ALAMO Car Rental Services at Zurich Airport

Zurich Airport is located in the Canton area of Switzerland, which consists of a number of regions, including Kloten, Rümlang, Oberglatt, Winkel and Opfiken. Since that the airport is partially located in Kloten, it is often referred to as Kloten Airport. The city of Zurich is just 12 km, or 7 miles from the airport, and is the largest city in Switzerland, and the country’s capital city. Zurich Airport handles over 31 million passengers per annum, and is a hub for airline carriers such as Edelweiss and Swiss International Air Lines. Visitors on holiday or business find that a rented car is the ideal form of transport from Zurich Airport, and choose a vehicle from car hire companies such as Alamo. Alamo Rent A Car is known for their excellent customer service and wide range of vehicles for hire.

Zurich Airport consists of two main terminal buildings, and third midfield terminal that has been more recently constructed. Transport between the terminals is provided by the Skymetro, which links the E Gate to the main Terminal A, as well as by airport trains running between Terminal A and Terminal B. Passengers can therefore easily move around the airport buildings. Although a large airport, which can sometimes be hard to navigate, the facilities within the terminals are well signposted. Once passengers have collected their baggage, they can proceed to arrange their vehicle from Alamo’s rental counters at the airport, or those with an advanced reservation, can collect their vehicle. An advanced reservation ensures peace of mind in knowing that your car is ready and waiting for your arrival.

While choosing your vehicle, be sure to include any additional items that may be required, such as a baby seat or satellite navigation system. Alamo may also need to know if you will be returning the vehicle to their Zurich Airport rental location, or to another town or city. A one way hire may cost a bit extra if the vehicle is being returned out of the city of Zurich, but is a useful option for those who will not be driving back for a departure flight from the airport. Customers, who will be returning their vehicle to Zurich Airport, can follow the signs indicating ‘Departures, Rental Car Return’. Parents of a baby, or young child, will know that an appropriate seat for the journey is an essential requirement, and a GPS unit is extremely useful for those unfamiliar with the city, and surrounding areas.

Disabled drivers at Alamo may request the use of hand controls at Zurich Airport. Hand controls assist individuals with a lower limb deficiency, and may also come equipped with a steering wheel knob to facilitate handling of the vehicle. The hand control device will operate the accelerator and brake pedals of an automatic vehicle, and should be reserved in advance of your arrival at the airport. The equipment will not usually come with any additional expense to the rental.

At Alamo, Zurich Airport, the primary renter is expected to be at least 21 years of age to rent from the majority of the vehicle categories available. However, certain categories such as Premium, Luxury and SUV may have a higher minimum age requirement. These categories contain specialty type vehicles, which are generally more luxurious than other rented cars. A Premium vehicle may be similar to the Mercedes C 2.0, while the Opel Antara 2.0 is an example of an SUV. The primary renter, and all drivers listed on the rental contract, must show a valid drivers license from their country of residence when collecting the vehicle. The driver should also have held the license for at least a year prior to the rental date, or even two to three years before the rental of a larger or specialty vehicle with a greater minimum age requirement. The renter’s local license is usually accepted, but foreign renters may need to have an International Driving Permit as well.

Smaller cars hired from Alamo include the Fiat Panda 1.2, Opel Corsa 1.4 and Peugeot 308 1.6. Although not of a great size for carrying large or many luggage items, these smaller cars may have features such as ABS brakes and air conditioning, and are easy to drive, light on fuel and generally come with excellent rental prices. Larger vehicles are hired from the Midsize, Standard and Full-size categories, or even the wagon categories, with vehicles such as the Opel Zafira 1.8 and Peugeot 407 2.0. Estate cars such as these will seat up to five passengers, and store six luggage items, therefore they are a good choice for families requiring a more spacious vehicle. An even larger car is the Peugeot 807 2.0, with room for seven passengers.

Alamo Rent A Car has over thirty years of experience in the car hire industry, and is mostly well known for providing rental cars for holidays around the world. However, they also offer a comprehensive Corporate program, with benefits such as unlimited mileage on round-trip rentals, flexible billion options, priority counter service, frequent traveler benefits and guaranteed low rates throughout the year. There is also a dedicated corporate reservation desk, for easier vehicle arrangements. All customers of Alamo can apply for a Quicksilver membership, and benefit from simplified reservation and rental processes, counter bypass options and special members-only deals.
