Follow the sign to park the car in the return area.  There is a drop box where the customer should leave the copy of the rental agreement and the keys.  The vehicle remains the renter’s responsibility until it is checked in by an Enterprise employee the next business day.

Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection (CDWTP) reduces the liability of the renter in the event of theft, attempted theft or damage to the bodywork of the vehicle, provided the vehicle is used in accordance with the terms and conditions of the rental agreement. If CDWTP is not included in the reservation, the renter has full liability for the vehicle. CDWTP is available for purchase if not included in the booking.

If included in the reservation, the excess amount ranges between 1500 CHF and 5000 CHF depending on car class. Excess will be charged every time a vehicle is damaged. Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection is not insurance.

Renters wishing to discuss or dispute any matters concerning damage to the rental vehicle should contact our damage recovery department on claims@enterprise.ch.

All rentals where the vehicle is not returned to the same location as it is collected from will be subject to a one way fee. 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.
