  1. Freedom of Exploration: With a car, you can easily explore the countryside of the eastern part of Switzerland, particularly the Appenzell region, known for its rolling hills and traditional Swiss culture.
  2. Convenience: While the Swiss public transport system is reliable and punctual, having a car gives you the flexibility to travel without timetables, ideal for spontaneous detours and stops.
  3. Scenic Drives: The surrounding areas of St. Gallen offer stunning scenic drives, especially towards Lake Constance or the Alpine regions.
  4. Cost-Efficient for Groups: If you're traveling with family or friends, hiring a car can be more economical than multiple public transport tickets for longer distances.

Nearest Airport to St. Gallen: St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport is the closest, but it's smaller and has limited connections. Zurich Airport, being a major international hub, might be more convenient for many travelers.

Tolls: Switzerland has a motorway vignette system. For using motorways, you need a vignette sticker placed on your car. It's usually valid for a calendar year. Rental cars should come with this already, but double-check when collecting your vehicle.

Recommended Car Type: A standard or compact car is suitable for St. Gallen and its surroundings. If you plan to head into mountainous areas, especially in winter, consider an all-wheel drive and ensure it's equipped with the necessary winter gear.

Given St. Gallen's rich history and its proximity to various attractions in eastern Switzerland, hiring a car can genuinely enhance your visit, allowing you to witness the beauty and culture of the region at your own pace.  Booking your car rental early not only guarantees availability but also allows you to secure the best rates and choice of vehicles.
