Hello everyone...

We'll visit Switzerland Italy France and Germany on june 2017 and we'll land in Zurich airport. During in Switzerland we will travel by rail but we love to rent a car when we out from Switzerland. Our 1st plan is we'll explore Switzerland for about 8 days and end our visit in Lugano ..rent a car from there and continue our journey to Italy-France-Germany/Austria. Can we return the car instead Lugano? We'll back home from Zurich airport so we need to reach the nearest city to Zurich from the last place we visit.

Can you give us any solution?

Thank you and I appreciate for any suggestions

Hi Lilik,

Sure, you can rent a car in Lugano and drop it off at the airport of Zurich. I'd recommend to have a look at www.easycar.com/car-hire/switzerland and uncheck the box "Return car to the same location". You will see the options. In some cases the rental company charges a fee because you drop the car in a different location. The site will notify you of that.

Thank you Arno for the information, it's very helpful. In fact we still have many questions in mind and I hope you can help us.

1. During in Switzerland we love to visit Lucern, Jungfrau, Grindelwald, Brienz, Zermatt, Heidyland, St. Moritz and enjoy the scenic train as well What's your sugestion for our base town?

2. Is there any luggage storage in every rail station ? There'll be 5 of us myself, my hubby, 17 years old son, 15 years old and 12 years old daughter...so there'll be many luggages.

Looking forward for your answer

Thank you

Arno

Hi Lilik,

1. You need at least two bases to comfortably visit all those sites. For example: Interlaken as a base for Lucerne, Jungfraujoch, Grindelwald, Brienz and Zermatt. And Chur or another town in Graubünden for Heidiland and St. Moritz. One base would work if you limit yourself to day trips nearby. There is plenty to see in most regions. Be sure to check travel times before deciding. Some day trips will take pretty long.

2. There are lockers in larger train stations only. Some have a left luggage office. But I would assume you don't need lockers as you don't need much luggage on day trips. A light backpack will do.
