Is wild camping in a motorhome permitted in Switzerland?

Wild camping in a motorhome in Switzerland or “overnighting” is strictly prohibited.

Do I need a special licence to drive a camper in Switzerland?

All drivers must have a current and full driver’s licence to hire a vehicle. If your licence is from the UK, it must entitle you to drive a category B vehicle up to 3,500 kg. For certain larger models, a category C licence is required.

For licences outside the EU, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is recommended in addition to your full licence.

Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.
