Frequently asked questions

We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. But reserving your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Kourou?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Kourou?
Most suppliers in Kourou require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to review Sixt's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Kourou?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Kourou. Economy or compact cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Kourou getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in French Guiana?
In French Guiana you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger 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 Kourou. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with full tank, and you should return it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Sixt. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Kourou certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Kourou.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
