You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Crete's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Crete is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Sixt's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Crete?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Crete. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Crete trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Greece?
In Greece you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give 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 company's policy before you decide.

Sixt requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Crete. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Sixt car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Sixt. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Crete?
Crete 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 typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Sixt. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
