Car Hire/Zurich

We are travelling to Zurich next April and we need to rent a car to travel to Ticino and back. Is it cheaper to make a booking through the Internet or upon arrival?? Please help Thanks

We rented a car from Avis and returned it at the airport in Zurich. It was a painless rental as those things go. How to find the best deal? I had searched Internet, called the big boys, compared rates, but my travel agent was able to top anything I could find on my own. I find that she consistently gets me a better rate than I can get by trying to use Hertz, Avis, or National even with AAA discounts, etc. Sometimes, I can do better, but I would say her success rate is at least 55%. So I use my own devices and her prices as well, then make a decision when I have 3 or 4 rates to compare.
By the way, I have not found that cheapest up front is always cheapest at the end in terms of frustration, bother, and aggravation.

Sorry, I'm not sure if it's cheaper to make a booking via Internet, but I just wanted to recommand you to take the train which run every hour between Zurich and Ticino (Bellinzona/Lugano/Locarno). It's much easier, very comfortable and it's a great ride via the famous Gotthard line. Timetable and informations:
