Do you provide child seats?
Child seats are normally on request by the local agent. Please, be advised that each rental car agency may require a different fee for the child seat. You can find the price for the child seat in the terms and conditions of the particular quote. In case of some agencies, you can add the child seat directly at the website when you are completing your booking. If there is no such an option, please put the note that you need one and advise the child age and the weight of your child. As soon as we receive your booking with requested child seat we will ask the local agent to add it to your reservation. The payment for the service is to be paid on arrival at the local office.
For how long I need to hold my drivers license in order to rent a car in Basel?
The most suppliers require a valid drivers license for at least one year. Some agencies can ask you to provide a drivers license which is valid for more, for instance, two or even three years. We always strongly recommend our clients to see the terms and conditions for selected agency and car and read them carefully. At the time of rental, your driver license needs to have the required time of validity. This is a mandatory document and if you fail to provide it, the agent refuses to give you the car due to an invalid drivers license.
The minimum age for car rental depends on the local car rental supplier. Different suppliers may request a different minimum age in order to rent the car. We always recommend seeing the full terms and conditions for the selected car and car rental supplier in order to check that information. In some cases, the rental agency may apply for an extra charge for a young driver. The amount of young driver fee may be different for each supplier. Before you decide to rent the car and you are a young driver, please make sure that you are able to rent your car with selected company. Otherwise, the local company will refuse to provide the car.
Do I need a credit card in order to rent a car in Basel?
To be able to rent a car, you will need to have a valid credit card in the name of the main driver. Please be advised without a proper credit card in the name of the main driver you will be not able to rent a car. Prepaid credit cards, cash or debit cards will not be accepted. Also, you cannot use credit card form somebody else. If you arrive at the local office and you cannot present a credit card on your name, the local agent will refuse to give you the car. A proper credit card is a mandatory document for renting a car.
Are the cars non smoking or I can choose option for smokers?
All our cars are non-smoking and there is no possibility to choose a car where you can smoke in. Why? This rule is mainly settled up due to your safety and comfort. In many countries it is forbidden to smoke when driving and if the local police stop you can get a high fine. Hot ash from the cigarette can destroy the car seat or other parts of the car when falls on the upholstering. It also leaves a very unpleasant smell which is very difficult to remove and therefore forbidden. Other customers can refuse to take a car like this.
