Innsbruck Airport Car Hire
Innsbruck Airport which is also known as Kranebitten Airport is the Tyrol's largest international airport, situated in western Austria. It is less than 3 miles from Innsbruck City Centre, and during Winter is extremely popular as a destination for the millions of skiers heading to the Austrian Alps and the Italian Dolomites, which are a couple of hours drive to the south.
Year round though Innsbruck is important as it is the commercial centre of Western Austria, as well as seeing many holidaymakers heading for the lakes and mountains in the region.

Innsbruck Airport Top Tips
Innsbruck Airport is compact and reasonably small - if you have any thoughts that you may be delayed (perhaps due to poor weather conditions) take reading material and things to keep you occupied - shopping at the airport is limited.
If heading into Switzerland from Austria you will need a vignette if you are planning to use the motorway. They cost CHF40 and last for 14 months from 1 December until 31 January. You can buy them online (Swiss Railways, although often you find that a previous hirer has left one on the car already so we would wait and buy one from a Motorway Service Station on the border if it's required. Some people look to buy one on an auction site, but be aware that if the sticker has already been used on another vehicle (and you will never know if that is the case or not until you get stopped) you face a CHF500 fine.
