KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Sion

  • There are several advantages to booking car hire in Sion. One of the biggest advantages is the flexibility that comes with having your own mode of transport. This is particularly useful if you want to explore the surrounding areas, as public transport in the region can be limited. Having a Sion hire car means you can set your own itinerary and stop off at any points of interest along the way. If you are interested in skiing, having your own car means you can easily reach some of the best ski resorts in the region. Places like Verbier and Crans-Montana are easily accessible by car, and you can also explore smaller, lesser-known resorts in the area.
  • Sion Airport (SIR) is the main airport that serves Sion. The car hire offices here are located inside the airport terminal, so it's easy to pick up the hire car without having to leave the airport. Alternatively, Geneva Airport (GVA) has several car hire offices located in the arrivals hall of Terminal 1. There is no shuttle bus service between the airport and the car hire offices, as they are all located within walking distance of the airport terminal. Geneva Airport is approximately 130 km (81 miles) from Sion. There’s also Bern Airport (BRN), roughly 120 km (75 miles) away. There is an Avis located on the ground floor of the terminal building.
  • When using car hire in Sion, there are a few things to keep in mind. For example, be prepared to encounter slow-moving vehicles and pedestrians, especially in the city centre. Bicycles are also common in Sion, so keep an eye out for them on the roads. When it comes to driving style, the Swiss tend to be very calm and respectful drivers. They are generally patient, follow the rules of the road, and are considerate of other drivers and pedestrians. However, it's still important to watch out for jaywalkers, as there may be some who don't follow the rules.
  • Driving in Sion can be challenging at times, particularly during rush hour. Rush hour typically occurs from 07:00 to 09:00 and 16:00 to 18:00 on weekdays. During this time, you can expect traffic to be heavy on the main roads leading into and out of the city, particularly the A9. Additionally, Sion sits in a mountainous region, which means that some roads can be steep and winding, particularly in the surrounding areas that are popular for ski trips. Winters in Sion can also be quite harsh, with heavy snowfall common, which can make travelling via car hire in Sion difficult.
  • Book your car hire in Sion at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Sion are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

When we returned the car on August 1 in Lucerne we had not been told that the office would be closed. The office was on the outskirts of town and there was nowhere to park it in the very full car park We left it behind the building wth a map explains where it was and posted keys and documents in letter box. When we picked up the car hertz debited over 300swiss francs as a deposit but we have still not been reimbursed the difference between the rental and the deposit !
