Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Hermanus Sixt car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. But reserving ahead of time 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 pick up my vehicle in Hermanus?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Hermanus's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Hermanus is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Sixt's policy to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Hermanus?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Hermanus. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Hermanus getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does South Africa require car insurance?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent from Sixt. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Hermanus. Additionally, as a U.S. 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 does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Hermanus. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should get your car with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Sixt.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Hermanus certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Hermanus Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different Sixt. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
