Too late to book with points for Zurich in September?

Never tried reserving a car in Switzerland (Zurich) before, but trying to use my points for a week's rental in early September and finding "no rewards currently available for your date and location" for any dates around that time. Are there any tricks that might help here or is this just what you can expect for trying to book a car for dates only a couple months away during a still busy tourist season? Thanks for any help/advice/chastisement...etc.

Doesn't look like you can use points to book in Switzerland. It's not on the drop-down list of countries on the Hertz reward redemption page, at least. I'd call them and ask.

Ah, that explains it. I was reading the fine print elsewhere and I saw that Switzerland was specifically mentioned as a rewards country, but I just noticed it only participates in the earning part..."Rentals in Switzerland will earn points, but members can’t redeem a reward there."
Guess that pretty much answers my question.
Thanks for the heads up!

Go to Geneva or Basel (French side) and use your points there as an alternative?
