It was a disaster!Pros:You said it will cost 267 frank I end up paying 987 frank for different reasons. Some of it my fault but I wasn't expecting that at all and the website fee was completely misleading.Reviewed 5 Jul. 2018

Challenges when collecting the rental car.Cons:The rental company didn't accept visa debit card. The rental was actually done by hertz. And from my experience hertz is very ridge and not friendly. I who'd prefer to know these things in advance.Reviewed 5 Mar. 2017

Top tips for renting a car from Thrifty in Geneva

  • There are three Thrifty branches in Geneva: at the airport, the train station, and the city centre. One of the most popular places to get a Thrifty car hire is from Rue De Berne in the city centre, as it's conveniently located for anyone visiting the city. Whilst Geneva has a comprehensive transport network, you’ll enjoy more flexibility with a car hire as you don’t have to adhere to public transport timetables. The city centre branch also has the largest selection of vehicles to choose compared to other Geneva branches.
  • When you’re in Geneva you will find lots of places to park your Thrifty hire car. On-street parking is common, with there being white and blue zones. If you park for 90min on the white zone it’s about 2.80Fr (£2.40), whereas in the blue zone it’s free for the first 89min. You are able to pay for your parking space using the PayByPhone App or the nearby ticket machines. Make sure you follow the rules of parking otherwise you’ll get fined. In which case Thrifty would pay the fine and take the money off your credit card, along with an admin fee.
  • You must abide by the laws of the lanes when you’re driving your Thrifty car hire in Geneva. For instance, everyone needs to have a seat belt on. Kids under 12 or 150 cm in height need to be in a booster seat.

Mobile phone usage is permitted, but only on hands-free settings. If you see an emergency vehicle with its sirens or lights on, you must give them right of way.
