How it works

1. Register

Register for a one-off fee of CHF 25. All you need is a driving licence that is valid in Switzerland for cars with manual transmission and a credit card. Your membership card will be sent to you by post within two working days. The membership card allows you to reserve and drive Catch-Cars in all cities in which Catch a Car is available.
Enjoy even greater peace of mind with Catch a Car: our Catch Zero offer for CHF 99 per year means there is no more policy deductible to pay in the event of a claim (instead of a maximum of CHF 1'200 per damage claim). You can sign up for Catch Zero right away when you register. 

2. Reserve

Book a Catch-Car via app. You can book a Catch-Car directly on site using the QR code by holding your smartphone up to the checkpoint on the windscreen. The Catch-Car can be reserved for a maximum of eight hours in advance at the parking rate. (Note: For trips to and from the airport, a flat-rate fee of CHF 10 is charged in addition to the journey rate).

3. Get in, set off and parking

Get in

Open the Catch-Car using your membership card. Hold the card up briefly to the checkpoint on the windscreen. You’ll find the ignition key in the key holder underneath the glove compartment.

Set off

Drive wherever you want: move freely outside the zone, and travel to neighbouring foreign countries. When you have finished using the car, leave it in an authorised parking space inside the zone. You’ll find the parking rules on the relevant city page.

Parking

You can stop off during your journey. Parking is free of charge on parking spaces inside the Catch-Car zone where a local residents’ parking permit is required. Use the key to lock the Catch-Car on an interim stop. This ensures it stays reserved for you.

4. Finishing a trip

When you have finished using the car, leave it on an authorised parking space inside the Catch-Car zone. Please be sure to replace the key ring in the key holder when you are finished with the Catch-Car, and lock it using your membership card at the checkpoint. The reservation period is now over. (Note: When finishing a reservation period at the airport, a flat-rate fee of CHF 10 is charged in addition to the journey rate).
