Renting a car at Geneva Airport - French Side

Jump to last reply

I plan a road trip through the French Alps and Burgundy. I will be flying into Geneva, renting a car from the French sector of the airport (to save money and avoid drop off fees), then returning the car in Paris. However, I would like to stay a few nights in Geneva before renting the car. Could someone please tell me whether the following plan would work:

1. Arrive from US in Geneva. Go through Swiss immigration and take train/bus to city.
2. Stay a few nights in Geneva.
3. Return to Geneva airport via bus or train from Geneva .. walk into the French section ... pick up car at French car rental desk.
4. Exit the airport via France.

I'm particularly looking for comments on Steps 3 and 4 ... am I correct in understanding that I can simply walk over to the car rental desk from the (Swiss) bus or train stop and walk over to the French side, or do I need to enter the airport via the French side somehow in order to pick up a French rental car. Please advise. Thanks!
