Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Koeln Sixt rental car?
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Koeln?
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Koeln's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Koeln is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Sixt's policies to find out what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Koeln?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Koeln. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Koeln vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer 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. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on 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 book your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Koeln. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Sixt.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Koeln certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Koeln.
