Car rental insurance in Basel

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Basel car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Basel.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Basel car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Basel

  • Basel is a great place to be based, especially with a rental car. A vehicle will allow you to explore not only the city’s main attractions, such as its many art galleries and museums, but also other destinations in Switzerland, Germany, and France. Head to Rotteln Castle in Germany, which is only about 25 minutes away from Basel, or to the Black Forest for some fairytale-like views.
  • EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg (EAP) is about a 10-minute drive from Basel’s city center. The airport is divided into two sectors, the French one and the Swiss one, and you can circulate between both through the access area on the terminal’s third floor. Car rental desks on the French side are located on level 2 of Hall 1, and on the Swiss side they can be found on level 2 of Hall 4.
  • Because the Old Town area can be tricky to navigate, opt for parking the car in the surrounding areas instead. If you do drive there, remember that trams always have the priority. Dipped headlights must be on at all times. If you drive through rural areas, be cautious as you may come across herds of animals crossing the roads.
  • As with any main city, Basel experiences some heavy traffic during peak hour, so avoid driving between 6 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., and then again between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. during the week. The A35 heading to the airport can also get quite congested during rush hour, so if you have to be at the airport at a specific time, plan your journey accordingly.
