What you need to know before you go
How do I get the best deals on an Essex Sixt car rental?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Essex?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Essex?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Essex is 21. Take time to read through Sixt's policies, as there may 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 Essex?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Essex. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Essex trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United Kingdom?
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Sixt. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide 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 issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Sixt car rental?
Sixt requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Essex. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Sixt. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Essex certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again 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 more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
