KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Zurich

  • Whether you are coming to Zurich for business or leisure, you can take advantage of cheap car rentals in Zurich and travel around at your own convenience and pace. The historic Schloss Kyburg castle is nestled above the River Limmat is one of the top attractions that you should consider visiting while in Zurich. Renting a car during your stay also allows you to reach as far as St. Peterhofstatt (St. Peter’s Church), which is home to the largest clock face in the whole of Europe. Renting a car in Zurich allows you to explore the city at your convenience, and we strongly recommend booking one through KAYAK.
  • There are five airports near Zurich, with the nearest being Zürich (ZRH). This airport is approximately 6 miles from the city center. Some of the car rental companies you will find at this airport include Sixt, Hertz, Avis, Europcar, Alamo and Budget. Most Zurich car rentals have pick-up and drop-off points at the Zurich Airport. Additionally, you can opt for free shuttle services to and from the city center, pick up your rented car and drive off to your hotel.
  • Driving in Zurich is pretty much similar to driving around other European cities. You can expect occasional traffic snarl-ups. Most Zurich streets are quite narrow and finding parking may be just as challenging as finding a needle in a haystack. And if you are thinking about visiting the Alps, be ready for one-way traffic. That said, remember to turn your lights on while driving both at night as well as during the day. Also, keep in mind that you will be driving on the right side of the road. This means that you will be overtaking on the left side. There are not many roundabouts in Zurich and Switzerland as a whole. However, it helps to know how to navigate the few that are there. Finally, the speed limit in residential zones is 12 mph. The speed limit on highways can be as much as 75mph. Do look out for designated speed limits while driving around.
  • Discover the scenic city of Zurich and its beautiful landscape conveniently with a car. The quickest and easiest way from the airport, which is situated over 6 miles from the center, is by renting a car. Switzerland is among one of the most popular European countries for road trips, as it stuns visitors with its beautiful landscape, well-maintained roads, and lovely little villages dotting the countryside.
  • The easiest way to get in and around Zurich is to rent a car from one of the on-site airport car rental services upon arrival at Zurich International Airport. The rental center can be found in the Airport Center on Level 1, where cars from companies like Alamo, Enterprise, and Europcar await you. Follow the A1L into the heart of Zurich and let your fun in Switzerland begin.
  • Zurich is, like many European cities, very old and was built before cars were used, so inside the city streets tend to be narrow and parking is scarce. The city also has many one-way roads, which makes navigating a bit of a challenge at the beginning, so using a satnav or mapping out the route beforehand is a good idea. During peak hours in the mornings and evenings (around 6-8 am and 4-6 pm), congestion can occur and driving through the city during these times is not advised.
  • Switzerland has many gems to offer, and exploring the country by car allows travelers to find the best places. Street conditions in Switzerland are among the best in the world, but driving through the Alps, especially in wintery conditions, can be challenging for people who are not used to it. Drive slowly and make sure the rental car is properly equipped. Drivers who opt for an automatic car should familiarize themselves how to adapt speed for long, steep roads.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Zurich for C$ 78 or less
  • Book your rental car in Zurich at least 6 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Zurich are around 117% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Compact rental cars in Zurich are around 43% cheaper than other car types, on average

Purchase additional coverage before getting to the desk or have a credit card that covers that
Verified travelerJun. 2023
Driving in Switzerland is a bit more fluid as there a a lot of yields as opposed to Stops. Learn the rule of the right if you are driving out in the country. And make sure you stay in the right lane of the freeway unless you are completing a pass.
Chim HunAug. 2023
Driving in Switzerland is amazing that all drivers seemed friendly and helpful to foreign drivers.
Verified travelerJun. 2023
Driving in Zurich is a little stressful, I take public transport for almost everything. I would only book a car for accessing rural areas outside of town.
JamieJul. 2023
Carve out enough time in your schedule for a 30-50min. wait to pick up the car
GregoryJun. 2023
Ask your hotel where parking is allowed and if overnight parking is okay.

Verified travelerMay 2023
Zurich was fine, the service at airport was great
LesleyMay 2023
Take pictures before you leave their desk, dont be pressurized into taking any extra insurance, especially at the time you book the car , and make sure before you leave the USA what your credit card will cover. This is a crooked business that most car rental companies are involved in. In a different country, we were told the insurance that we bought at the time of booking was useless, rubbish, and covered nothing.

The car was good, however, the girl at the counter failed to inform me that there was a cap on the km I could drive, even tho she asked me where I was heading. You would think they can easily calculate the KM in their booking system. I've requested a refund for the extra charge, under the transparency consumer laws in Switzerland. So dodgy.

Tons of hidden cost and basic insurance doubled the cost of the car we were originally quoted $400 for the entire trip with everything they wanted to charge $1600 to my card. I wasn’t planning for that much And wasn’t able to pick up the car.

My worst experience in rental cars in a decade. I have rented cars across many countries and continents and ironically the worst experience was in Switzerland. There was missing information in the pick up. They lied about insurance of the car in the pick up. The insurance value was a daily amount and not a single amount like they mentioned. Also they overcharged 20CHF due to a reason they could not figure out at the dropoff and couldn't repay in it! needed to write an email to complain and still waiting for the money

They charged me EXTRA on my credit card BEFORE I took delivery of the car even after I was assured the payment was made in full ( no balance owing). Upon return of the vehicle, they found a very minor nick in the windshield. I have attempted to have this resolved over MANY emails and keep getting the 'run around", even after they admit that the overcharge at the beginning was their mistake. They have considered the case closed and are with holding the money they mistakingly charged to my account ( the money owed is more than a windshield repair ) I will NEVER deal with Hertz Rental again.

