Handy tips for driving in Zürich

  • Motorists in Switzerland drive on the right, and give way to traffic on the right.
  • Look out for trams, as they have the right of way at all times.
  • Headed onto the motorway? Make sure your rental car has a Swiss motorway sticker attached. Your rental car should come with one, but it pays to double check.
  • The speed limit in the city is 50km/h, and 100km/h on the highways.

Jenny Everitt
The car was perfect for the weekend, but there was no counter at the airport for the Dollar car company I had rented....bit stressful. I needed to call to find out that I needed to go to the Hertz counter. Otherwise I would recommend the GoSee car rental experience.
