What you need to know about car rentals in Santa Cruz
How do I get a Santa Cruz Sixt car rental at a great price?
We try to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. However, getting your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Santa Cruz?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Santa Cruz?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Santa Cruz is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Sixt's policies to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Sixt rental car should I get for my trip to Santa Cruz?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Santa Cruz. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle 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 model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Portugal?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Sixt in Portugal. 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 luxury or larger 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 through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Sixt car rental?
Sixt does require a deposit when you book your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Santa Cruz. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Sixt car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle topped off. 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 fill up your tank before you return the car to Sixt. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Santa Cruz definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Santa Cruz Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different location. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
