EasyCar Basel Airport

Basel-Mulhouse Airport is a French Airport, but due its close location to the Swiss border, it is built with a section dedicated to flights to and from Switzerland, and is also operated by both French and Swiss authorities. The airport serves the cities of Basel, in Switzerland, Mulhouse in France and also Freiburg in Germany, as this country shares the airport as well. Another name for this airport is the EuroAirport, and it is found in Saint-Louis, nearby Blotzheim and Bartenheim. For transport, arriving passengers can rent a car, from one of the Basel-Mulhouse Airport car rental companies, such as Easycar. Easycar is the company to choose if you prefer low car hire rates, and a company which is dedicated to providing excellent customer service.

The terminal building of the airport is large, and divided into French and Swiss sections. The airport features a new North and South terminal, constructed a few years back, and a unique customs road which allows unrestricted access to and from the airport from the city of Basel, in Switzerland. Due to an agreement established in 1946, passengers from Germany may have unrestricted access to the airport as well. There are various facilities on all levels of the terminal building, but the car hire companies, including Easycar Basel-Mulhouse Airport, are found on level 2, in the arrivals area. Easycar has rental offices in both sectors of the airport, in Hall 1 of Level 2 for their French agency, and in Hall 4 of Level 2 for their Swiss agency. The airport is open twenty-four hours a day, but the majority of flights land and take-off between 05:30 in the morning and midnight, and Easycar is open to meet all arrival flights of the airport.

The rented cars of the various car hire companies at the airport are parked in one of the nearby parking lots, within walking distance of the terminal facilities, and should be returned to this area once the rental contract has expired. Cars may also be possible to return out-of-office hours. However, if an Easycar one way hire is arranged, customers may return their car to a different rental location, either within the country of France (or Switzerland), or in another European country. Cars may be driven to most parts of Europe, and even to the United Kingdom, provided that they are returned to the mainland, but not necessarily to Basel-Mulhouse Airport. One way hires may be more expensive, especially if returned to a further location. It is recommended to confirm all details with Easycar, before your arrival at the airport.

The Basel-Mulhouse Airport car hire companies offer different types of vehicles from each of their offices within the terminal building, but on both sides, the primary renter is generally expected to meet the minimum age requirement of 21. However, drivers aged between 21 and 25 are considered as young drivers, and will pay higher rental rates for young drivers insurance. They may also not be permitted to hire from certain vehicle categories. These categories usually include luxury or specialty vehicles, or cars of a larger size. Upon arrival at the airport, all persons registered on the rental contract will need to show a valid drivers license, which has been held in their country of residence for at least a year before the rental date. Most licenses are accepted, provided that they printed in English, however, foreign renters may be required to have an International Driving Permit. A major credit card will be needed for payment of the rental period, as cash or debit cards are not accepted.

Vehicles from Easycar’s French sector at Basel-Mulhouse Airport include the Ford Ka 1.0, a Super Mini car, the Vauxhall Corsa, Ford Fiesta and VW Polo in the Economy category and the Peugeot 308 1.6, VW Golf 1.4 and Ford Focus in the Compact category. Mini cars are the smallest, and are hired with the lowest car rental rates, while Compact cars are a little larger. All smaller cars are light on fuel and eco-friendly. Cars ideal for families with more luggage include the Ford Mondeo Turnier, which is an estate with room for four luggage items, and the BMW Serie 3 Touring, an estate of a slightly larger size. The Renault Megane Scenic, VW Passat, Opel Zafira and Ford Galaxy are also popular cars enjoyed by many of their renters. Similar cars to these mentioned are found at Easycar’s office in the Swiss section of the airport, but SUVs like the Opel Antara 2.0, and Fullsize vehicles similar to the Saab 9-5 are also available.

Easycar is a newer car rental company when compared to others, such as Hertz and Auto Europa, but have already established over 2,400 rental locations in more than 60 countries around the world. They are favoured for their excellent car rental rates, which include an online booking discount, unlimited mileage, breakdown assistance, third party liability insurance, collision damage waiver, theft protection and all taxes and fees associated with the vehicle or rental location. Their vehicles are also of exceptional quality, and regularly checked for safety.
