/ Geneva car hire
Can anyone recommend a car hire company near Geneva Airport? Looking for something with Winter tyres and chains and not too much expense.
I always use europcar, but book via auto-europe.co.uk & get the car from the swiss side of the airport
If you rent on the French side, note that many of the French cars do not come with snow tyres or chains -- and almost none have a "vignette" for legal driving on the Switz motorways.
I've also heard that the Switz police are getting more frequent at enforcing against the obvious way to sneak onto the Switz motorway by way of St-Julien-en-Genevois.
Getting from the French Alps to GVA airport without using the motorway at all is somewhat tricky. I have a special track for that route stored in my GPS, but even with that aid it can feel exciting trying to get through it in the dark (? in the rain ?) to catch an early-morning flight.
