Basel, or Basle if you happen to be French, is well placed as a car hire pickup point. The city is the commercial and industrial centre of Switzerland and is right on the border between Switzerland, Germany and France. So collecting a hire car in Basel gives you easy access to all these countries.

Not many people visit Basle for the scenery. They mostly come for business purposes or to take advantage of the city's strategic location straddling three countries. Hiring a car here does make sense for holiday purposes as it is a convenient starting point if you would like to tour Switzerland using a hire car from Basel airport to avoid the long journey down from the UK.

Basel Airport is actually in France, a few km north of the city and several airlines fly there from the UK. So if your visit to Basle is for business or pleasure what better way to travel around than in a hire car from one of our Basle car hire partners. Check out their great deals.
