So our European delivery for June went up in smoke a couple of weeks ago (cannot get out of wife's leased Cadillac early and she now has a company car). However, we are still confirmed for a June trip to Tuscany. One advantage to not doing ED is we now have greater flexibility as to where we fly into (though I am racing my bicycle in the French Alps on July 8th so we're not that flexible). I found some pretty good fares from JFK to GVA on Swiss and like the fact that we can use miles and points to either offset the fare or upgrade cabins. All this said, I need a rental car. I have the sixt app on my iPad and have been playing around with rentals. I know that there are often better deals had off-airport property and the sixt app gives me three options for Geneva: Geneva French, Geneva Swiss or Geneva city. (My wife has given me the ok to book a BMW since I can't get a new one for myself this time:thumbup:.) When I look to book in the Swiss sector, the rate is aproximately $1500:yikes: however, when I look at the French side, it is much more reasonable at $700. What gives? Does anybody have advice for me on renting a car in Switzerland? Thank you in advance.
