What Our Customers Say:
The service is good and quick. They had no diesel cars left, but we could choose from several gasoline cars. The only minus - too many scratches on all doors, roof ...2013-11-26Andrey
It was a little unclear at first after coming through passport control in the arrival hall, but found the rental place very quickly, bus service ok. Service was excellent, very friendly person, taking the time to explain the contract. I knew about the full tank of petrol, which I don't like, but have to accept. Also the insurance was explained. The car hire was very cheap so I wasn't expecting too much, the car had a few marks on it, but was in perfect working order. Tires could do with a renewal soon. The car was clean, radio working,so all in all I was happy.2013-11-26Marijke Phillips

A Quick Guide to... Montreux
Due to the town’s location near Italy it was an important settlement for the Romans, especially since it was close to their capital of Aventicum and Gaul. Because of this the town grew as a sort of ‘overspill’ to Aventicum. It was around the 19th century that tourism really started to become the main industry on which the local economy was based, with winter sports being especially important.
Aside from skiing the town also hosts the annual Septembre musical de Montreux festival, which showcases the best in local and national music and has been held every year since 1946. There is also the Montreux Jazz Festival, another annual festival held in July, which is known throughout the jazz world. The town was recognised for its preservation of its heritage in the early 1990s, when it was given the Wakker Prize for architectural heritage. Just by walking through the streets you will be able to see why it was given this award.
The climate in Montreux, as expected, is Alpine, with it very close to the Alps. This means a lot of snow in the winter, and temperatures as low as -2C in December and January. In the summer temperatures peak at around 25C, however these highs are very rare and the average is usually around 20C.
