Trouble with Lucerne to Salzburg van rental - and Swiss pass question

Jump to last reply

I'm looking at renting a van for 8 people next summer to get from Lucerne to Salzburg. Our intent is to spend 2 days making our way slowly with stops in Liechtenstein and at the castles around Garmisch. I haven't gotten to the point of calling rental companies (that's next) but have tried just about every US and European rental company and I can't even rent a simple car for that pick up/drop off combination (much less a van). I expected there to be an extra fee for the different countries...but not a total lack rental ability. Does anyone have any advice? Maybe Lucerne is too small for much rental ability...maybe train up to Zurich and rent there?

One other question that is related - if we have Swiss passes and the last day is our departure day, will the pass cover a train trip from Lucerne to a city just on the other side of the border in Austria where we could then rent a car with pick up/drop off in the same country. Now, exactly which Austrian City that is remains to be seen. The question - is there a charge for taking a train out of Switzerland on a Swiss pass and getting off in Austria. And if there isn't...how far into Austria could the Swiss pass leg get us before charges apply?
