What is the fastest way to get to the car hire counter at Zurich Airport?


The car hire counters are located in the Airport Center, Level 1, and are accessible by elevator or escalator. After your arrival, simply follow the signs " Hired Car". It will take you about 10 minutes to walk from the terminal to the hired car center.

If you are in a hurry after landing, you can opt for the express rental service. For this you can already register online before the rental, so that you save time at the counter. You can simply select your preferences in the search mask under "Included services" at Driveboo. This way you can design your hired car individually according to your wishes.

Do I have to pay tolls in Switzerland?


In Switzerland there is a compulsory vignette on freeways and national roads. Depending on the hired car provider, the vehicle may already be equipped with a vignette. You will find more detailed information in the rental conditions.

At some places, such as bridges, tunnels or passes, an additional toll is charged. This is usually not included in the rental price of the hired car and must be paid directly on site.

In any case, make sure that you have a vignette for the hired car. In case of violation, very high fines will be imposed.

Can I drive with the hired car to Germany or Austria?


Car hire trips across country borders are generally possible but depend on the vehicle type and rental company. If you would like to drive from Zurich Airport to Germany or Austria with a hired car, please read the rental conditions under the heading "Cross-border trips" or "Border trips".

If a cross-border trip is possible, register it either directly when booking via the field "Message to our service team" or with the rental company on site when accepting the hired car. Additional fees may apply.

If you have planned a longer road trip, you can also take turns driving the hired car. To do so, simply register an additional driver with the local car hire company. In some offers, an additional driver is already included in the rental price.

What do I have to consider when returning the hired car at Zurich Airport?


Remember to refuel the hired car before returning it, depending on the fuel arrangements. The drive from the center of Zurich to the airport takes about 10 minutes by hired car. The nearest gas station is located directly in front of the airport, so you do not have to search long.

To return the hired car, follow the signs "Departure/Hired Car Return". The return is located in the parking garage "Parking 3". Have the condition of the hired car documented and take the protocol with you. The return can take place at any time, even outside opening hours. Simply leave the key in the key box provided for this purpose.

What extras are included in the rental price for my hired car at Zurich Airport?


Extras such as a navigation device, snow chains or a ski rack are already included in the rental price, depending on the offer. You can specify other extras such as a child seat when booking in the reservation form under the item "Included services" or alternatively in the field "Message to our service team". The applicable fees for this can be found in the rental terms and conditions and are usually payable upon acceptance of the hired car on site.

In addition, the price of the hired car always includes liability insurance. On Driveboo you can arrange your hired car individually for your trip in Switzerland. That way, no wishes remain open.
