ZURICH CAR HIRE - CAR HIRE IN ZURICH SWITZERLAND

Zurich Car HireZurich Car Hire – Getting around Switzerland by car is quite easy as most of the traffic signs are similar to the ones used internationally. Many are self-explanatory. The minimum age to rent a car is 21 years old. If you are renting large car or luxury car the minimum age is 25 years. Drivers must possess a valid license issued at least one year before the date of rental.

Take note, to drive on the right side of the road while in Switzerland. Traffic coming from the right has the right of way, unless indicated by road sign. Driving on the Swiss highway requires a Vignette, a road toll. Most cars rented in Switzerland come with the Vignette, but not those from another country. This Vignette can be conveniently purchased at the custom, post offices and petrol stations.

Parking a Car in Zurich is difficult and expensive as compare with other Swiss cities. All of the Old Town and certain part of the central commercial district are totally off limit. It is advisable to check with the hotel, which you are staying in advance for parking space. Some of the hotels offer free or discounted parking space.
