Great price and

Great price and overall very pleased with service. Only reason this is not a 5 star review is that I do not like to pay for fuel at the counter and be expected to return empty. It seems all car hire companies have adopted this policy which I do not like.

Car was as desc

Car was as described and price was good. Fuel policy was not ideal for us as only had the car for 3 days but had to pay for a full tank that we only used 3/4 of. A little disappointed but seemingly this is standard policy throughout the industry - come on Rhino, what can you do to help here?

The airport is split into two sectors for travellers from and into France and Switzerland. We can arrange car rental in Switzerland from over 40 pick-up locations so if hiring a car in Basel isn't convenient or you want to return elsewhere in Switzerland we can help.

Latest Update from Basel Airport:

02/05/12 - 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.

04/06/13 - 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.
