Geneva City Guide
Planes, trains, automobiles..and transfers!
Mountain Drop-offs offers VIP and private transfers to and from Geneva’s main downtown train station (Genève-Cornavin) directly to and from the main French and Swiss Alp resorts.
Alternatively, you can hop on a train to the airport station Genève-Cointrin (they run every 10-15 minutes and take just 8 minutes) and get your usual MDO shared transfer from Geneva Airport. And of course, our transfer service runs all year round.
Travelling by train to Geneva by train from London takes around 6hrs 15mins. It’s Eurostar from St Pancras, then a change at Lille on to a TGV Lyria service, which will bring you straight to the heart of Geneva city centre. When you count how long before your flight you have to be at the airport etc, for many, the train could actually be quicker than flying.
And a word of advice on driving a car in Geneva – there’s no cheap parking in Geneva City Centre and traffic jams at commuting times are legendary. Take the very efficient tram/bus/rail connections and use Mountain Drop-offs to whisk you away to the alpine ski resorts.
