Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Geneva?

if you are planning on using car hires in Geneva, then you will need to be at least 20 years old with at least one year of driving experience to use Geneva car hires. Normally, if you are younger than 25 years old, Geneva car hire companies will apply a surcharge to your deal to cover additional insurance costs. You will be asked to provide a passport when getting your car hire in Geneva to prove your identity, and while most companies require you to pay the deposit with a credit card, there are some that will accept debit cards. The International Driving Licence is not required to hire a car in Geneva, Switzerland, but we advise you to get it just in case, particularly if your licence is in a non-Roman alphabet language.

All passengers travelling in car hires in Geneva are required to wear their seatbelts, and hands-free devices are allowed but they are not recommended.

Snow tyres are recommended if you plan on exploring the nearby mountains in winter.
