What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Funchal, Madeira?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Funchal, Madeira. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Portugal?
In Portugal you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Sixt rental 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, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Sixt. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
