Basel is the third largest city in Switzerland, located along the Rhine where the borders of France, Germany, and Switzerland all converge. With over 27 museums Basel is truly a cultural utopia.

The Kunstmuseum, (Fine Arts Museum), is the oldest museum in Switzerland. This spectacular museum has painting collections by Van Gogh, Picasso, Chagall, Gaugin, Klee and more.

Other sites of interest in Basel include the Basler Zoologischer Garten and the Basel Cathedral. The Garten is one of the greatest zoos in the world, famous for breeding endangered animals in captivity. A 26-acre park in the middle of the city, this zoo houses 4,500 animals of 600 different species. The Cathedral, originally built in 1019 and subsequently destroyed by an earthquake and rebuilt in 1356, was designed in the Gothic style and has functioned as an Evangelical Reformed Church since 1529.

Cosmopolitan, sophisticated, and prosperous, Basel has numerous shops whose merchandise rival that found in much larger cities. And after shopping or walking around the city, Basel offers good restaurants and pubs.

Due to it's position near the borders with France and Germany, the city offers interesting day trips by car into these countries. Nearby, in France, is the Vosges region, and just over the border into Germany is the famous Black Forest.

If you are flying into Basel you will actually land at the Euro Airport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg which is 5 miles over the border in France. This is no problem as there is frequent bus services from the airport to Basel. Though there are no flights from North America directly to the city, there are frequent flights between Zurich and Basel. Zurich’s airport offers flights to and from cities around the globe.

Frequently asked questions

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? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). 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? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
