Jul 2017

Cons:

At drop off , Barbra, customer service extremely rude when I asked her why the extra charges, she kept saying she didn't care and it's not her responsibility when I questioned the extra charges

4.4 Okay

Jun 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was new

Cons:

it wasn't the car I had booked. I booked a compact like a VW Up or similar, manual, for 143 and ended up getting a massive Skoda Rapid wagon, automatic, and had to pay almost double the price for it at 217. I had no time to argue. But I got thoroughly ripped off. Will stick with Hertz

Super easy pick-up. Drop-off on Sunday evening was a bit difficult as they have few parking spaces available - it was a tight squeeze to leave the car.

Pros:

No pressure to take out additional insurance. Car was relatively new in perfect condition.

Cons:

No one at the desk at Airport when we arrived to turn in the car

Pros:

they were very friendly despite the fact that I had the wrong pickup time and was 6h later

7.6 Good

Jan 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

Pretty much everything. Drop off at MUC is excellent, takes just seconds

Cons:

Hertz office at Dreispitz in Basel is hard to find. Signs lead to a carwash, not to the office. The vehicle had two tires inside, taking up the entire trunk space. The guy at the office was telling me unbelievable stories that I have to carry those tires with me. Fortunately in another Hertz office they gladly took those tires from me.

Oct 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

Everything about the rental went smoothly, the car was clean and comfortable.

Cons:

It was a bit confusing to find the rental place, since Basel airport has a french side and a swiss side. Of course it's not Hertz's fault, just pay attention if you're renting in Basel airport. Another point is that we paid in advance for a second driver and ended up not using it - would have been nice if there was an option to add another driver in the middle of the trip.

Cons:

Didn't realize that there wasn't an easy way to get from the airport to the downtown Sixt location. And then when our flight was late and we couldn't get to the downtown location before they closed, we couldn't transfer our reservation to the Sixt airport location because we prepaid through kayak. We ended up paying for an additional car for one day and then we had to drive back to the city the next day when the downtown location was open to get it all straightened out. It was kind of a pain.

Car rental insurance in Basel

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Basel car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Basel.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Basel car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Basel

  • Basel is a great place to be based, especially with a hire car. A vehicle will allow you to explore not only the city’s main attractions, such as its many art galleries and museums, but also other destinations in Switzerland, Germany, and France. Head to Rotteln Castle in Germany, which is only about 25 minutes away from Basel, or to the Black Forest for some fairytale-like views.
  • EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg (EAP) is about a 10-minute drive from Basel’s city center. The airport is divided into two sectors, the French one and the Swiss one, and you can circulate between both through the access area on the terminal’s third floor. Car hire desks on the French side are located on level 2 of Hall 1, and on the Swiss side they can be found on level 2 of Hall 4.
  • Because the Old Town area can be tricky to navigate, opt for parking the car in the surrounding areas instead. If you do drive there, remember that trams always have the priority. Dipped headlights must be on at all times. If you drive through rural areas, be cautious as you may come across herds of animals crossing the roads.
  • As with any main city, Basel experiences some heavy traffic during peak hour, so avoid driving between 6 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., and then again between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. during the week. The A35 heading to the airport can also get quite congested during rush hour, so if you have to be at the airport at a specific time, plan your journey accordingly.
