Car insurance in Switzerland

I am moving to Switzerland in January for 16 months where i will be working. I am an 18 year old with a full UK driving licence that i have had for less than a year.
I would like to find out if i am able to get car insurance out in switzerland and if my UK driving licence will be ok for the 16 months that I will be in swirtzerland. Do i need to get a swiss licence? If so, what do i need to do.

Thank you very much...

Phil.s

I think you will find insurance much easier & cheaper than in the UK!

Re: Car insurance in Switzerland

I think there is no prerequirements to get car insurance (other than having a drivers' license). However, the younger (less experienced) a driver you are, the more you will pay. Just try www.comparis.ch to find the cheapest insurance for you.
