What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Caen?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Caen. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Caen vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in France?
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, 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 purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Sixt does require a deposit when you book your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Caen. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Sixt.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Caen?
Caen definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Caen.
