About Car Hire at Geneva International Airport

Geneva International Airport lies 4 km northwest of Geneva city centre and is easily accessible from both Switzerland and France. The car hire desks are located in the arrivals hall, just before the exit. Remember that Geneva airport has two main exits - one on the French side and one on the Swiss side - so make sure you go to the appropriate side for your booking. Refer to your Nova Car Hire reservation document for details of the opening hours, collection, and drop-off details for your car hire provider. A member of staff at the car rental desk will direct you to your vehicle.

Note: When returning your rental car to the French side of Geneva Airport, remember that the correct motorway exit is the one marked “Ferney.” Follow signs to Ferney and ignore the signs for the airport, otherwise you will end up in the Swiss sector.
