“Excellent service and easy to make a change to the size of car when more family decided to come with us! The member of staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. I have used Carrentals for many years now and never had a problem. The vehicle excess insurance works well as I destroyed a tyre when forced up the curb and I was fully re-imbursed.”

Geneva Airport (Switserland) Guide

Car Hire

Geneva Airport, formerly called Cointrin Airport, is the second-busiest airport in Switzerland. Located less than three miles from the city centre of Geneva and nestled right on the French-Swiss border, the airport can be easily accessed from the French side as well. It is currently a hub for easyJet, Darwin Airlines and Swiss International Air Lines. The airport offers excellent public transportation options, from trains, buses and trams to taxis. Car hire options are available on both the Swiss and French sides of the airport.

Who to Book With
Because of the airport’s unique location, travellers can hire cars on both the Swiss and French sides of the airport. On the Swiss side, visitors can choose from leading car hire companies, such as Advantage Rent A Car, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, National and Sixt. On the French side, visitors can choose from Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, National and Sixt.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- Valid driver’s licence (both parts for UK drivers while non-EU licence holders will need an International Driver’s Licence)
- Reservation confirmation
- Credit card with which the booking was made
- Passport (the name must match the name of the driver)

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
Speed limits are strictly enforced by the Swiss police using radar so visitors should make sure to follow speed limit signs. Swiss motorways are toll roads and all vehicles using these roads must have a vignette displayed on the windscreen (car hire companies usually provide vignettes). Seatbelts must be used, both in the front and rear. Children under the age of seven must use a child seat. Vehicles must have reflective vests and a warning triangle. Drivers should be aware that petrol stations in the cities and town may close on weekends, with 24-hour petrol stations primarily located on the motorways. During the winter months, cars must have snow chains.
