    They are also your contact for maintenance and any warranty or wear-and-tear work that may be required.

  • VEHICLE AVAILABILITY.

    In principle your selected vehicle should be immediately available. If you wish to collect the vehicle yourself, the delivery time will be approximately 10 working days.
  • VEHICLE COLLECTION.

    We will inform you immediately when the vehicle is ready to be collected and arrange a delivery date and location with you and the BMW partner. Unless otherwise agreed in the booking agreement, you must collect the vehicle at the specified delivery location from your BMW dealer at your own expense on the agreed date.
    When collecting the vehicle, the following is very important:
    • please have your valid identity card and driving licence with you! These documents are checked during the handover process. If this check is not possible or fails for other reasons, the car cannot be handed over to you.
    • Your car's tank will have been filled (or the battery in an electric vehicle will have been charged) enough so that you can drive 100 km.
    • During the vehicle handover, an expert employee of the BMW partner will inspect your vehicle and record any damage and the completeness of the safety equipment. Please check for any visual defects yourself. In order to avoid misunderstandings, these will be documented with photos.
  • VEHICLE RETURN.

    At the end of your contract period, you arrange an appointment with the BMW Partner for the return of your vehicle. Unless otherwise stated in your booking, you return your vehicle just as independently as you collected it. You have a buffer of 5 working days for the return. This means that after the end of the contract period, you still have 5 working days to complete the return of your vehicle with your BMW partner.

    The return of your BMW after the end of the term is possible without any problems. All you need to do is contact our Service Team at least 10 working days before you wish to return your vehicle. We will organise the rest for you: support@bmw-abo.ch or +41 (41) 525 82 10.

    Your vehicle must be cleaned inside and out. If it has any previously unknown damage or defects, you must show these to your BMW partner when you return it. Do not worry about signs of use that are commensurate with the age and mileage of the vehicle. When taking back the vehicle, the BMW partner will again write a protocol, which they will sign if both parties agree.
    You will find everything you need to know about keeping the vehicle return process fair here.
  • CHANGE OF PERSONAL DATA.

    A one-off start-up package of CHF 299.-(currently CHF 0.-) is charged for the provision and handover of the BMW when you take out each BMW subscription. If you would like to change your BMW in the subscription, you must terminate your existing subscription with a notice period of 3 months and conclude a new contract.

    The start-up package of CHF 299.- (currently CHF 0.-) is charged again for each booking.
  • SECURITY DEPOSIT.

    As security, we will collect a deposit equal to one month's subscription charge. We will retain this in the event of a payment default.
  • MILEAGE PACKAGES.

    You can choose from five different mileage packages:
    • S (500 km/month),
    • M (800 km/month),
    • L (1,250 km/month),
    • XL (1,500 km/month), or
    • XXL (2,000 km/month).
    The more kilometres you drive, the cheaper your kilometre price becomes. More kilometres driven are billed monthly. Less kilometres driven will be credited for the next month. An overview can be found in the customer login.
    If you drive less or more kilometres, you can change your kilometre package at any time once a month free of charge, but your remaining kilometres from the previous month will be forfeited.
  • SERVICES INCLUDED.

    Your BMW subscription package price includes all costs and applicable fees for the operation of your vehicle
    • maintenance,
    • wear and tear,
    • fully comprehensive and partial comprehensive insurance,
    • seasonal tyres,
    • motor vehicle tax,
    • motorway vignette.
    The monthly price is based on the mileage package you book: S (500 km/month), M (800 km/month), L (1,250 km/month), XL (1,500 km/month), or XXL (2,000 km/month).
    You only need to cover the costs for liquids such as

    The kilometres you drive are logged directly from the vehicle using mileage data and billed monthly. If you drive less in one month, you can carry forward the kilometres paid for to the following month. The data is used only to  bill the kilometres travelled; we do not share it with third parties.
  • EXTRA KILOMETRES.

    If you drive more kilometres per month than your package includes, each additional kilometre will be added to your monthly subscription fee according to the price per extra kilometre shown for your chosen package.
    Tip: You can change your mileage package at any time in your customer account up to 24 hours before the closing date of your next billing cycle and thus book a higher or lower monthly mileage package.
  • CREDIT CHECK.

    As aborats are instalment payments, this means for us that we enter into a longer-term relationship with you as a subscriber. That's why we want to know beforehand what we're getting ourselves into, so we run a credit check during the booking process. This way we know that you will be a reliable subscriber. For you, it has the advantage of protecting you from unwanted debt.
  • PAYMENT METHODS.

    Payments can currently only be made via credit card.
