SWITZERLAND MOTORHOME RENTAL SPECIALS: If you place your Switzerland RV rental booking request with IdeaMerge online, our software will apply any relevant specials from the RV hire vendor as well as our own IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount.
We use our buying power to offer you big savings versus booking direct.
Book early to secure availability. Many clients book their Switzerland motorhome hire holiday months in advance. Moreover, said discount tends to be higher the earlier a camper rental booking is made.
Also, check out our Switzerland RV Rental Customer Reviews page, where you can both read and post RV rental reviews.
Our modern, light, diesel-powered RVs eat Swiss mountains for lunch.
And the RVs are so well designed and appointed, you can fairly consider them Swiss chalets on wheels.
There is no better way to experience the Alps than by RV.
So what are you waiting for? Book a Switzerland motorhome rental with us today to travel Switzerland and the Alps in general with the utmost comfort and facility.
We recommend you rent the smallest RV you think will be comfortable. The narrow roads through villages and over mountain passes in Switzerland and elsewhere in the Alps are suited to small motorhomes and camper vans.
Make sure you fully understand how everything in your rental RV works before you start your RV tour of Switzerland and beyond. Greywater is emptied in RV parks. Blackwater is contained in cassette toilets, which can be emptied at RV dump stations (or even in public restrooms). These cassettes need to be emptied every two or three days.
A great many well-equipped campgrounds are located throughout Switzerland. Most Swiss campgrounds feature electrical connections (i.e. powered sites), toilets, hot and cold showers, washing machines, and a small shop selling relevant camping supplies.
Switzerland measures just 220 kilometers north to south, and 350 kilometers east to west — dimensions that lend themselves to leisurely RV travel but which are wonderfully complicated by some of the most beautiful mountains and valleys on the planet and by the diverse geographies and cultures associated with the three prime Swiss languages: German, French, and Italian.
Zurich is Switzerland's largest city, with a population of about 400,000 and a greater metropolitan area of nearly 2 million inhabitants. The city is located about 30 kilometers north of the Alps, on the northern tip of Lake Zurich.
A motorhome rental or campervan hire is a truly wonderful way to get off the beaten path in Switzerland. Leave behind the crowds that move by tour bus and even by train or car and which flock to the hotels. Combining a motorhome or camper van rental with the magnificent and unique real estate and outstanding RV travel facilities Switzerland offers: it's a magical recipe for a trip of a lifetime.
RV rental and travel is even popular in the winter of Switzerland. It's an awesome way to tour the Swiss ski resorts. Some Swiss mountain passes are closed in the winter but plenty are kept open. You can book snow chains with your camper rental. And the rental RV will be equipped with snow tires. Yes, there is a functional kitchen, shower and toilet in these RVs during winter. What's more, the vehicles stay nice and warm at night.
Apart from our IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount, the prices and policies presented on the IdeaMerge website match the prices and policies of our suppliers. You aren't paying extra by going through IdeaMerge — in fact you're paying less, thanks to our unilateral, QUANTUM discount.
IdeaMerge facilitates the whole RV rental booking process, presenting a single total cost you can count on — and acting for you as an accessible resource and, if necessary, as a mediator.

Many factors determine the cost of a motorhome or campervan rental in Switzerland. The factors affecting the RV rental cost include RV size, rental rate seasonality (or whether the rates are so-called flex rates instead re-determined daily or weekly based on supply and demand), and the optional extras you select (many and varied).
For exact total costs, submit a Search above. Our online order software will then present to you all the RVs, whether motorhome, camper van or truck camper, ordered by total price.
If you then click on a RV thumbnail image or on the "More Info" text link adjacent to that image, the software will present the following info specific to the RV and dates:
Many optional items are available for hire with an RV rental, and these greatly affect the total cost. The optional items (e.g. camping table and chairs, bedding, shuttle transfer) are presented during our online order process, along with selectable pick-up and return times.
In many cases the RV rental company offers an inclusive package that bundles together a set of optional extras for one relatively low price. Again, don't worry about those packages. Just select à la carte the options you want and our software will apply an inclusive package if such is available and if such package indeed gives you a lower price than actually paying for the options à la carte.
Similarly, RV rental companies often offer specials that involve optional extras. Such specials can be complicated and hard for customers to understand. Again, our software is carefully programmed and maintained to automatically apply any specials that benefit you.
We think our software is unique in terms helping our customers optimize their RV rental and minimize their costs in these important respects. Our aim is to provide you with the best value and to increase our sales as a result.

We do NOT charge a booking fee. On the contrary, we discount our prices far below those of our suppliers.
Likewise but more uniquely still, we do NOT charge a credit card transaction fee. Most of our competitors charge a credit card transaction fee of about 2%! (They bury mention of that fee deep in their Terms and Conditions; search those terms for the word "surcharge" or the phrase "credit card" to see their surcharge acknowledged.)
Furthermore, we do indeed charge your card in the currency you choose above. Thus no unwelcome suprises will be consequent of the charge. The charge in that currency will post to your account in exactly the amount we quoted; and no foreign currency transaction fee from your credit card company can apply to the charge.
We use our guaranteed Super Saver Exchange Rates — meant to be the best retail exchange rates available out there — to arrive at that guaranteed amount (i.e. if your currency is indeed different than the supplier's currency).
To be sure, our Super Saver Exchange Rates are NOT the interbank (i.e. wholesale) exchange rates which the big banks give to each other and which are typically the rates presented by Google and financial websites — and commonly also by our competitors, to give misleadingly low quotes — but they ARE the best rates you as an individual consumer can take advantage of. This is to say, our exchange rates are meant to be considerably better for you than the rates which Visa or MasterCard and the banks use to translate foreign currencies into cardholder currencies.
Most uniquely we offer three payment options in relation to currency, one of which options you can select during our online order process:
Rob, Karen and Sarah Stewart, CanadaThis was our first trip to Europe and also our first camper rental. We only had eight days to travel in Europe, and our trip included delivering our daughter to school in Schladming, Austria. A camping trip en route seemed very appealing. We found IdeaMerge through an Internet search, and through them, we were connected with DRM. From our first correspondence with Mark Carr of IdeaMerge, we found them to be both most helpful and prompt in answering our questions. The quote provided us was both accurate and comprehensive, and even included bedding. Read More
Roy and Cindy Zimmer, USAMy wife and I just got back from our third trip in Germany and surrounding Austria, and Switzerland using IdeaMerge as our agent. We had a great trip and again were very happy with our motor camper and the DRM rental depot near Frankfurt. That location is so easy to get to. It is within walking distance of the first train stop. The train ride is less than 5 minutes and the walk is about 15. Of course you can take a cab to and from the airport. We enjoy the walk after a long plane ride. The weather in mid September has always been great. We visited 11 different campgrounds in our 13 night stay. Make sure you bring your GPS with European database. We will use IdeaMerge again as the staff are very helpful and I like dealing with a smaller more personalized company. After this 3rd trip I cannot imagine touring any other way. It is so nice having your bathroom with you all the time and your kitchen. Read More
The Benoit FamilyPeople tended to respond incredulously to the idea that our family was going to tour the Alps in a motor home. "You're going to what? Really ?" seemed to be the most common response. And we had our own doubts too. Would the RV be a piece of junk? What would the campsites be like? How would I do driving a motor home in the Alps or on the Autobahn? According to the internet, the Europeans vacation this way all the time; could we Americans make it work? [T]he short answer to all these questions is that we had a great time and experienced Europe in a way that few Americans do. Read More
It all adds up to savings and peace of mind.
