Private Transfer Basil to Zurich

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used a private transfer from Basil to the airport in Zurich?  We will be arriving in Basil from our River Cruise and need a rather direct trip to the airport.  Thanks

Have you looked into Swiss Rail?  Zurich airport has a train station in its basement.  From Lucerne, it was an easy 1 hr trip.  From Basel, don't know.

The train is probably faster than a car would be, although you do have to get to the train station in Basel.

Viking arranged for a cab to take us from the ship to the Basel SBB station.  20 min. ride, cost under 30 euro (if my memory serves me accurately).

I would expect other cruise lines would be as accomodating

How many people are in your group?  We have used gettransfer.com      For a party of 8 it was cheaper than the train but, it will be very expensive for 2. Quotes are free and you get quotes from several different people.

We used https://transfer-service-ch.com
 

it was pricey, but very efficient.  Picked my wife and I up at 7:30 am in Basel At the dock and was at the airport in about an hour. Car was a Mercedes Limo.  Cost was 280 euros. Others took a taxi to the train and then train to airport.  With 2 weeks worth of luggage I did not want the hassle.  Probably would have saved $100 or so, but for a vacation costing over $20K it was not significant.
