Car hire across borders

Jump to last reply

We have 10 days in Bavaria in June and then want to travel on to Lucerne in Switzerland to pick up the Golden Pass. We're going to do the area of Munich and surrounds for 4 days and Berchestgarden for 5 days but no preference currently on order.

We were going to get the train to Lucerne but its 6-7 hours by train if we come from Berchestgarden and we have a baby with us so thats just too long without a car seat to sleep in. Its not much less time from Munich and we'll probably stay in Landshut so its further than Munich.

We'll be hiring a car in Bavaria so could drive to Lucerne and drop the car off there but I've heard its hard to do one way car hire ending in a different country. Does anyone know a way of doing that? Either that or drop the car somewhere in Germany on the way to Lucerne and continue on the train......is there a town near the border that would work? I would be keen to do Neuschwanstein Castle so if we could incorporate that, that would be good.

Thanks
