What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Salzburg Sixt car rental at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my rental car in Salzburg?
You will need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Salzburg's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Salzburg is 21. Make sure to check Sixt's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Salzburg?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Salzburg. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Austria require car insurance?
In Austria you do need to have insurance before you rent from Sixt. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide 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 company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Sixt car rental?
Sixt requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Sixt rental topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Sixt.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Salzburg definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Salzburg.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different Sixt. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
