Whatever you end up doing in Cairns, if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having your own automobile is a must.
Germany did not have a modern network of roads when Martin Sixt started his company in 1912. But with forward thinking, like putting branches at airports, and an obligation on providing superb customer service, Sixt has evolved into one of the most well-known international car rental companies in the world.
What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best prices on a Cairns Sixt rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Cairns?
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 Cairns?
Most suppliers in Cairns require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to review Sixt's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Cairns?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Cairns. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Cairns vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Sixt. 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 luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through 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 reserve your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Cairns. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Sixt.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Cairns certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Cairns.
Does Sixt offer one-way rentals in Cairns?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another Sixt. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
