Drivers Age and Licence
Minimum age is 21 years, and must have held a full drivers licence for a minimum of 1 year (3 years for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes). No maximum age. A higher minimum age of 25 years applies for all Family Luxury & Premium Class Vehicles.

Additional Drivers
Maximum of 2 drivers per vehicle.

Vehicle Age
All vehicles are less than 3 years old.

Late & Early Dropoffs
If the vehicle is returned after the time that was agreed in writing, we charge CHF 38 for every extra hour or part of an hour (but not more than the total daily rate for every day late) and pass on any claims for compensation for damages that may be asserted by the next renter or another person due to a late receipt of the vehicle. If the vehicle is returned before the expiration of the agreed rental period - there is no refund for unused days unless the vehicle can be rented to another party.

Parking at Depot
Car Parking is available at most depots free of charge. Please enquire with us for more details.

Security deposit / Refundable bond
The security deposit of CHF 1,500 (Comprehensive Coverage) / CHF 500 (Partial Coverage) must be paid at the start of a rental. Refunded if the vehicle is returned in a proper condition and after the final settlement of the rental contract by McRent HQ.

Liability and Comprehensive Insurance Protection
The renter bears the costs of any damage that occurs during the rental period while using the vehicle in accordance with the contract up to CHF 1,500 per damage.

CHF 1,500 - Comprehensive coverage with a deductible of CHF 1,500 per loss

CHF 500 - Partial coverage with a deductible of CHF 500 per lo

If the damage is caused by intent or gross negligence, especially if the renter was unable to drive due to the consumption of drugs or alcohol, the liability limitation does not apply. The same applies to any damage caused by not observing traffic sign 265 (maximum vehicle height on a road). Despite the agreed limitation of liability, the renter is moreover fully liable for any damage caused by failure to observe the vehicle dimensions (vehicle height and width), by improper loading and unloading and by the load or by driving backwards without being directed.

The renter is liable for any damages claimed by a third party against him/her or against McRent that the renter has caused to a third party during the use of the object of rental. The renter is liable for all fees, levies, fines, and punishments that are imposed on the lessor in connection with the use of the vehicle unless they are caused by fault of the lessor.

Authorised Drivers
The vehicle may only be driven by the renter himself/herself and by the drivers specified in the rental contract.

Vehicle Return
Vehicle must be returned clean or a cleaning fee of CHF 129 will apply. If toilet is not emptied a fee of CHF 217 will apply.

Substitute Vehicle
In case the reserved vehicle cannot be made available at the rental station, the lessor reserves the right to provide a vehicle that is comparable in size and equipment or bigger. That will not cause any additional rental costs for the renter. If a smaller vehicle is offered and accepted by the renter, the price difference of both vehicles is reimbursed. If the provision of a bigger vehicle causes higher ancillary costs, such as ferry charges and tolls or operating costs, such costs are to be borne by the renter.

Trips Abroad
It is possible to make trips abroad within Europe. Any trips to East European countries are subject to the lessor's prior approval. Trips to any war and unstable zones are forbidden.

Pets
Dogs are not allowed in the vehicles.

Shortening of Rental Period
If a renter shortens their hire period by more than a week - it may be treated as a cancellation of the whole booking and a re-booking. This depends on when the amendment takes place and how many days of hire are being cancelled.
Please ensure you always have travel insurance in place.
