Car Hire in St Moritz - Useful Information

St. Moritz Overview

St. Moritz is a luxury alpine resort town in Switzerland's Engadin valley. Renowned for hosting two Winter Olympics, its world-class reputation is founded on its sophisticated hotels, sports facilities, and stunning mountain views. The town is famous for its winter sports but also offers various summer activities, such as hiking and mountain biking.

Driving in St. Moritz

  1. Traffic and Parking: St. Moritz is a compact town and easily navigated by car. However, during peak seasons, especially winter, the town can be crowded. Parking is limited in the center, but there are several parking garages and lots available.

  2. Rules: As with the rest of Switzerland, you'll need a motorway vignette to drive on Swiss motorways. Ensure you're familiar with the local driving regulations and speed limits.

  3. Tolls: The main roads leading to St. Moritz are not tolled. However, if you're driving on the motorways in Switzerland, remember the vignette requirement.

  4. EV Charging: St. Moritz, being a premier destination, has several EV charging stations, including at major hotels and public parking areas.

  5. Fuel: There are petrol stations in and around St. Moritz where you can refuel. Prices might be a bit higher compared to lowland areas due to its remote location.
