What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Basel Budget car rental at a great rate?
We try to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, getting your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Basel?
Make sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Basel's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Basel is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policies to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Budget 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 vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Basel trip can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Switzerland?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget in Switzerland. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Basel. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Budget.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Basel certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Basel.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
