When Martin Sixt started his company in 1912, Germany didn't have a modern network of roads. But with forward thinking, like putting branches at airports, and an obligation on offering first-class customer service, Sixt has evolved into one of the most celebrated international car rental companies worldwide.
What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Gwangju Sixt car rental at a great price?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Gwangju?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Gwangju?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Gwangju is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Sixt's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Gwangju?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Gwangju. Compact or economy cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Gwangju vacation can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in South Korea?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Sixt in South Korea. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Gwangju. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Gwangju?
Gwangju certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Gwangju.
Does Sixt offer one-way rentals in Gwangju?
Sixt usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Sixt. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
