Cheap Flights to Geneva

Geneva overview

When is the best time to book a flight to Geneva?

Peak season:

The warmest time of the year is July and August, although it’s also when there are big crowds of tourists. You’ll find it almost impossible to find cheap flights to Geneva during the summer, especially if there is a festival or event on such as the Swiss National day at the beginning of August. The city hosts several events and music festivals over the summer so you’ll need to book your flights to Geneva a few months in advance to make a saving on your flight tickets. Early spring is a good time of year to visit as the crowds are smaller and the weather is still reasonable. You’ll also have a much better chance of finding cheap flights to Geneva around spring and late autumn. December can be very busy with Christmas and New Year holidays so if you want a Christmas getaway make sure to secure your flight tickets early.

Off Season:

October to November and April to May are generally when you’ll find the cheapest flights to Geneva but you’ll still need to book in advance. The downside is that some hotels are not open so it might be a good idea to make sure you can secure the kind of accommodation you would like before you book your flights to Geneva.

When is the best time to book a flight to Geneva?

Geneva is a good place to visit all throughout the year but if you are wanting a warm holiday then secure your flights to Geneva for between June and August. Secure your flight tickets as early in the year as you can as cheap flights to Geneva are difficult to find, especially during the peak season. If you opt for a quieter holiday with less events and tourists then any time outside of June to August will be pleasant. Again you’ll need to secure your flight tickets in advance as even in the off season it can be hard to find the cheapest flights to Geneva. When you are booking your flights to Geneva try to secure seats on the left side of the plane for a chance of spectacular views before you land.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

The airport is only 4km away from the city making transport there extremely easy. You can opt for a train which takes approximately 6 minutes to finish the journey from the airport. You can get to the airport railway station directly from the arrivals Terminal and is a great choice. Another option is to get a bus. They run regularly too and you can find full information about which bus will better suit you from the information kiosk in the airport itself. Failing those two options, you can get a taxi however due to the ease of travel with the train this isn’t really necessary, especially considering a taxi will cost a lot more money.
