Car hire Geneva airport on the Swiss side
Car hire at Geneva airport on the Swiss side has become complicated. Geneva airport is a popular destination for people coming to the French Alps on skiing, mountain biking, road cycling or hiking holidays.
If you are planning to hire a car from Geneva airport on the Swiss side be aware that an EU law was passed on the 1st of May 2016. It is no longer legal for an EU citizen to drive non EU hire cars in EU countries.
As Switzerland is not in the EU Swiss registered hire cars can not be driven across the border to France.
This caused chaos across the car hire industry. Many companies were forced to get in French registered cars or simply tell customers they could not take the car outside of Switzerland. Not great if you planned your holiday in the French Alps.
