Geneva Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Pick up your rental car at Geneva Airport! Then drive into the city center to Geneva’s most famous landmark, the spectacular Jet d’Eau fountain. Park your rental outside Vieille Ville and stroll through the city’s old town, or check out the historic Italian neighborhood of Carouge.

If you feel like spending the day outside the city, there are many scenic routes along the coast of Lake Geneva to choose from. You can drive to the starting point of one of the lakeside hiking trails or, if it’s winter, ski or snowboard in the nearby Jura Mountains or Alps.

Geneva is amazing, but the whole region has plenty to offer, especially when you get a longer term car rental. Why not travel even higher up into the Alps, explore other regions of Switzerland, or cross the border to nearby France? You can even pick up your rental car at Geneva Airport and drop it off in a different city like Zurich or Bern. Start planning your Swiss adventure today!

Geneva Airport is also known as Cointrin Airport and Genève Aéroport.
