Important information about Geneva car hire

Can I drive to France with a rental car from Geneva?

If you are taking out car hire in Geneva and are hoping to be able to cross the border into countries like France, find out what's involved in crossing the border with your Geneva car hire. There is free travel between France and Switzerland, but it's better to confirm with your rental agency to avoid insurance complications. The majority of rental agencies won't charge for travel from Geneva to France. However, you're likely to incur additional insurance costs and will need to pay a cross-border fee for taking the rental vehicle from one country to another. If you plan on driving in France, their motorways are toll roads, and you'll have to pay with cash or credit card, but it's handy to keep cash on you. To avoid hefty border fees in Italy, consider dropping your car off and getting a new rental in the new country.

Can you hire a car in Geneva without a credit card?

If you're looking for car hire in Geneva but only have a debit card, you can find out about cheap car rentals in Geneva without a credit card here. Although most car rental companies require a credit card for rental, you can search for companies that'll allow the use of a debit card. Europcar is one of the European car rental agencies that accept debit cards at several locations. Please note that you won't be able to rent a vehicle with cash and will need either a credit card or debit card. To reserve the rental and pay a deposit for it, the rental company will put a "hold charge" on a card to serve as the deposit. This amount will only be billed if there is damage to the car or a loss that the insurance doesn't cover. Please note that the owner of the credit card must be present when booking. Rental car companies cannot hire a car out without the person being there.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Geneva?

Traffic rules in Switzerland are strongly enforced, and traffic fines are often heavy, so getting to know some of the rules will help. Firstly, keep to the right-hand side of the road and the right-hand lane. If you're used to driving on the opposite side, we suggest spending some time familiarising yourself with the car controls while at the rental company's premises. In Switzerland, your headlights must be switched on at all times while driving. To drive on the motorways, you will be required to have a motorway vignette, which should be in your rental agreement in Geneva. When driving in built-up areas, you'll need to stick to a speed limit of 50 km/h, 80 km/h outside built-up areas and 120 km/h on motorways. If you're hoping to drive in the mountains, please be aware that this requires drivers to have special skills.

What documents does an international traveller need to hire a car in Geneva?

If you're travelling into the country as a non-EU citizen or someone from an Arabic, Chinese, or Russian country, you will need to have your home driving licence and an international driving licence for your car hire in Geneva. Please note you must also be at least 18 and have held your licence for a year or more. Please also keep your confirmation details handy to give to your rental company if required. You will also need to produce a valid passport and, in some cases, be asked to produce a travel itinerary. To pay for the rental, you'll need a credit card with the driver's name.
