SIXT Car Rental Services at Zurich Airport

Zurich Airport is located approximately 12 km, or 7 miles from Zurich, the capital city of Switzerland. Zurich is also the largest city in the country, and the financial and business center of Switzerland. The city’s airport handles over 31 million passengers per year, and is a hub for a number of airline companies, such as Edelweiss Air and Swiss International Air Lines. Zurich Airport is the largest in Switzerland, and is considered to be an important gateway for both business clients and leisure travelers. In terms of transport, trains, buses and taxis are available from the airport, but may passengers prefer to drive their own rented car. Sixt is one of the major car rental companies present at Zurich Airport, and many renters are fond of Sixt’s unique car rental services and reasonable rental rates.

Zurich Airport, often referred to as Kloten Airport, has three terminal buildings, and a wide variety of facilities for arriving and departing passengers. Passengers in need of a rented car will find Sixt on Level 1 of the parking garage 3, and may arrange their vehicle directly from Sixt’s rental counters. Sixt is open at this location from 06:30 to 23:30, every day of the week. Customers with a connection to the internet can hire their vehicle in advance of their flight to Zurich Airport, from Sixt’s website, at An advanced booking is often recommended, especially if a special type or size of car is required, or if additional items of equipment are needed. These may include a satellite navigation system, a baby or booster seat or ski racks.

A satellite navigation system is ideal for drivers who are not familiar with the road network surrounding Zurich. The systems hired by Sixt are of high quality, and come with many features which make driving more pleasant, and finding your destination an easier task. The GPS units may even be pre-programmed with all points of interest relating to the area, for example, hotels, restaurants, fuel stations, pharmacies, shopping centres, tourist attractions and important business locations. At Zurich Airport, Sixt offers a number of their vehicles with a satellite navigation system included in the rental. These cars are similar to the BMW 5er, with a manual or automatic transmission, the Mercedes-Benz E-Klasse or Jaguar XF, and the Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse or Audi A8. Vehicles such as these are more elegant than ordinary rented cars, and are ideal for prestigious business events. Families may be interested in the BMW 5er Touring, Audi A6 Kombi, Mercedes-Benz E-Klasse T-Modell or the Audi A6 Avant, which are all estate cars with more room for luggage, and feature a satellite navigation unit.

Vehicles from Sixt that are of a nice practical size include the VW Polo, Nissan Micra, Ford Fiesta, Fiat Punto and Opel Corsa, as well as the Smart For Two, which is a little car perfect for just two. The minimum age requirement for these vehicles is just 20, and renters must have held their drivers licenses for at least a year before the rental date. Slightly larger vehicles are similar to the Mitsubishi Lancer and Mazda 6, as well as the Opel Insignia, VW Passat and Skoda Superb, all with an age requirement of 21. Satellite navigation systems for these cars must be reserved, and are subject to availability.

Sixt, at Zurich Airport caters for customers who need a larger vehicle, with room for more passengers. The MPV vehicles available include the Opel Zafira and Grand Scenic, seating five passengers, the Renault Grand Espace and Ford S-Max seating seven people, and the Ford Transit Bus and Renault Traffic that can accommodate up to nine passengers. The MPV vehicles have good space for luggage as well.

Unique services from this rental company are the Sixt Quick-Check-In Terminals, Sixt Mobile-Check-In options and Sixt Online-Check-In, accessed by customers who have a Sixt Express Card. The Quick-Check-In terminals allow customers to bypass the rental counters and create their own rental agreement in just three easy steps, provided they have already made a reservation. The Sixt Express Card or the customer’s credit card is inserted into the terminal to access the reservation, one of three vehicles is chosen and the rental contract is printed. Now customers can simply take the vehicle keys from the safe and go to their vehicle. Ladies may also benefit from their partner’s corporate rates with the Sixt Ladies Card, and more frequent renters enjoy exclusive services with the Sixt Gold Card.

At Zurich Airport, one way hire is a popular option for a customer who will not be returning to the airport. The customers may then collect their vehicle from Sixt, at this rental location, but return the vehicle to another location, once the car hire period has expired. One way rentals may cost a bit extra if the vehicle is returned to a different city. Disabled drivers may also be able to use hand controls, which is a device used to operate the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle. Hand controls may come with a steering wheel knob, but do not usually control the blinkers, car lights or windshield wipers of the vehicle. Customers in need of hand controls should contact Sixt to ensure that this service is available, and should always make the request in advance of their arrival at the airport.

Sixt, at Zurich Airport, will be happy to assist with all further enquiries.
