Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Bordeaux Sixt car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, booking your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need to bring when I get my car in Bordeaux?
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Bordeaux's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Bordeaux is 18. Take time to check Sixt's policy, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Bordeaux?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Bordeaux. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Bordeaux getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does France require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Sixt in France. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, 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 issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt requires a deposit when you book your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Sixt car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Sixt rental topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Sixt. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Bordeaux certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Bordeaux.
Does Bordeaux Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Sixt. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
