Location information for Basle

Basel is known for old-school buildings, art museums, and medieval architecture that can be easily explored on foot, but travelers who intend to explore beyond the city centre usually arrange car rental at Basel Downtown. Go beyond the city's nooks and crannies with a more in-depth trip to surrounding attractions.

Basel has a good public transportation system, which is also relatively affordable compared to the systems in other neighboring countries. You will need to buy tram or bus tickets in advance at a station. About $11 buys you a ticket that allows 24-hour unlimited travel in 2 geographical zones. Once-only (single) tram tickets cost about $2.30.

Taxis tend to be expensive, so travelers who want to go further usually take the tram or arrange car rental at Basel Downtown. You also have the option of renting a bike (the kiosk by the information booth at the train station in the city centre offers bicycles). You can use it from 7am to midnight for a $26 fee.

Those traveling in groups often find it more economical to just book cheap car rental at Basel Downtown. Arrange your rental vehicle ahead of time on the internet, and you can enjoy even bigger discounts. Having your own vehicle lets you explore sights at your own schedule and pace.

Some Basel hotels also provide a mobility ticket to its guests; it gives tourists free use of the city's public transport system throughout their stay. Ask reception upon check in.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
