Came to pick up my car rental at 6am and not counter was not open yet. We didn't get our car til 630am. They didn't have the car we rented so they upgrade us. Wish they would offer some sort of discount for the inconvenience.

No one at the counter and waited for 15 minutes. First car we got had a nail in the tire even before we got in the car. Luckily we saw it before we took it on the road trip. Got an exchange

I had a great experience with Sixt car rental. They weren't trying to pressure me into buying their insurance when I told them I had purchase it online. They had a friendly host @ the counter. I would rent from them again.

We usually recommend that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
