?'s re rental car from Geneva Airport to Annecy - French side? Needed?

Jump to last reply

Tentative plans have us flying into Geneva, picking up a rental and heading to Annecy. Several months ago I ran across an article about there being different "sides" to the airport and how difficult it was for the writer to get to Annecy depending on the "side" the car rental is on. Unfortunately I can't find that article now. Can someone explain the different "sides"? How difficult is it to get to Annecy? If there's a French side and I'm returning in France will that help with the one way drop off fee?

We plan on a day trip to Chamonix and visiting the Gorges du Fier - both, I believe, can be done by public transport but I'm inclined to believe it would be simpler with a car. Is this accurate?

I wanted to pick up the rental in Geneva to get an automatic but we will definitely be returning the car in France - if a car isn't necessary in Annecy should I reconsider and pick up the rental in Annecy (would be a manual) before heading to the Dordogne?

Thank you in advance for any help/information you can provide.
