Changing rentals cars at Geneva to avoid cross border drop off fees

Jump to last reply

Following a family holiday in Provence ( where he will have a French rental car) my son will be driving from Avignon and his itinerary takes him through Switzerland and on to Munich where he will catch his homeward flight.
The fees for dropping the car off in Germany are very high and we have heard that it is possible to drop off the French rental car in the French sector of Geneva airport, take a short walk through to the Swiss sector, and then pick up another rental car to continue the journey. Can anyone confirm that this is practical?

Clearly, this doesn't fully solve the problem as the Swiss car would still incur fees if dropped off in Germany. Is anyone aware of locations on/near the Swiss-German border where a similar swap could be done?

Alternatively he could take a train from within Switzerland to cover the last leg of the journey but the Geneva idea is what interests us the most so we would appreciate any comment.
