hello RS wonderful forum,
This is a pretty specific question that was posted on another travel forum by someone else and the answers seemed less than satisfactory . I wondered if this forum had any better options for the original poster. Also, the poster only wants parking recommendations, not advice regarding alternative ways of traveling.
I would like to go to Basel by car on a semi-regular basis (let us say for a week or two once per month or two months). I´m looking for a way to park my car for this week or two without paying an arm and a leg. I know a visitor pass costs 20 CHF per day, but this is for the city. I do not need to park in the city itself, as i am fine with an up to cca 10 km scooter ride. So i am looking for a way to park either for free or for a reasonable fee outside of the city, if at all possible on the Swiss side.
The airport, as far as i know, has affordable parking spots mainly on the French side, and there is some free parking on the German side. In the current situation, i don´t want to have to cross a bunch of extra borders. So i would very much like to find a safe and affordable place to leave my car. I am also familiar with the white spots situation, and how most of them actually only offer free parking for very limited amounts of time. I am absolutely willing to pay some money for this, but 20 CHF per day just seems criminal. Does anyone have any smart ideas? Thank you!"
