Parking at Lausanne Train Station

Can anyone recommend a (safe) parking lots at/near Lausanne train station? Is there an 'offical' one?
I have to fly out of Geneva airport for a long weekend, and I've heard parking at the airport itself can easily fill-up at times... train seems like the best option, but need to car to get down off the mountain.
I fly out Wednesday afternoon.
Regards,
Bill

Re: Parking at Lausanne Train Station

Hi,
I was flying out of Geneva airport every two weeks for the last 2 years (stopped doing it so regular since Xmas) never once been unable to park at the airport. I used to park in car park P1 which was right next to the airport. Also used P51 or P26 which are a very short walk away.

Don't bother with the train, driving and parking there is much easier. Up to you though.

Re: Parking at Lausanne Train Station

an update...
I did end up driving to the airport. Got there about midday wednesday.
P1 and P51 were both full... ... this was not good as i was rushing to make my flight...

but the nice people at europe-car took my big silver beast (aka range rover) parked it, washed it and got it back form me.

cost just over CHF120... for over 4 days parking, the wash and the convenience of it all. This seemed pretty close to the rate i'd have paid just for parking the car myself.

I'm not connected to europe-car in anyway, but i can recomend their valete paking service at geneva airport. http://www.gva.ch/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-303/

Cheers

Bill

Hi Bill,

I agree that it is easier to park at the airport.

For future reference, there is a car park at Lausanne train station. It's just behind it (i.e. lakeside).

Don't know the tarifs off by heart but it is quite expensive from what I remember (like all the car parks in Lausanne!)

Jenny
