Exploring Geneva by hire car
Geneva is Switzerland’s second biggest city and a popular gateway to the Alps. Lying over the waters of Lake Geneva from France, Geneva is part of Romandie, the French-speaking region of Switzerland.
Exploring the region of Geneva in a rental car is an opportunity to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the foothills of the Alps, one of the most popular tourist regions in the whole of Europe. Geneva is only 40km from Annecy, a further 40km from Aix-Les-Bains and Chamberry, beyond which lies the Parc Naturel régional de Chartreuse and Grenoble. Geneva itself is beautifully positioned at the end of Lake Geneva next to the Parc naturel régional du Haut-Jura.
Remember that to drive on motorways in Switzerland you will need to purchase a compulsory motorway tax sticker (aka Vignette) for a single annual 40CHF fee. This will be useful if you wish to cross the customs to France at Bardonnex - Saint-Julien as you will need to use the motorway to come through the customs office.
