What you need to know before you go

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Madrid?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Madrid's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Madrid is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Sixt's policies to find out what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Madrid?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Madrid. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Spain?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Spain. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to .

Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Madrid. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should get into your car with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Sixt.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Madrid certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Madrid Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different Sixt. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
