Unless a cancellation guarantee was arranged, swissrent will charge 50% of the corresponding booking/payment (excl. discount and credit notes). The renter may reduce the cancellation costs by concluding a 5% cancellation guarantee when reserving rental material online; this amount will not be refunded in the event of cancellation. The difference between the amount already paid and the cancellation costs will be immediately refunded to the renter’s credit card.
No rental fee will be refunded if the rental material is collected late by the renter or if it is not collected at all for any reason whatsoever. The same applies if the renter returns the rental material to swissrent early.
Unfavourable weather or other impediments beyond swissrent’s control shall not create an entitlement to cancellation. In the event of an injury or illness on the part of a client during the rental period, the following shall apply subject to the submission of a doctor’s certificate: a) the rental fee will only be refunded if the rental material is immediately returned to swissrent following the illness/injury. b) if point a) is fulfilled, any excess rental fees will be refunded as of the issue date of the aforementioned doctor’s certificate. No refund will be paid without a doctor’s certificate. c) as soon as swissrent becomes aware of the illness/injury as well as points a) and b) are fulfilled, it will refund any excess rental fees. A refund under points a), b) and c) will only take place if a cancellation guarantee has been arranged.
Claims of any kind relating to a reservation must be addressed to swissrent in writing immediately upon receipt of the booking confirmation. In the event of later claims, the Customer shall bear the full loss resulting therefrom.
Extended benefits such as changing to a higher category, additional rental equipment etc. can only be arranged locally with the swissrent rental partner in question. In the event of a change to a lower category, there will be no refund/reduction of the price.

This sum is to be paid directly at the location.
Identity card, passport, driver’s licence or credit card shall be acceptable as a deposit guarantee.
