Pickup rental car in Germany and drop off in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are doing a Europe trip in late May where we will fly into Amsterdam stay a few days, then take a train to Cologne and pickup a rental car and drive down the Rhine. My first plan was to end in Freiburg, drop off the car and take a train to Lucerne where we would stay for 3 days and then take a train to Zurich airport and fly home from there.
I checked and it would be $250 more to keep the car, take it into Switzerland and drop off at Zurich airport. I know the gas would be an extra charge, and you need to get an Auto Vignette in Switzerland.
I am thinking it would be nice to drive around in Switzerland. I also know for the time we would be there we could take a train to most places we would like to go (such as Mt. Pilatus).

I would appreciate any thoughts on this
