Car rental location Flughafen St.Gallen-Altenrhein

Location information for Flughafen St.Gallen-Altenrhein

Altenrhein Airport is located on the shores of Lake Constance, Switzerland, and serves the nearby city of St Gallen, 16 miles away. Regular flights arrive here from Vienna, courtesy of Tyrolean Airways and People's Viennaline. The airport is well-connected by the A1 motorway, meaning that many travellers arrange car hire in Altenrhein Airport well before departure.

Airport Facilities

Aircraft have been using Altenrhein Airport since 1927, but it wasn't until the 1980s that modern infrastructure such as x-ray machines and metal detectors were eventually installed. Later additions, such as a business lounge with wireless internet access, car rental in Altenrhein Airport and expanded parking facilities, have brought the facility into the 21st century.

Car Hire Altenrhein Airport

There is virtually no traffic in the centre of St Gallen, as most residents and visitors get around the old city on foot. As such, it is a good idea to compare car hire in order to enjoy the best that the Lake Constance region has to offer. Those who do drive into the centre of St Gallen can park underground at the Migros shopping centre.

Things To See and Do

Situated around three miles west of the Airport, Rorschach is one of the prettiest destinations on the shores of Lake Constance. Here, guests can soak up the atmosphere on the promenade or go for a bike ride on the dedicated cycle path. Appenzell makes for an interesting daytrip too, thanks to its stunning mountain scenery and pleasant hiking trails. The town is 16 miles south of St Gallen.

Best Time to Visit

St Gallen is a fairly wet city, so it is difficult to avoid rain or snow at any time of the year. Even the driest month, February, has 10 days of rain. Temperatures are quite pleasant from June to August, with average highs of 18 to 21ºC. Summer is also the time to enjoy St Gallen's outdoor concerts and events, such as the St Gallen Open Air Festival, in July.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
