The French side, near Ferney-Voltaire, is generally cheaper by comparison. However, the Swiss side offers several additional benefits.

During the winter season cars on the Swiss side are equipped with the mandatory snow tyres and chains, included in the cost of your car hire in Geneva. Perfect if you are travelling to any ski resorts in the Alps.
Returning your car to Geneva Airport French side can also be confusing, as all the signposted roads direct you to the ‘main’ entrance in Switzerland.
