What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best rates on a Canberra Sixt rental car?
We strive to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I bring with me when I get my car rental in Canberra?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Canberra's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Canberra require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Sixt's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Canberra?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Canberra. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Canberra vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Australia require car insurance?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Canberra. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt does require a deposit when you book your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Canberra. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Sixt car rental?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the 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 return the car to Sixt.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Canberra certainly 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 car at another Sixt. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
