Geneva is a wonderful destination to visit, not only due to its many beautiful landmarks but also because it is unique in that it straddles two countries. While most of it is situated in Switzerland, part of the metropolis lies within eastern France.
No matter whether you arrive in the Swiss or French side, hiring a car from Geneva Airport is a great way for you to get around.
In doing so, you'll be able to explore at a pace that suits you from the minute you pick up your car keys at the arrivals hall.
This is where Auto Europe can help. As an experienced car hire company, we are able to provide you with a wide range of quality vehicles that will enable you to travel around Switzerland in style, safety and comfort.
Geneva – a fascinating destination to explore
There are many benefits to choosing to hire a car from Geneva Airport, not least because it gives you the freedom to travel around without being bound by the constraint of public transport timetables.
Indeed, upon collecting your car at the airport you can start your holiday immediately. Should you be travelling on business, meanwhile, you will be able to head straight to your hotel or meeting instead of trying to squeeze on to a crowded train or attempting to tell a taxi driver who doesn't speak English where you need to go.
With the airport some 4.3 miles from the city centre, it shouldn't take long for you to reach your next destination, although you should remember that the speed limit in built-up areas is 31 mph, with this rising to 74 mph in non built-up areas.
You should remember that in Switzerland, motorists drive on the right-hand side of the road, while a warning triangle must be kept within easy reach at all times when you are behind the wheel.
When you arrive in Geneva you won't be short of things to see and do, many of which can be easily reached by a hire car.
Indeed, the entire old city district is part of the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites with the Museum of the International Red Cross and stunning Notre Dame church among the numerous wonderful landmarks.
Just outside of Geneva you will find a wealth of picturesque mountains and lakes – which are perfect to visit in your hire car if you fancy connecting to nature.
However, if you want to travel a bit further afield in your vehicle you will have the freedom to do so and you could choose to visit Montreux – which hosts a world-famous jazz festival each year – or Zurich, a beautiful city that is home to many picturesque churches.
Wherever you feel like going, hiring a car from Geneva Airport gives you the opportunity to explore Switzerland in fantastic detail.
