Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Geneva?
You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Geneva's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Geneva set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to review Sixt's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Geneva?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Geneva. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Geneva trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
