What you need to know before you go
How do I get the best rates on a Lima Sixt car rental?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you book. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Lima?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Lima's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Lima is 21. Take time to check Sixt's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Lima?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Lima. Compact or economy automobiles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their getaway can choose a higher-end car model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Peru?
In Peru 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 example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based 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 recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Sixt. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Lima?
Lima definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Lima.
Does Sixt offer one-way rentals in Lima?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
