Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Geneva car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Geneva.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Geneva car rental.

Compacts, coupes, and sedans are certainly the best hire options for potential drivers in Geneva. The city has many streets and lanes that predate the automobile and, as a result, are simply ill-suited for their use. This isn’t too big of a problem for smaller vehicles, but with a larger car or SUV, these roads can become a hassle to maneuver through. Parking in the older parts of the city can especially be a problem for larger cars.
Switzerland has four broad categories for delineating speed limits throughout the country: in-city, out-of-city, expressways, and motorways. For in-city traffic, the speed limit is 50 km/h (31 mph), while out-of-city traffic is 80 km/h (50 mph). On expressways the standard speed limit is 100 km/h (62 mph) and on motorways it is 120 km/h (75 mph).

Streetside parking is widely available but is broken into four colored zones: white, blue, yellow, and red. Each zone has a separate set of parking limitations and fees, which will be listed on nearby signage and require the purchase of parking decals (found at petrol stations, police stations, and tourism offices).
