rental process is finalized, you can easily locate the rental cars parked just outside the terminal in the designated parking lots. Renting a car from Bern Airport enables you to quickly embark on your exploration of Bern and its surrounding areas.
  • Pedestrians in Bern have priority at designated crosswalks. Always yield to pedestrians when they intend to cross the road and exercise caution. Bern has an extensive tram and train network. Be aware of tracks and exercise caution when driving near tram lines to avoid accidents. Roundabouts are common in Switzerland, including in Bern. Familiarize yourself with roundabout rules and give way to traffic already inside the roundabout.
  • Weekday mornings, typically between 7:30 am and 9:00 am, may experience increased traffic for car rentals in Bern as people commute to work and school. The city center and major routes such as A12 (Autobahn 12), Belpstrasse, and Wankdorffeldstrasse may be busier during this time. On weekday afternoons, usually between 4:30 pm and 6:00 pm, you may encounter heavier traffic as people head home from work. Areas around commercial centers, business districts, and popular lunch spots may experience increased traffic during lunch hours, generally between 12:00 pm and 1:30 pm.

If you plan to explore the surrounding areas or venture into the Swiss Alps, renting an SUV provides more storage space and better handling on mountainous roads.

These vehicles typically offer advanced features, more spacious interiors, and higher-end amenities.

Outside built-up areas, the speed limit is typically 80 km/h (50 mph). On expressways and motorways, the speed limit is generally 120 km/h (75 mph). However, keep an eye out for variable speed limits displayed on electronic signs, which may reduce the speed limit during certain times or conditions.

  • Where are some good places to park in Bern?

    There are plenty of large parking lots in the city that can make great choices. The Rathaus P3 lot offers about 2h of parking for around 7.20 CHF (8.35 USD).

Pros:

Nice car, great location, GPS included.

Cons:

It took > 30 minutes to resolve a difference in rate between the Kayak promised price (which I had in an email) and the rental price that was at the Hertz desk in Bern. This should not have been a problem if Kayak's process with Hertz was clear.

Everything went very well and I can not think of anything that would have made the rental better. Pick up was very smooth and a good experience as was the drop off. I would rent with you again.

9.2 Wonderful

Sep 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

Friendly, helpful staff. No nonsense. No pressure when I told the agent I had already purchased insurance. There are weird laws about EU citizens driving Swiss cars into the EU -for which I think they may want to charge you more and give you an EU car - but fortunately that didn't apply to me with my US license. I had a horrific, straight up fraud experience renting from Sixt at Ljubiana airport in 2014 and swore I'd never use the company again. Friends in Bern insisted Sixt in Switzerland was good and I tried the company out again. I was glad to see they were right.

Cons:

I'd never driven a Renault before and had no opinion about the brand going in. Now, I can say I'd never buy one. The automatic transmission is poorly designed, the shut off switch that stops the engine at traffic lights functioned far from optimally, USB charging was a joke, and the navigation is very slow to load. This is all not Sixt's fault, other than that they chose to buy cars of that brand
