Our brand new rental car broke down just as we passed through Geneva.  We were on the freeway for 4 1/2 hours before a tow truck came and got us.  I'm not kidding.  Budget had the worst customer service people answering their phones.  They couldn't even arrange for another rental car, they say we could either spend the night in this little town for which they would only give us 79 Euro, which wouldn't even pay for a 1 star place or they would give us train passage back to Paris. 
Our savior was the garage mechanic, he called Avis and got them to transfer our contract to one of their cars.  Then he drove us to the train station so we could pick up the new car at the airport.

We finally get to Interlaken after midnight and when we work in the morning we were in this beautiful valley.
