Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Lugano Sixt rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you book. However, booking your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my vehicle in Lugano?
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Lugano's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Lugano is 20. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Sixt's policy to find out what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Lugano?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Lugano. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for everyone's luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Switzerland require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Sixt in Switzerland. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give 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 through 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. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Sixt. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Lugano?
Lugano certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Sixt. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
