Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Bern Sixt car rental?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I pick up my car in Bern?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Bern's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Bern is 20. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Sixt's policy to find out what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Bern?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Bern. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Bern vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Switzerland require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Switzerland. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Bern. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Sixt.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Bern definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
