Company: Hertz
Location: Sydney Airport (Off Airport Truck Rental Location)
Reserved: Economy
Status: Hertz Presidential Circle
Received: Premium Full Size (Holden SV6)

Booked off of a third party site, while I was told on the phone I would not get an upgrade. But I mentioned my status at the counter and they just gave me their best car on the lot.

Guess they don't have many automatics there.

I avoid driving in Switzerland though, unless you're staying in the city area.

When I was there this past summer, I stayed put in Davos, so I took the train. When I was there 2 years ago, I took a car. Why wouldn't you take a car?

Lol. So don't speed.

Signs are very clear all over. It's actually very easy to drive there. It helps that the GPS in the Audi had the speed limits posted.

they get you for going even 5km over. Speaking from experience. And when you get a brand new BMW 5series it's kinda hard not to speed

Got it. 5km/h is not much at all. I heard they were very strict so I made sure not to speed. I went in off season, so could be there was less police out.
