Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Melbourne Sixt rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Melbourne?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Melbourne?
Most suppliers in Melbourne require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Sixt's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Melbourne?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Melbourne. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Melbourne trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Sixt in Australia. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger 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 Melbourne. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on 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 vehicle for your trip to Melbourne. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with a full tank. If you return your 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 fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Sixt.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Melbourne?
Melbourne definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different Sixt. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
