Lugano, Switzerland: Hatchback Rental
The most popular models representing the mini, compact, and economy car segments in Lugano are: Smart Car, Chevrolet Matiz, Kia Picanto, Citroen C1, Ford Ka, Hyundai Getz and others.

When hiring a budget hatchback, it is definitely worth saving on insurance deposit (franchise). Deposits on small cars in Switzerland vary from 100 to 1.000 euro/dollars. Check the rental conditions of each car in your selection to find a vehicle with a minimum deposit.

If your routes in Switzerland are foreseen to pass through hilly areas or mountains, it is not recommended to consider very small cars for rental. Their engines are usually insufficient for a confident driving on the roads with long or steep climbs.

At the rental office in Lugano, consider to take a 'Breakdown Assistance' package or ask an officer for a contact data to use in case of a vehicle breakdown. Cheap cars are sometimes unpredictable in operation.

Upon receipt of the rental invoice, please check that all the information, as well as the final payment amount do match the data in your voucher. wishes you a safe and great trip to Lugano!
