Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on a Basel Avis car rental?
We try to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my vehicle in Basel?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Basel's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Basel is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Avis's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Basel?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Basel. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Basel vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Switzerland?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Switzerland. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Basel. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Avis require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Avis does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with full tank, and you should return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Avis.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Basel?
Basel certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Basel.
Does Basel Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
