Location information for Geneva

Geneva is not only the second-largest metropolis in Switzerland, but also one of the most significant cities in the world. Geneva is where many international non-profit organizations are located, including the International Red Cross and branches of the United Nations. The city and its metropolitan area are smothered in magnificent tourist sites that are best seen with a car hire in Geneva.



Geneva's international airport is located just outside the city along the border of Switzerland and France. Exploring the inner city is possible by bicycle, on foot or by public bus. However, when it comes to the beautiful countryside visitors should opt for car rental in Geneva for its convenience and affordability.

Car Hire Geneva

Tourists will feel more at home if they travel via private transportation. Although Geneva's public transportation facilities are convenient within the city, tourists should use a car to reach the spectacular landmarks around Lake Geneva and within the Swiss-French Alps. Compare car hire through the various suppliers found online here, including AutoEurope, Budget and Sixt.


Driving in Geneva is not necessary, as public transportation in Geneva is reliable and cheap. Nevertheless, discovering the natural beauty around Lake Geneva and the region's stunning mountainous landscape is efficiently done by private vehicle. Roads in the highland areas can be treacherous at some corners, and the winter brings heavy snowfall.

Things To See and Do

Just to the southeast of Geneva is the French resort of Chamonix. It is one of the world's most adored ski resorts, and rests at the base of Mont Blanc. The shores of Lake Geneva are home to a plethora of towns and sites, including Lausanne, Evian and Montreux. The annual Jazz Festival held in Montreux is certainly worth experiencing.

Best Time To Visit

Ski enthusiasts should head to Geneva in the months of January and February, when the snow is falling and temperatures are below 0°C much of the time. Visitors wanting to explore the lake will enjoy Geneva in the high-season between June and August. To see the city without the crowds, September and April are ideal months.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
