Car Hire Biel/Bienne - Book Here Today!

Biel or Bienne is a town in the canton of Bern in Switzerland. It is the home of Swiss watchmaking and there is a watchmaking museum where you can trace the development of the craft. Biel is also the start of a cruise known as the ‘Three Lakes Cruise’ starting from Lake Biel and heading into Lakes Neuchâtel and Murten. You could take your hire car from Biel to try something unusual – quality Swiss wine from the vineyards nearby. Biel is also at the foot of the Jura and a funicular railway takes you up to the top of Magglingen. Uncover the beauty of Biel and its surrounding regions with a rental car from Rhinocarhire. With our diverse fleet of vehicles, you'll have the freedom to explore this dynamic Swiss city and its picturesque surroundings at your own pace.
