If you are travelling in Switzerland with your hired car, which you can hire cheaply from the car hire company of your choice, you should also note that rail vehicles in towns and villages have the right of way on equal roads.
You have got several options from where you can pick up your hired car; depending on where you start your stay in Switzerland. You have the option to collect the car directly after landing at the Zurich Airport. This enables you to start your trip flexible and you will benefit from not having to pay extra for a taxi or train to Zug. The distance from the airport to Zug will be around 45km.
The other option would be to pick up the hired car in the city centre of Zug, at the local hired car station.
For those who want to do a trip through Switzerland with a hired car, the one-way rental might be the best option. This means that you can pick up your hired car at the location of your choice and return it conveniently to another location. This is particularly useful if you are heading for cities that are far away from each other, such as Zurich, Lucerne and Basel.
What does the additional driver option actually mean? If you specify another person as an additional driver when booking, you can take turns driving the hired car. Distances in Switzerland can be very long, as you can also experience the neighbouring countries, such as Italy and France with your hired car. If only one person drives the hired car, this can be quite exhausting. So that the driver can sit back and relax, too, you can simply hand over the steering wheel to the additional driver.
