Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on an Istanbul Sixt rental car?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Istanbul?
You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Istanbul's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Istanbul is 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 find out what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Istanbul?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Istanbul. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Istanbul getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Turkey?
In Turkey you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or 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 Istanbul. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book 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 vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Sixt car rental?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Sixt. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Istanbul?
Istanbul certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Istanbul.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another Sixt. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