How can any words describe the experience I received??? Online the quote I agreed was £330 for 5 nights hire of a mini convertible. On the day I arrived I was told this figure was not correct and I should now pay £400 plus an additional £135 for insurance. Ok insurance fair enough, it’s high but it’s still a choice, but why the additional £70 above quoted price, which by the way stated includes ALL fees! However it get far worse, on the final day our flight was cancelled so I emailed asking to extended my booking 1 day… A new invoice arrives… £780!!! So what started at £330 ended up at £780… take off the £135 for insurance that’s an un-expected increase of £315 for an additional days hire… Oh and what did the advisor say at the airport… ‘Welcome to Switzerland, get used to it!’ Complaint raised, but of course no response…

So collection of the vehicle at Zurich, had to wait in line because only one staff member on duty. Not given paperwork on allocated vehicles condition. Informed was being upgraded to next sized car, of which I did not want as I booked an economy car to save fuel (as a result i spent more on fuel because of upgrade). Told no economy cars available!!!! Got to vehicle, which was covered in scratches, dents, marks etc (is this why I wasn't given the paperwork on condition of allocated vehicle). Informed lady in enterprise office who gave out the keys, wasn't interested in this car and told me to take photos of scratches etc and report them on the return. Told me she was too busy to look at vehicle (outstanding) During the use of this vehicle I was not impressed. Having returned vehicle at airport with full tank of fuel, and placed keys in security box, I have to this day received no confirmation from the company of the vehicles return, nothing. Not really good enough, and not what I paid for

Pros:

Staff were very helpful, price was great, pick-up/drop-off was straightforward. They didn't have the car we had reserved so we were given an upgrade for free.

Cons:

Called ahead to let them know we would be 1-2 hours late with drop-off for which we were charged an entire day. Not a big deal but pro-rating would be more reasonable I think.

The staff were helpful enough but they didn't work for Dollar

Cons:

The insurance advertised was terrible - it covered nothing and when called they said "we are not a car insurance company" They should NOT be advertised as viable insurance on the Kayak website - this is seriously irresponsible. When we got stuck, the 24 helpline was shut

Poor pick up instructions: No mention in email of where/how to pickup. No mention that Thrifty was at Hertz counter. Very small Thrifty sign that I missed. Airport info desk told me to take a shuttle to holiday inn?! I wasted a lot of time finding the pickup.

Cons:

I wish I had been given the Volvo that Thrifty shows in the pictures. The actual car we get is always a much smaller and simpler model, unfortunately. However, the car only had 10km on it, which was a plus.

KAYAK

Pros:

We had reserved a car through Thrifty many months before and had worried about adequate luggage space as our daughters were joining us for the second week of our trip to Switzerland. Had also researched the waiver/insurance situation for an overseas rental and had some anxiety about it. Both agents were very helpful, flexible and patient while we made the decision ax to model. She offered us a selection which suited us well. She also accepted our coverage on our Cap One VISA, which I had researched thoroughly beforehand.

Cons:

It was clear that any unrecorded scratched on the car would be a liability for us, so we were careful to use the flashlight on our phones and go over the car carefully when we were in the checkout process. It is very important that you take the time to do this AND Mark die anything you see and take it BACK into the desk fir them to record. I know you are in a hurry to get moving, but this is ESSENTIAL. And research your particular credit card coverage carefully; if it isn’t complete, you may be in a tough situation and might do better paying the waiver. Ask what deductible your coverage is; you want ZERO.

The lady at hertz counter made us wait for 30 mins. Last time the same insurance costed me 20 chf on the counter this time she charged 37 chf and when asked why is it more expensive than last time she said at counter is expensive. No briefing of the car type and features were mentioned. Poor service & unfriendly staff

Pros:

We liked our vehicle once we finally got what we thought we were getting. They did work with us on switching vehicles but we're not very happy about it.

Cons:

The photo showed on line was iof a large van, not a minivan. We were paying about $1,500, which is a lot money for a rental vehicle. There were six adults and seven pieces of luggage. We traveled with the same group a couple of years ago and knew we needed a larger vehicle. However, when we got to Avis, they tried to send us with a minivan. We went back to the counter and they reassigned us vehicles four different times! It was a painful and lengthy process. In the end, we finally got an in between size vehicle, which worked out fine. It's just too bad they didn't give us what was pictured initially. We end up spending the first two hours of our vacation trying to get our rental vehicle straightened out, which was rather irritating for all of us!

Pros:

When I booked, the airport was not a drop off option. We picked the car up in Florence and was a one-way drop. When we got to the city location in Zurich, the attendant told us we could return at the airport, no problem, he reviewed the vehicle issues we had, made notes & programmed the airport location into our gps. Airport drop off was quick & easy.

The car was great. Fuel efficiency is one of my main criterion and this car was excellent.

Cons:

The drop-off location in Milano Centrale was hard to find in a little street very congested and not that near to the train station. I had to run to catch my train.
