NATIONAL Car Rental Services at Zurich Airport

Zurich Airport is the largest airport in Switzerland, and a very important gateway for the capital city of the country. The airport serves many tourists, as well as business passengers, and approximately 31 million passengers per year pass through the Airport departures. It is also known as Kloten Airport, as it is located especially nearby this area, and is also close to Oberglatt, Winkel, Opfiken and Rümlang. With the official airport code of ZRH, Zurich Airport is only 12 km, or 7 miles from the center of Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city, well known for its business activities, in particular for banking services. Many passengers arriving at Zurich Airport prefer to rent a car, from car hire companies such as National. National is a worldwide car rental company, popular for offering low car hire rates, and a range of services for their business and leisure customers.

At Zurich Airport, National Car Hire is found in the ‘Parkhaus’ 3 division of the airport, along with a number of other well known car rental brands. National’s hours of operation at the airport are from 06:30 to 23:30, and cars can be arranged directly from the rental counters. However, since that Zurich is a very busy airport, car hire can be in high demand, and therefore it is often recommended for passengers to make an advanced booking. The easiest and most convenient way of securing your ideal car is online, using the form above. On this website, customers will be able to view all the vehicle categories available from Zurich Airport, as well as find out more information regarding National’s rental services and terms and conditions. It is also recommended to hire any additional item of equipment needed for your holiday or business rental in advance. Items such as a satellite navigation system, baby seat or ski racks are subject to availability.

With National Zurich Airport one way rentals may be possible at this rental location, and are the ideal option for customers who will not be returning to Zurich Airport. A one way hire is when the customer will be able to collect his/her vehicle from the airport, upon their arrival, yet return it to another rental location. The return location can be in the same city, or in a different city, or even a different country. Customers planning on travelling further should confirm with National to where the vehicles are allowed to be driven. At Zurich Airport, one way hires may cost extra if they are returned to a different city. Another service offered by many car hire companies are hand controls for disabled drivers. Hand controls assist drivers with a lower limb disability, as they operate the accelerator and brake pedals of an automatic vehicle. From National, hand controls may include a steering wheel knob, but do not operate the car’s blinkers, lights, windshield wipers or other functions, such as cruise control. Hand controls are usually free of charge, but should be reserved at least 48 hours in advance of your arrival at the airport.

Vehicles from National are arranged in various car groups, and are not booked by their specific makes and models. Pictures of example cars can be seen on National’s website, and customers will receive a vehicle similar in size and characteristics. Categories containing smaller cars that are light on fuel, low on price and usually have a low minimum rental age include Mini, Economy and Compact. The Fiat Panda 1.2 is found in the Mini category, and is an ideal choice for city driving, and for single drivers or couples. It does not have much room for luggage, but comes with ABS brakes and a manual transmission. Economy vehicles are very similar, but slightly larger, and include the Opel Corsa, while Compact cars can be a little more fancy, with air conditioning. Compact vehicles also feature a manual transmission, and are similar to the Peugeot 108 1.6. It is also possible to hire a Compact Wagon, such as the Opel Astra Caravan 1.6, with space for four luggage items.

Intermediate, Standard and Full-size vehicles from National are more suitable for families, as they have more room for luggage, and are cars ideal for city or longer distance travels. Cars in these categories may be similar to the Renault Scenic 1.4, Renault Laguna 2.0 and Peugeot 607 2.0. The Peugeot is a Full-size vehicle, with an automatic transmission, power steering, air bags and air conditioning. One of National’s largest vehicles for hire is the Peugeot 807 2.0, seating seven passengers, while more elegant vehicles are a popular choice among business clients, and are found in the Premium and Luxury car classes. These cars are often manufactured by Mercedes. An additional vehicle category offered by National is SUV, featuring the Opel Antara 2.0.

At National, Zurich Airport, the primary renter is required to be at least 21 years of age in order to rent a car from the majority of car categories, however, specialty or larger cars may have a higher minimum age requirement. Younger drivers will also need to pay ‘young driver fees’, which is a small extra amount per day of rental, and per underage driver registered on the rental contract. This will apply to all drivers between the ages of 21 and 24. In most cases, a driver’s license from the renter’s country of residence will be acceptable, but sometimes an International Driving Permit is required. Customers will however be in need of a major credit card, such as American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, MasterCard or Visa, in order to pay for the rental period.
