Location information for Basel Airport

Basel Airport is known as BSL for short. It mainly services Basel, Switzerland. Yet, it actually sits in France. These two nations have a distinctive deal. The airport sits on the commune of St-Louis, which is close to the Swiss and German borders. Almost five million passengers per year take off and land here. Cheap car hire at Basel Airport (BSL) is an ideal way to get around Switzerland, France and Germany.

Basel Airport is operated in a unique way. It is one of the few airports on earth jointly operated and owned by two countries (France and Switzerland). The airport is located within French territory, but it is operated based on an arrangement made after WWII in which Switzerland and France agreed to share access to the airport without inflicting any customs restrictions on each other.

BSL operates with Swiss precision. There are a handful of shops and some standard bars and cafeterias. There are not many delays and short lines. The airport contains necessities such as ATMs, newsstands and car rental but is more of a serviceable place rather than a place for shopping.

Basel Airport offers routes to cities all over western and Eastern Europe. It also has some flights to Morocco and a few other African destinations. Cargo routes which take off from Basel Airport go all over the world, even in Asia and the Americas. Budget airlines like Ryanair and Twin Jet use BSL. The airport is more admired by top airlines like Lufthansa, Air France, British Airways and Air Berlin.

Cheap car hire at Basel Airport (BSL) is available in the Arrivals zone. Several companies have outlets near the main baggage carousel. Switzerland, France and Germany are great places for car hire because highways are simple to use and taxis can be pricey. There are some good choices for a range of models, styles and colour.

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?

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?

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).
