Top tips for renting a car in Zurich

  • 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$ 55 or less
  • Book your rental car in Zurich at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Zurich are around 40% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • In order to deal with the mountainous regions and snowy weather (if visiting in winter), a 4-wheel drive car is a wise choice. When driving around in Zurich a lot, opt for a compact car, as parking spots can be hard to come by and many streets are narrow.

  • All speed limits in Zurich are given in kilometers per hour. The general regulations allow up to 50 km/h (31 mph) in residential, built-up areas and 80 km/h (49 mph) outside residential areas. Expressways allow up to 100 km/h (62 mph) and on the freeway there is a maximum speed limit of 120 km/h (74 mph). Speed always has to be adapted to weather conditions.

  • The average price for gas in Zurich is around CHF2.30 per liter ($2.32 per ¼ gallon, or $9.28 per gallon). Bear in mind that many gas stations, especially within the city, close at 10 pm and open again at 6 am in the morning. Highway gas stations tend to be more expensive and should be avoided if possible.

  • Parking inside the city can be an exhausting undertaking and, if your hotel does not have a parking space included, it is not advised to seek parking inside. Many parking spots are reserved for residents and metered parking is very expensive. Find one of the P+Rs in the outskirts of the city and travel into Zurich with public transport, or opt for one of the city garages.
