How to airport transfer?

Living in Neuchâtel, the closes airport is Geneva. The CFF however cant get me to the airport for any flights leaving prior to 7:30 AM and can't get me back for any returning flights landing after 9:30 PM. Taxi's cost about 350-400 CHF one way.

At GVA there are plenty of flights leaving prior to 7:30 AM and plenty of flights landing after 9:30 PM. Is there any alternative cost effective way to get to/from GVA outside the CFF timetable?

Re: How to airport transfer?

A friend of mine drives to Yverdon and gets the train from there when she has an early departure or late arrival in Geneva. There is a much later train back than there is to Neuchâtel, although it involves changing in Lausanne and stops absolutely everywhere.

Only works if you have a car of course.

One-way car rental? or stay over the night before at an affordable and conveniently located hotel?

Re: How to airport transfer?

Thanks for the suggestions, though I was hoping there would be some kind of airport transfer service (like an airport bus for example). Staying at a hotel or taking a rental car is of course a solution, but defies the point to do it all straight from home. The YlB option is one I'll definitely look into. Other then that, are there any airport transfer services that you know of?

A previous thread covered the same subject with a different airport.
