Geneva Airport is based at a major European juncture in terms of finance, business and politics; this is reflected in the transnational character of many French and Swiss cities which dwell near the border. Geneva is a popular airport for skiers due to its proximity to Portes du Soleil/Rhone Alps region.
Geneva Airport goes as far as having a ‘French Sector' where the arrivals rules differ for anyone visiting or departing to France. Rent a car at Geneva Airport and utilise its proximity to some of the best French ski and holiday resorts.
The first thing you might notice at Geneva Airport if you're travelling from, or departing to France, is the fact that there's an allocated ‘French Section' of the airport due to the amount of traffic crossing back and forth over the border.
Famous ski resort locations like Chamonix, which is 99km on the A40, are easy to reach for those hiring a car from Geneva Airport. Chamonix is a world famous resort and is of course home to Aiguille de Midi Cable Cars for those with a head for heights. The views of Mont Blanc are incredible, just as in the Le Brevent Cable Cars.
Geneva Airport is popular with tourists travelling to the Rhone-Alps region of France and also the ski resorts on the French side of the border. Annecy is a French tourist resort in the Rhone Alps region which should be far more renowned; the central architecture of Palais de l'Ile is idyllic. The Lac Annecy is the centrepiece of the town and the forestry and mountains here are truly spectacular – if you rent a car at Geneva Airport, check out the sublime Gorges du Fier. From Geneva, Annecy is just a 44km on the A41.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
