Geneva is Switzerland's second most-populated city, which not only has a long history of watchmaking including well-known names such as Chopard and Rolex, but remains an important business centre to this day thanks to the many companies whose European headquarters are based in the city.
Geneva hosts its own motor show in March which is one of the most significant international auto shows. In the summer its most important event is the Fãtes de Genève which has a spectacular firework display over Lake Geneva. Car hire in Geneva provides you with the freedom to explore as much of the area as you choose at your own leisure.
Rent a car in Geneva and there are more than 80 buildings of significant historical interest for you to appreciate - not to mention the stunning views of Lake Geneva and the Alps.
We also recommend that you make a trip to the nearby International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum. It houses a range of permanent and temporary exhibitions which tell the history of humanitarian action. Visitors have the chance to discover and reflect on three different areas within the museum which explore important matters including defending dignity in the human race, rebuilding links within families and how best we can deduce natural risks. This museum is definitely worth a visit to take a look behind this world-famous organization.

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.
