Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on a Dumfries Sixt car rental?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my car in Dumfries?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Dumfries's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Dumfries set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Sixt's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Dumfries?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Dumfries. Economy or compact automobiles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Dumfries trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Scotland require car insurance?
In Scotland you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Dumfries. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Dumfries. Please be aware 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 tank policy. You should get your vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Sixt.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Dumfries?
Dumfries definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Dumfries.
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 at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
