On the border between France and Switzerland, it is not difficult to take a day trip into one or the other, no matter your original destination.

The airport is split into two sections, the Swiss side, where the majority of the flights come in, and the French side, which is located over the border in France.

With a car rental from Budget, your holiday can embrace more than one country and more than one culture.

CERN, the science centre famous for its Large Hadron Collider, a device used to smash the smallest particles of matter together to get a glimpse at what makes up the universe, circles beneath the massive Alpine mountains, travelling through both France and Switzerland.

A fascinating tour of the public buildings is offered by CERN, with explanations of the work they are taking on.

Car hire cheap from Budget allows visitors to witness this marvel of modern technology and engineering.

Chamonix, the ski town made famous by the 1924 Winter Olympics, the first of their kind, is less than an hour's drive from Geneva.

Today, it stands as a world famous ski resort and has slopes accessible any time of the year and, in the shadow of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe, there are always snowy slopes.

Rent a car and take a trip through the mountains to this winter wonderland.


Geneva lies on the border between France and Switzerland, nestled between the Alpine hills and on the edge of the glistening waters of Lac Leman.

While the city itself has an enormous variety of things to do, from visiting the UN European Headquarters to shopping for traditional Swiss cuckoo clocks, the splendour of the surrounding towns and country should not be missed.

Take hold of the wheel of your hire car and set your sights on Lausanne or Montreux, or bring your passport and take a trip into France or Italy for the day. After Geneva, Lausanne is the largest city on the shores of Lac Leman.

A must for any sporting enthusiasts, the city has been home to the International Olympic Committee since 1914. Visit the Olympic museum for a fascinating look into the history of the Games. History buffs can get their fill here too, as Lausanne is still very much a medieval-styled city, with narrow streets and a multitude of cafes and boutiques to lend to the atmosphere.

At the heart of the city is a cathedral, thought of by most as Switzerland's finest example of early Gothic-style architecture. With a cheap car rental from Budget, experience this and more.

Montreux will be forever immortalised as the home of the Montreux Jazz Festival, with such famous names as B.B. King, Ray Charles, Ringo Starr and Chuck Berry performing in years gone by.

Originally held in the Montreux casino, this tradition was altered when the casino burnt down during Frank Zappa's performance, as told in the Deep Purple song "Smoke on the Water". Today, it is held in various locations throughout the town.

This festival takes place in June/July and is well worth stopping at for the atmosphere and the variety of bands. At all times of the year, however, Montreux is a beautiful place to visit.

During the summer months, the lakeside promenade is filled with tropical plants that infuse the air with delicious scents and colors, against the backdrop of the length of Lac Leman stretching out in the distance. Paddle steamers travelling the lake stop off at Montreux.

A car rental cheap from Budget allows visitors to the country to take a drive up the lake and experience this fantastic city for themselves.
