Germany didn't have a proper network of roads when Martin Sixt started his company.

CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Playa Del Carmen is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Sixt's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Playa Del Carmen. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Playa Del Carmen vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Mexico. You can buy additional insurance through Sixt for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through Mexico. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Sixt does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Playa Del Carmen. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Sixt.
Playa Del Carmen definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
