Choose the Swiss exit and cross the border into Switzerland—by showing your passport or other ID—before you even leave the airport. From here, a drive to Basel takes only five minutes. Five car rental companies serve the Swiss zone; you can find their desks in Hall 4, Level 2 of the terminal building. Visit the airport information desk at the same location for assistance in arranging a taxi through one of several companies serving the Swiss section of BSL.
