Do you have any up to date information about free parking in saint louis near basel/mullhouse airport ? Is it still possible, and if so, where exactly ? (as close to the airport as possible)

I park in white boxes in 4056 Basel , outside the casino which is 1 bus stop away is the closest you will get.

White boxes are in theory unlimited, been there for upto a week myself.

St Louis used to have loads of unlimited free parking, however most is limited to 4 hours now. However the chances of your car being broken into to steal the radio or whatever are very real. I am talking about within 50m of a border with customs.

Re: free parking in saint louis ?

you mean even if i park at the swiss side? or you mean that it can happen in st louis?

i have built in gps/radio thing, would be hard to take it out, other than this my car is insured against theft/etc. so should be ok... i hope.

Although i would rather not test it, had car accident caused by somebody else and it was nightmare with my insurer (basel versicherung by the way, but done directly via web, so baloisedirect... )

Swiss side is fine, a new window will cost more than a radio \ GPS , the thieves won't know it can't be removed!

Re: free parking in saint louis ?

sorry to ask you such specific question but my flight is monday early morning and google street view only partly covered this area

so you park somewhere around address Flughafenstrasse 225 and 215, so between grand casino and hotel airport on the street? but probably not at the grand casino parking itself ? lots of sings to parkings there, if it's also free, maybe it's also an option

6*14=84

i think i need 15 days though, so it's 91 eur according to this webpage:

http://www.euroairport.com/en/parking/tariffs.html

that's a lot in my opinion.

I hear that Mariott has free parking. Say hello to Nicole at Pitcher's sports bar.

Oh wait. Wrong St Louis again.
