Car rental advise

We are looking to rent a car in Annecy and then driving to Chamonix for 2 days then on to Nice and leaving the car there when we arrive. We are looking for any advise on rental companies, route plans, driving versus train. This will be our first time driving in Europe.
Also we will be in Annecy for 2 1/2 days, 3 nights when would be a good pick up time for the car?

Try AutoEurope for car rentals. Also, you can use Hotwire. Both have worked out ver well for me in the past. I prefer AutoEurope and my husband prefers Hotwire.

I also use AutoEurope or Kemwel for my rentals. These two companies are auto brokers and use companies such as Hertz, Avis and Europcar for your rental. You can see their fleet of cars and prices online. However, I always call them to finalize my rental. If you have AAA, ask for a discount. If you plan on seeing the outlying areas of Annecy, you may want to rent your car upon arrival. Otherwise, you could wait until your departure.
