Taxi - Basel to Zurich

We are ending our river trip in Basel at 7 a.m. Saturday morning and would like to take a taxi or van to Zurich airport for our 13:10 departure home. Four passengers and luggage. What would the approximate cost be?

Is there a taxi company you would recommend that we could contact and make arrangements by e-mail?

Thank you for any help you provide

Hi and welcome to TA! The driving time and train times are the same but the costs are very different! For four people with luggage a taxi from Basel docks to Zurich airport would be at least 250 Swiss francs if not a lot more. The train would be about 150 francs. The train arrives at the airport so there is no difficulty getting to check in. There is a direct train (no changes) every hour at 40 minutes past as well as several others with a change. It takes no more than 90 minutes and the direct trains are just an hour. If you actually get off the ship at 7, you could make the 7:40 but I'd take it easy, not rush and pan on the 0840. That puts you at the airport before 1000!

You can get al the timetables at

If you don't mind the extra expense for a taxi/imo, try this company

Hope this helps.

Try http://www.airport-taxiservice.ch/english/ - fixed price CHF 350.- instead of CHF 430.- official price with taxi clock. Good luck
