Car hire in Geneva
Le Refuge strongly urges guests to hire a car at Geneva airport
for the duration of their holiday (except those driving from the
UK). It is a relatively cheap option and easy to organize from the
UK. All of the principal car hire firms are represented at Geneva
Airport and accept bookings made outside the country (including
Europcar, Avis, Easycar,
Hertz, etc). It is also advisable and more convenient
to organize your car hire pick-up on the Swiss side rather than
the French side.
Please contact us for advice on car hire if necessary.
