A boat, motored or otherwise, doesn't help me here... it's a car I need!

Re: Transport to Train Station Early in the Morning

I know someone who can collect you at your home address and take you directly to Geneva airport. This person does special prices when called privately on her cell phone. Please send me a private message if you are interested, and I can put you in contact with details/phone number, etc.

Re: Transport to Train Station Early in the Morning

If you don't want to overnight in Geneva, I'd suggest renting a car in Lausanne from one of the majors (or minors if they serve GVA as well) then dropping it off at the airport. I know Hertz do not charge a fee if dropped off elsewhere in Switzerland, but book at the local office and not via the website.

What drives guys drives women too. Or so does the research say about our innate talent to objectify.

Just the anatomy terms are different. Timing, too.

But we need help the OP with her timing.. I'd take the last bus/subway to the Lausanne gare and spend the few hours reading in a bar at the airport. Have done that before, layovers can be fun.

Depending on your budget and pain tolerance, how about going to the airport the night before and camping out in the airport?

Done that a couple of times when I was a student.
Don't do this. These days the airport is cleared after the last flight. Doors don't open until an hour or two before the first flight. GVA is not a 24hr airport.

I think you'll find Geneva airport actually shuts between 00.00 - 04.00 hrs

" According to the official website,Geneva Airportis closed from 12:00 AM (midnight) until 4:00AM. Still, it seems that some travellers get lucky and are allowed to remain inside, as long as they're already in the terminal before closing time.Oct 1, 2019"

Only problem is, its closed and not allowed at gva airport.

No one is allowed in terminal between midnight and 4 a.m.

Maybe in summer you could sleep under the stars, but in winter I wouldn't try it.
