Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Coimbra Sixt car rental at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Coimbra?
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Coimbra's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Coimbra is 18. 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 determine if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Coimbra?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Coimbra. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Coimbra getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Portugal require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Portugal. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on 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 car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank 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. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Coimbra?
Coimbra definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
