Book your parking with Parking Cointrin

Réservez votre stationnement avec Parking Cointrin

Geneva is Switzerland’s second-largest city, well known for its international role. Cointrin is the area where the airport is physically located.. Although part of the commune of Meyrin, the airport is generally associated with Geneva due to its immediate proximity. “Cointrin” is essentially a term used to designate the specific location of the airport.

Reserving a parking space may seem complex, but our article aims to simplify the task by explaining all the options available to you.

Compare parking offers at Cointrin

They’re actually simpler than they appear. You only have to ask yourself two questions:

  1. Determine the duration of your parking. In fact, the solutions offered will be different if you need to park for a short term or for  long-term.
  2. Determine your budget. It may be a good idea to refer you to private parking lots rather than to the official Geneva airport parking lots.

Official parking lots at Geneva-Cointrin airport

Official parking lots offer a wide range of services, which is both an advantage and a disadvantage: choosing the right parking lot from among all those available requires careful comparison.

The drop-off point

Kiss & Fly is :

  • free of charge.
  • accessible at any time.
  • designed to drop off passengers with their luggage.

However, your driver is not not authorized to parkeven for a few minutes, or even to pick up pick up passengers. Parking P2 is indicated for this purpose.

P2 short-term parking

Be careful about the definition of short-term: less than 24 hours, ideally no more than one hour. You can park for more than an hour, but this will cost you significantly more. Furthermore, after 24 hours, airport staff reserve the right to impound the vehicle. In terms of rates, the first five minutes are free, 5 to 30 minutes cost CHF 3, and an hour costs CHF 5.

Long-term parking lots P1, P20, P26 and P51

Three of them are accessible from Switzerland, while the P20 is reserved for the French sector and is aimed at travelers from the Ain region. Those coming from Haute-Savoie have full access to the parking lots in the Swiss sector.

  • Parking lot P1 offers the most direct access to terminals and is therefore one of the most expensive, along with the P20. It can be booked online.
  • Parking P20 has the same rates as P1, but cannot be booked online.
  • Parking lot P26 is further away and therefore less expensive. These prices are the same as for the P51.
  • P51 parking lot is located 500m from the airport terminals, so it’s the closest. The major drawback is thatno shuttle included for travelers who park their own vehicles in this parking lot. As a result, travellers have to cover the distance on foot, even with bulky luggage.

As you can see, the range of parking lots at the airport is very diverse, especially when it comes to long-term parking. It can be hard to find your way around, and we’ve identified 3 major drawbacks:

  • Online booking is not available for all parking lots. What’s more, even when it is, only some of the places are bookable.
  • Long-term parking rates are high.

No shuttle service available for P51the cheapest but most remote parking lot. Only travelers who have rented a car can take a shuttle.
