Parking free or cheap in Geneve
 
Hi,
I am moving to Geneve for one year. For moving my stuff, I would need to carry with me my car and I plan to keep it for 15days/ one month before bringing it back home. My apartment in Geneve is around the main station ( the tram 14 and 18 are the closest public transport lines).
During this period I won't need the car much, do you know where I could park it?
For me it would be okay also very far from the city center, if cheap or free.
I read that it is possible to park on the blue zones for 20CHF a day and in P+R parking slots for 10CHF. Do you know if in this P+R it is possible to drop the car and paying when you exit, or you have to pay in advance on a daily base?

Or, do you know places where I can abandon my car for this long period for free or cheap? (Even 45 minutes of public transport ride or in France would be okay, since I would probably use the care only during the weekends).

Thank you very much, any help would be precious!

Check this one out.. its a new parking area in Meyrin, close to 18 tram stop (Meyrin Village).

They do have monthly subscriptions.

There are free street parking spots in Carouge on Avenue de Crevin/Avenue Potter. It's a 10-minute walk from the tram stop.
We left our car once for 6 weeks and eventually got a CHF 40 ticket just because there was supposed to be some minor construction work and we were not there to see the notice and move the car around the corner - shouldn't be an issue for you if you can check on the car once a week.

Thank you very much for your helpful replies!

@topswit This could be a solution. May I ask you what is the price that I should pay? From the website they say CHF 100.- Tax exclusive but then on the request form there is written "Abonnement mensuel: CHF 100 - (prix de référence: CHF 180.-)(En cas d’assujettissement à la TVA, celle–ci sera ajoutée en sus des prix ci-dessus))" the two prices are quite different, is 180 the price with VAT? Sorry, if the question is silly.

@theUser This sounds great. How can I understand that they are free parking spots? Do they have white lines? Are there other signs that I should take into consideration?

Thanks again!

I think it is CHF 100+VAT for unreserved parking.

Nevertheless, please get in touch with them (contact no. in the link provided earlier) for more information and options.

Cheers.

Spaces in Carouge on the two streets that I mentioned are white boxes and no signs indicating max duration (while some other streets have 10-hour or 3-hour signs)
