Hello, I'd like to check for a car mid size, for 5 people with space for luggage for the 17 of July for 6 days from Basel Airport
Hi, thanks for getting in touch, depending on the amount of luggge you have and the type of driving you plan, I would suggest at least a compact car, but perhaps an estate car to easily handle the luggage, but this is up to you.
I want to hire a car at mulhouse airport and I have 2 questions: 1. I have to drop at 4 am. Is it o.k? any additional costs?
Hi, if you have searched on our website and the cars are showing as available then this is fine, however there might be an out of hours fee but this will be clearly stated at the booking stage where applicable. If you can let me know your rental dates / times I will run a quote and check this for you.

Latest Update from Basel Airport:
- If you're travelling to Basel Airport this summer you'll find it can be a little confusing for travellers. The main confusion lies in it having three airport codes, MLH, BSL and EAP depending on which airline you use. Don't panic though because the codes all take you to the same airport.
- Last year saw a meteoric rise in passengers at the airport with a near 16% increase. This year more routes are being added to Antalya, Lille, Tuzla and Tel Aviv so expect it to be even busier.
