Travelling by car to Geneva is an inescapable point of the travel programme. You will see the most interesting places and will feel the rhythm of the city. Rent a car and go! Only with a car you will see Geneva the way it is open to locals and you will become a part of it without any restrictions. You may take long stops in places you like, or pass by those ones that are uninteresting to you, even if thousands of tour guides think otherwise. It is exclusively your trip; make it unforgettable.
A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.
In addition, the price depends on the point where you are planning to pick up the car. Pay attention to this to make the trip more advantageous.
Do not waste your time searching for a rental point of your operator, where you may pick up or hand over the car; we took care of you and plotted them on the special map.
If you are a driver aged 25 to 65, consider yourself lucky. As a rule, it is this renter's age that establishes the strongest trust at a provider's office and is will result in your being charged at basic rates. Drivers under 25 and over 65 are often forced to pay an extra charge, whether there is an increasing factor and to what extent, you may find out on our website in the Age Restrictions section.
Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:
Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in Geneva. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.
To ensure your rental is the most comfortable, we always recommend a full insurance policy. You may do this either on our website or directly at the rental company office.
Each car has its own set of features, which are indicated in the insurance document. Be careful when taking it and read through the Insurance Cover section to insure yourself against further surprises. Example:
|Car rental company||Car class||Apx. Deposit amount|
|Mini / Economy||200-400 £|
|Compact / Standard||400-800 £|
|Fullsize / Premium||700+ £|
