We recommend that you read carefully through the following information before booking your tour. The following will give you more details about what the tour includes, your accommodation, driving in Switzerland and other useful information for your travels.
ABOUT OUR SELF-DRIVE TOURS
On a self-drive tour, Nordic Visitor supplies you with a quality rental car and a detailed personal itinerary. You act as your own tour guide and driver, and you get to pick the road trip music!
All your services will be pre-booked by your personal travel consultant at Nordic Visitor. This includes your rental car and accommodation in Switzerland as well as any activities specified in the itinerary.
As it is a self-drive tour, you get to pick when and where you want to stop based on your own interests. The highlights listed are suggestion, but you‘re in charge of your trip!
Rest assured that we’re with you every step of the way. You’ll receive personalised information, including an itinerary, map, and our very own Switzerland Travel Guide. Plus, you’ll have access to our 24/7 helpline during your trip should you need to contact us.
For your self-drive package, you can choose from single, double and triple rooms. Please note that in Switzerland room types are based on European standard sizes, which means they are smaller than in North America.
For example, a double bed often consists of 2 single beds pushed together. Twin rooms are 2 separate single beds. Triple rooms include a double bed along with an extra bed, rollaway or sofa bed. And single rooms are often smaller than the standard double.
If you have anything specific in mind, please contact us to discuss customising your accommodation options.
