Why rent a car in Basel with Rentalcars.com?

Whether you are looking for a convertible, a people carrier or an economy car, Rentalcars.com has all your car hire needs covered. We negotiate with a wide range of brands in Basel (such as Sixt, Europcar and Unirent) to bring you cheap prices. In fact, many of the deals on our site are exclusive to us. We are so committed to offering great value, that if you find the same car with the same brand cheaper elsewhere, we will beat the quote as part of our Best Price Guarantee. Not only do we compare prices across a great choice of cars, we give you all the information you need upfront — while the handy filters make finding your perfect car easy.

Top Tips

  • The use of dipped headlights is compulsory for all vehicles at all times.
  • Traffic congestion can be a problem in city centres. To avoid city driving, use the ‘Park and Ride’ scheme.
  • When driving in rural areas, you may come across farmyard machinery or herds of cows, goats and sheep in the road. Therefore, always remember to drive cautiously.

Which companies offer best value in Basel?

If you are going to be visiting Basel in the winter, Sixt, Hertz and Europcar often include the winterisation fee (the cost of equipping the car for winter driving) in the rental price — therefore saving you money. You can also see how each company compares in terms of customer satisfaction and value for money by looking at the ratings and reviews next to each listing. We are completely impartial, but we are pleased to say the majority of the companies who supply cars in Basel have been rated as ‘superb’ or ‘excellent’.

Day trips from Basel

Lucerne: Situated 100 kilometres from Basel, the picturesque lakeside town of Lucerne is also known as the gateway to central Switzerland. This magnificent city of picturesque squares and churches is a popular destination for visitors making their way through central Switzerland. The covered, medieval Chapel Bridge forms the centrepiece of Lucerne’s townscape, and is considered to be one of the oldest covered wooden bridges in Europe. This is a town where tradition and modernity mix beautifully, and the futuristic Culture and Convention Centre (KKL) is one the city’s architectural highlights.

Château de Chillon, Montreux: Located in the heart of the Swiss Riviera on the shores of Lake Geneva, Château de Chillon is just over two hours from Basel by car. Built in the 11th century, the castle is the most frequently visited historical building in Switzerland. Château de Chillon’s numerous rooms house weaponry, frescoes and furniture. This beautiful building can be reached by walking along the picturesque lakefront or by taking the train or trolley bus.

Jungfrau Region: Situated 150 kilometres from Basel, the Jungfrau Region offers some of the most breathtaking scenery that Switzerland has to offer. The white peaks of three imposing mountains — the Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger — contrast beautifully with the green valleys and meadows of this Alpine wonderland. Highlights of the region include the Schynige Platte Cogwheel Railway; which has been bringing tourists through a tunnel under the Eiger North Face to the Jungfraujoch station at almost 3500 metres above sea level.
