When Martin Sixt created his company in 1912, Germany did not have a modern network of roads. With forward thinking, like putting branches at airports, and a priority on offering superb customer service, Sixt has evolved into one of the most celebrated international rental car companies in the world.
Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Barcelona Sixt car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. However, booking ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my rental car in Barcelona?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Barcelona?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Barcelona is 18. Take time to go over Sixt's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Barcelona?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Barcelona. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Barcelona vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Spain?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Sixt in Spain. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Barcelona. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Sixt car rental?
Sixt does require a deposit when you book your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Barcelona. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Sixt car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Sixt. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Barcelona certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Barcelona Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
