What you need to know for the road
How do I get the best rates on a La Rochelle Sixt car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, reserving well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in La Rochelle?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in La Rochelle?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in La Rochelle is 21. Take time to go over Sixt's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to La Rochelle?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in La Rochelle. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short commutes 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 offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little extravagance on their trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in France?
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent from Sixt. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase 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 book your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Sixt. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
La Rochelle certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Sixt offer one-way rentals in La Rochelle?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
