Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Shannon Sixt rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, getting your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Shannon?
You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Shannon's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Shannon is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Sixt's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Shannon?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Shannon. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their getaway can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Ireland?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Ireland. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to . 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 book your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Shannon. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get your automobile with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple 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 bring the car back to Sixt. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Shannon?
Shannon definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Shannon.
Does Shannon Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
