Top tips for hiring 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 hire services upon arrival at Zurich International Airport. The hire 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 hire 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 a car hire in Zurich for £32 or less
  • Book your car hire in Zurich at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Zurich are around 81% cheaper than airport locations on average

Where are the best places to park in Zurich?

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.
