Bern Airport car hire is fully available from the Bern-Belp Airport which gives easy access to the motorway network. Bern is well situated in Switzerland, offering good access to the central and western parts of the country, and a bus links the airport to the excellent rail system from Bern. Grindelwald, Wengen and Interlaken are within an hour and a half given good conditions. Cars hired at Bern Airport will be equipped with a vignette (allowing access to Swiss motorways), and over the winter are winterised - which means winter tyres between November and April and normally a set of snow chains (check this with your car rental company).
Bern is the capital of Switzerland and the seat of their Parliament. Bern's old town historic centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage List and features 4 miles of arcaded walkways along streets lined with clock-towers and fountains.
Make sure you compare your car hire excess insurance through MoneyMaxim to get both a great price and deal, and avoid paying the hiked up price at the rental desk!
