Basel Airport car hire

Basel Airport car hire is easy and affordable with SIXT. It guarantees you a virtually new car, on average only 3 months old, from Europe’s top brands like Mercedes, BMW and others. We offer affordable luxury. If you’re staying in central Basel, you’ll soon find that with trams and pedestrians, a compact model is your best bet if you want to hire a car. However, once you’re out of the city and exploring the region, take your pick of our many models, like a versatile and reliable MPV. You can book extras like sat nav to help you get around easily or child seats for travelling with kids.

SIXT's location at Basel Airport

You’ll have no trouble finding our Basel Airport car hire offices (the airport is also known as EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg). Once you’ve gone through customs and passport control, look for the SWITZERLAND sign and follow it to arrive in the Swiss part of the airport’s terminus. Once you’re in this arrivals hall just look for the bright orange SIXT signage.  

Explore Basel with your car hire

Basel is a historical town filled with museums, and you can spend a good few days visiting attractions like the Paper Mill Museum, the Historical Museum and the Toy Museum. To explore the surrounding region, take a drive in your hire car to Solothurn, a beautiful town showcasing original Baroque and Renaissance buildings. The Spalentor is another historical landmark in Basel, as is the old Basler Münster church. The colourful Rathaus and Marktplatz are the most vibrant tourist areas of the city.

Lately every time I rent a vehicle from different online providers as well as directly from major players I expect all sort of problems at the counter like: you need more insurance,? or various different hidden fees, even a paid upgrade due to their negligence !


This time I hired directly from Sixt


They gave me an upgrade at no charge and respected the online agreement no questions asked. Many Thanks !

very quick and supportive service. The station is located close to the arrival gate and the cars are just a few meters away for pickup. It is a very handy location with very friendly and supportive people! Thank you, SIXT!
