    Hi, I'm collecting a freind who is joing me for a week of my travels from Geneva airport, but I'll be in France and don't want the hassle of crossing into Switzerland.

    So I've told my freind to jump in a taxi to get to an easy collection point for me in the motorhome on the French side of the border (I'll be coming from Annecy).

    My question is does anyone know of a good collection point or site that would be open that is close to Geneva airport - but in France.

    Tall order I know, but you are all a well travelled wise bunch!

    Any advice most welcome.

    Thanks

    Justin

    A taxi will be really, really expensive.

    It depends which side you are coming from, really - I lived in Geneva for a few years and personally I would simply go across the border, but it depends on if you use the autoroute or not (in a van).

    North side, I would say Champion supermarket at Ferney Voltaire - 5 minutes from the airport. South side a bit more tricky...... Hope that helps

    Taxi cost?

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    Do you have any rough idea, ball park, guesstimate as to what a taxi cost would be to the Champion supermarket ?

    Thanks

    Justin

    You can exit Geneva airport on the French side. Follow signs in arrivals for France. The exit runs parallel with the pal expo. I sometimes hire a car from the French side when I'm working over there. I stay in France also as the company is near to CERN on the French border even though I work in Swiss.
