Traffic is dense near Geneva so we recommend public transport wherever possible, but if you don’t have the choice:
- Avoid rush hour: from 6:30am to 9am and 4pm to 7pm.
- Leave early to make sure you arrive on time.
In the mountains
In winter, even if the road is clear, make sure you drive carefully and stay alert.
New regulations: from 1 November 2021, any vehicle using the mountain roads in 48 departments of France must be equipped with either snow tyres, winter tyres or snow chains, throughout the winter season.
