What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best deals on a Dortmund Sixt rental car?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But reserving your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make 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 get my rental car in Dortmund?
You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Dortmund's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Dortmund is 18. Make sure to check Sixt's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Dortmund?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Dortmund. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for everyone's luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Dortmund trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Germany?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered 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 with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Sixt car rental?
Sixt requires a deposit when you book your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should receive your automobile with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. 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?
Dortmund certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Dortmund.
Does Dortmund Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
