Chur Car Rental
Switzerland’s oldest city draws tourists with its beautiful mountain setting, winding alleys and historic buildings. The restaurants, museums, bars and boutiques in the Old Town contribute to the Mediterranean-style atmosphere. Those who rent a car in Chur can not only discover the attractions of the pretty town of Chur but also the pleasant resorts of nearby Brambruesch.
Car Hire in Chur:
In Switzerland, cars drive on the right hand side of the road. If you are not used to driving on this side of the road, it is worth taking your car for a practice drive around the car park of your rental car provider. You should also be familiar with the internal layout of the car. Remember, the steering wheel will be on the left hand side and the brakes and gearstick will be on the right.
As soon as you arrive at your pick-up location in Chur, you should ensure that you have all necessary documentation ready to present to the agent at the desk. Important items include your booking confirmation voucher, your credit card, your driver’s licence and any other forms of identification requested by your car rental provider at the time of booking.
