The danger of used cars
Used cars are extremely popular in Switzerland: nearly 900 000 vehicles change hands every year. But buying a second-hand car almost always comes with risks.
You will have to put up with larger repairs, be aware of clocked cars, have a very close look at the sales contract and haggle for the price and warranty. Even if you do save money at first, your second-hand car will always bring insurance costs, taxes and a lot more effort and expenses.

Your alternative to a second-hand car: a car subscription.
If all that sounds like too much effort and uncertainty for you and you would prefer a modern alternative to a used car, we have exactly what you need. We have developed our car subscription model so that you only need to think about driving – and we take care of the rest.
How does the car subscription work?
The Clyde car subscription works like any other subscription, from public transport to your streaming provider: you pick a car and a kilometre bundle, give us a few details, and two weeks later, you will be driving your car already – for at least three months and then as long as you want.
No paperwork, no stress.
Our car subscription really is as simple as it sounds. When you buy a used car, you also get a mountain of paperwork. With us, you don’t have to take care of anything. We register your dream car in your canton, take out insurance for you and even pay for service and tyre changes.
This means you pay a flat monthly rate and have complete control over your spending. There are no nasty surprises. And if your life situation ever changes, you can simply switch to a ifferent car and subscription type or cancel your subscription altogether with 30 days’ notice after the first three months.
The latest models.
Here’s the best thing about the Clyde car subscription: you don’t drive a dated vehicle. Instead, we offer a wide variety of the latest models at a fair price and with a range of accessories. You will be driving the exact car you pick when taking out your subscription. We don’t do categories.
