Zurich Car Rental

Having access to a Zurich car rental makes exploring the city and surrounding region enjoyable. At SIXT you can choose from a large and diverse fleet that has vehicles for every type of traveler and budget. Pick up your rental car from one of our convenient locations downtown or at Zurich Airport.

I am happy getting an Audi Q5 instead of a Mercedes Benz GLC. It has excellent navigation system.

A huge expense was added to my rental due to the insurance which I was pressured to take. CHF63 per day added for insurance

Rented a 9-passenger van at the Zurich Airport and it could not have been easier. The van was immaculate and my pre-ordered child seats were waiting for me upon arrival. Great service from a professional and friendly staff. Keep up the great work!
