Car Hire at Basel Airport - Information

Basel-Mulhouse Airport is located in the heart of western Europe, at the crossroads of three very important economical areas, namely, Alsace (France), North West Switzerland and Baden-Würtemberg (Germany). It therefore serves large cities in three different countries, and is one of not many airports in the world jointly operated by two countries. It is commonly referred to as the EuroAirport, and its IATA codes are listed as BSL, MLH and EAP. More specifically, the airport is located in the commune of Saint-Louis, nearby the Swiss and German borders.  Basel Car Hire companies offer quality vehicles and reasonable rental rates for all in need of a hire car, whether it be for business or leisure purposes. Although buses are available, in a rented car is often the preferred form of transport.

Passengers of the airport will either arrive on the French or Swiss sides of the terminal building, as the airport features two ‘sections’. Both sections are well equipped with all essential facilities, and the car hire companies have rental desks in both sections as well. The Swiss side of the terminal is directly connected to the city of Basel by unique customs road, which is accessible without any French border restrictions. Passengers from Germany are also allowed unrestricted access. The terminal is large, as the airport handles over four million passengers per annum, but is relatively easy to navigate. The car hire companies are found on Level 2 of the building, which is the arrival area. In the Swiss sector, car rental desks are found in Hall 4, while in the French sector, car rental desks are found in Hall 1. The car hire companies are open to meet the majority of arrival fights at the airport, however, out-of-office hours collections and returns could be possible as well.

The Mulhouse Airport car rental companies include Hertz, Europcar, Budget, Avis, Sixt, National, Alamo, Easycar and Auto Europa. This is a busy rental location, and passengers should therefore hire their car in advance. Online reservations often come with discounted rental rates, and the peace of mind in knowing that your ideal car is ready and waiting for your arrival. It is also best to reserve any optional items of equipment required for your journey in advance, for example, child seats or satellite navigation systems. These items are subject to availability. The vehicles of the Basel-Mulhouse car hire companies are parked in one of the nearby car parking areas, within walking distance of the terminal building.

In order to rent a car from this location, from either the French or Swiss side of the airport, the primary renter will need to be at least 21 years of age to meet the minimum age requirement of the majority of car hire companies. Some even offer a lower minimum age. However, all drivers under the age of 25 will pay higher rental rates, in the form of young drivers insurance, and may not be permitted to hire vehicles from certain car categories. These vehicles are usually of a larger size, or of a special make and model. All drivers registered on the rental contract will need to show a valid drivers license, be present to collect the vehicle, and will need a major credit card in their own names. Most local licenses are accepted if printed in English, but in some cases, an International Driving Permit may be required.

Before leaving the airport, ensure that you are comfortable with the workings of your hire car, that you have the emergency numbers to contact in case of an accident or breakdown and that you are aware of the fuel-type to be used for your vehicle. A detailed report of all existing damages should also have been filled out prior to leaving with the vehicle. When returning to the airport, the vehicle will be checked for any new damages. There is also a petrol station at the airport, useful for anyone who will need to return their rented car with a full tank. Access to the French petrol station is found next to car park F6, and the petrol station at the Swiss side can be accessed from next to car park S3. However, from the airport, one way hire services can be arranged for most vehicles, which allows customers to return their car to a different rental location. Find out further details from your chosen car hire company should this be a convenient option for you.

It is also wise to clarify your route of travel before leaving the airport, especially if you are unfamiliar with this region of France (or Switzerland). The main road leading to Mulhouse, France, is the A35 motorway, while to Basel, the Flughafen Strasse airport road is most convenient. Both highways can be busy during peak traffic hours. After Mulhouse, the A35 continues north towards Colmar and Sélestat, and from Mulhouse as well, the A36 leads west-southwest to Belfort and Montbéliard. In France, the following speed limits should be obeyed: Urban areas – 50km/h or 30mph, open roads – 90 km/h or 55 mph and on motorways and highways – 110km/h or 70mph. From the airport, Saint-Louis is a five minute drive, Mulhouse half an hour, Colmar fifty minutes and Belfort an hour. Strasbourg is about a seventy-five minute journey. Although many passengers hire a car for Switzerland, some consider public transport to be a better way to travel, especially within busier cities such as Basel. From the airport, Basel is a five minute drive, Lucerne and Berne an hour and Zurich about fifty-five minutes.

Smaller sized cars available from the Basel-Mulhouse Airport car rental companies may be similar to the Smart For Two, Fiat 500, Renault Twingo, Ford Fiesta, Opel Corsa, VW Polo, Mazda 3 and Nissan Micra, while larger family-sized cars may include the Opel Astra Sports Tourer, Mitsubishi Lancer, VW Passat, Volvo V50 Break, Opel Zafira, Ford Focus C-Max and VW Touran. More elegant vehicles manufactured by BMW or Mercedes are available, and large Vans seating seven or nine passengers are ideal for groups of travellers. Vans include the Ford Galaxy, VW Sharan, Renault Grand Espace, Ford Transit Bus and Renault Trafic. All vehicles hired can be expected to be in excellent mechanical and overall condition.

One more option possibly available for disabled drivers at this rental location are hand controls. This device can be rented free of charge, and is suitable for persons with a lower limb disability. Hand controls should be reserved in advance, as they are available only on certain types of vehicles.

Contact your chosen Basel Car Rental company for further details.
