Geneva motor show: a guide to tickets, prices, how to visit

The Geneva motor show starts on 3 March 2015 – and as well as reading about it on, you could be there yourself.

The Swiss auto show’s geography means that it’s a cinch to fly there and back from the UK in a day, and affordable ticket prices ensure that you could in fact visit it for a price comparable to a trip to the now-defunct British motor show.

At time of writing, return air tickets from London to Geneva started at £100 via budget airlines – not dissimilar to peak rail fares from many parts of the UK. Check more frequently, and you’ll probably find cheaper. 

Entry prices to the Geneva motor show

Tickets to the Geneva car expo cost from 16 Swiss francs (£11) for an adult and 9 francs (£6) for a child from 6-16, pensioners and disabled visitors.

Children aged five and under are free to enter, and the organisers offer group rates for groups of 20 or more visitors of 11 Swiss francs (£7.50).

Turn up after 4.00pm any day and tickets are half price, leaving you a maximum of four hours to browse the two main halls.

Geneva motor show opening hours

The 2015 Geneva motor show is open to the public from 5-15 March.

Halls are open from 10.00am to 8.00pm Monday to Friday, and from 9.00am to 7.00pm at weekends.

Where is the Geneva motor show held?

The Swiss motoring mecca is at the exhibition centre right by Geneva airport, a short 10-minute walk away from the terminal. Trains from the middle of town take quarter of an hour. The Palexpo arena is located here:

Route François-Peyrot 30

Telephone: +41 22 761 11 11  

The 2015 show promises to be a good one: there’s everything from the new Ferrari 488 GTB to the new Honda Civic Type R and Audi R8
