Most holidays to Geneva are about lazy days walking the waterfront, delicious drinks and meals in the Old Town and enjoying the cosmopolitan, international vibes. Geneva is frequently mistaken for Switzerland's capital, and a visit will make clear why this falsehood is so easy to believe.
Hiring a car in Geneva
If you get hold of cheap Geneva car hire remember that the picturesque Old Town is a traffic free environment, so if your hotel in Geneva is located here you'll need to think where you will park. It's a good idea to get your hire car from Geneva Airport as this will save on the hassle of arranging separate transfers. On-street parking can be a touch on the expensive side so check with your accommodation about spaces before you book your car hire in Geneva.
Places to visit in Geneva
With car hire from Geneva Airport why not visit the CERN research facility and get close to the amazing experiments they undertake there. Be sure to venture out of the Old Town area and visit the lively Carouge with its clubs, bars and restaurants thrive. The Jet d'Eau can't be missed and the United Nations building is also a must-see Geneva attraction. There are plenty of expositions and trade fairs throughout the year but to liven up your 2014 Geneva holiday why not take in the Bol d'Or boat race or the Geneva Festival from late July to early August. You'll need to book in advance to get a good deal though!
Outside of Geneva, many hire a car at the airport to go to the many ski resorts in the area. If you are heading into the mountains then do make sure you have the right snow chains with you. You won't be able to go high up into resort without them.
