Geneva Airport car hire is mainly delivered from the Swiss side of the airport - which has the advantage of fast access to the motorway - in turn giving access to Geneva city centre, Lake Geneva and both the French and Swiss Alps. Although cheaper car hire is normally available from car hire companies on the French side of Geneva airport, cars from the Swiss side have the added convenience of a vignette (allowing access to Swiss motorways) and over the winter are winterised - which means winter tyres between November and April and normally a set of snow chains (check this as you book your car rental company as some companies package the cost of these in whilst others charge extra). This article concentrates on car hires from the Swiss sector of Geneva - to access information on the French side visit our French sector pages.
