Renting a car at Geneva airport to explore Annecy

Jump to last reply

All good information is welcome, but I would appreciate hearing from anyone with fairly recent experience.

I am considering renting a car at Geneva airport and using it for two weeks to explore the Annecy area of France. Other than driving to-and-from GVA to get to Annecy, I have no plans to drive in Switzerland.

I have a few questions concerning the rental process. I'm going to start with this question first.

When I was in my 20's, I owned a sports car with manual transmission and drove it for several years. I haven't driven a manual car in over 20 years. I'm confident I could quickly get the hang of it, but I'm wondering what's new about manual cars today in Europe, and how easy/difficult are they to figure out with no instruction from a rental facility?

Thank you.
