Frequently asked questions
How do I get an Amsterdam Sixt car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my vehicle in Amsterdam?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Amsterdam's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Amsterdam is 20. Take time to check Sixt's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Amsterdam?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Amsterdam. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Amsterdam getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Netherlands?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Netherlands. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Sixt. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Amsterdam definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different Sixt. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
