Top tips for renting a car at Zurich Airport

  • Ensure you go through the road rules before you leave Zurich Airport (ZRH). Some of the basic rules you should note include the speed limits. The general speed limit is 50 km/h in built-up areas, 80 km/h outside built-up areas and 120km/h on motorways. All occupants of the cars must wear their seat belts at all times, while children below 12 years or with a height below 150 cm must always be restrained in special seats. Drunk driving is a crime; hence a blood alcohol content above 0.50 mg/ml will result in prosecution. You can only use a phone when driving if it is on a hands-free system.
  • With car hire at Zurich Airport, you should choose the model of the car depending on the space and number of seats, to ensure your need are met. Consider economy, mini or compact cars if you do not require a lot of space for luggage or passenger. These cars include Volkswagen Golf, Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus. If you are looking for a model with more seats, consider the people carriers, including Ford Galaxy. These vehicles have space for up to seven individuals. Treat yourself to luxury or sleek convertible cars like BMW 5 if you wish to travel in style.
  • With car hire at Zurich Airport, you can easily access the beautiful scenes and attractions despite the season. You will enjoy the beautiful mountain ranges, glacial lakes, towering waterfalls and fairy-tale villages. Besides the obvious flexibility benefits, you can also enjoy extra breakdown assistance and out-of-hours returns. Companies like Avis will offer optional extras like baby seats, seasonal equipment and satellite navigation (GPS navigation). Ensure you reserve your baby seat in advance, if travelling with kids.
  • You will find it easy to return a hire car at Zurich Airport. The return parking spaces are located at the airport's terminal, close to the pick-up points. The car is expected to be clean, have a full tank and be in the same condition as the contract. Failure to meet the conditions may result in additional charges. You should also note that there will be an extra fee for a delay in the return. However, there is no refund for any unused days in case of an early return.

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.

Staff were very helpful at Zurich airport, they were also flexible to accomodate us with the change in our flight time and pickup-drop off time. the car was pretty new and very clean and in good shape.

Cons:

The Mini Cooper had the most uncomfortable seat of all the cars I have driven! I’m 180cm tall with an average body, although the drive be is fun but I don’t recommend this car for any drive longer than one hour, well this is not Hertz problem, I should complain to the car designers!!

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

Oct 2017

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.

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:

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!

Pick up in Kloten was quick and easy. I never like trying to be tricked into upcharging the price of my vehicle with add-ons such as extra insurance toll passes and such. These can double the price of your rental and your charge card covers you for the extra insurance. Having said that, we were charged over $550 for a scrape mark on the rear tire. Yes, a scrape mark. No damage to the rim and the tire was fine. We were only informed of this after we returned home. Unfortunately Avis, like almost all rental car companies are always out to "get you" with extra charges.
