AVIS Car Rental Services at Zurich Airport

Zurich Airport is a large establishment handling over 31 million passengers per year, and is located in the Canton of Zurich, approximately 12 km from the city. It is Switzerland’s largest airport, and a hub for the airline companies of Edelweiss Air and Swiss International Air Lines. The airport was also recently expanded, with a new midfield terminal built, and an underground-automated train for the transport of passengers from the main terminal building to the new terminal. Although buses are available from Zurich Airport, many passengers prefer to rent their own car, from car hire companies such as Avis. Avis is an international brand, offering competitive rental prices and a wide range of vehicles for hire.

At Zurich Airport, Avis can be found along with other car rental companies in the Airport Center, on level one of the terminal, and on the upper floor of the airport’s shopping area. Passengers arriving at the airport can arrange a vehicle directly from Avis’ rental counters, or in advance, from Avis’ website at www.avis.com. Online is the quickest and most convenient way to ensure your ideal car is ready and waiting for your arrival at Zurich Airport. Avis’ website is also a good source of information for the company’s rental procedures and polices, and the vehicles which are available at this rental location. It is a very busy airport, and therefore it is recommended to hire any additional item of equipment required in advance as well.

Avis offers their customers the hire of car seats and satellite navigation systems, and at this location, there may be luggage or ski racks available as well. Each of these items will add a small amount to the rental price per day of car hire, but may also be essential for the ease and safety of your journey in Switzerland. Babies and young children will be required to be securely seated within a vehicle, and for those who are unfamiliar with the roads in and around the city of Zurich, a GPS unit is ideal. The Where2 Satellite Navigation system from Avis has many features, such as continuous maps, a choice of languages and turn-by-turn directions in voice or visual mode. It may also come pre-programmed with the points of interest in the area, which makes it easier to find hotels, restaurants, fuel stations, pharmacies, tourist attractions and major business locations, etc.

Avis one way rentals are ideal for customers who will not be returning to Zurich Airport, as the rented car can be collected from the airport, but returned to another rental location. The drop-off location can still be within the city of Zurich, or even in another town or city in the country. Customers should confirm with Avis if one way rentals are available from Zurich Airport, and where the vehicles are allowed to be driven. There may be additional costs for the rental if the vehicle is returned to another city. At Zurich Airport, some car rental companies may offer hand controls for disabled drivers, and this device assists drivers who suffer from lower limb deficiencies. Hand controls operate the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle, and are usually hired free of charge.

The minimum age required to rent a car from Avis varies depending upon which vehicle category is selected. The majority of the car groups have an age requirement of just 21, but car groups H (Premium), J (Luxury Car) and P (Luxury Wagon) have a requirement of 25 years of age. Drivers should be 30 years of age or older in order to rent from car group I (Mercedes). A higher rental rate is charged for drivers between the ages of 21 and 24, as young drivers insurance will be applicable to the rental. A valid drivers license must be shown when collecting the vehicle, and customers may wish to arrange insurance for their rented car. Insurance such as Collision Damage Waiver, Theft Protection and Windscreen Damage Waiver are optional, but can be purchased locally from Avis in order to reduce, or even remove the insurance excess. Debit cards are not accepted at Avis, Zurich Airport, therefore a major credit card will be required. Avis accepts the following cards: American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard and Visa, but not the Visa Electron Card. Customers may also use their Avis Charge Cards for payments.

At this Avis rental location, there is a good selection of large, medium and small cars available, and customers can rent from a number of car categories. The smallest vehicles are found in the Economy category, and may be similar to the Skoda Fabia. This is a three-door vehicle, without much room for luggage, however, it will have a low rental price, and prove to be fuel efficient as well. Families may enjoy an estate vehicle from Avis, such as the Ford Focus C-Max, Ford Grand C-Max, Opel Astra or Volkswagen Passat, which is a Full-size Wagon vehicle with room for five or more luggage items. It is also an automatic vehicle. Alternative vehicles from Avis may be similar to the Opel Meriva, Renault Scenic and Opel Insignia, while larger vehicles seating seven or nine passengers are found in the Minivan and Full-size Van categories, and may be the Renault Espace 2.0 and Renault Trafic. Both of these larger vehicles have good space for luggage as well.
