Avoid the Walthamstow Branch

There are a rip off. Car was wet when I collected it. Therefore could not see any dents or scratches, when I returned the car their inspection showed a dent in the drivers door, which was probably there when I collected it. They charged me a whopping £532.00 for the repair, which was so small could have been done for £150.00 they refused to negotiate. However I had taken out cover for £9.99 on the web, so it was paid by the Insurance co. Finally don't take their Hire Insurance it is also a rip off. Find it cheaper on the web. AVOID SIXT like the Plague.

Extra money taken with no explanation

I hired a car In Madrid for one way rental to Alicante. I was told in Madrid that every bit of damage to the car would attract a charge that would be subject to an excess. So they told me if the car was returned with two dings it would be potentially 100's of euros each rather than an excess for total damage. This seemed a bit unbelievable but I bought the full insurance including windscreen and tyre damage. I did get a punctured tyre on the second day. I rang the office and they said not to worry and there was no cost as it was covered. Two days after returning the car I noticed an extra charge of 74 euros. I attempted to contact them for an explanation but never got any reply. I have read other reviews where other people had similar experiences. It seems the company is untrustworthy and will take money off you even after maximum insurance. Use a more reputable company and avoid this one.

Car hired and used wholly in the UK , invoiced online in sterling,but payment taken in Euros

I hired a car in Belfast. All the prices quoted online were in sterling but the payment was taken in Euros. I therefore incurred a "Non-Sterling Transaction Fee" from my credit card provider. Sixt should make it clear online that payment will be taken in Euros.

Very bad service and fraudulent charges.

Very bad service and fraud.
After prepaying for a rental $278 went to pick up the car Gabriella from the pickup location (seattle,WA) Was rude and called her manager and said that I requested a cancelation, no I requested that someone help me by offering the service they claimed to have when I made the reservation, she called me rude for asking her if they could scan the printout that was sent to me, she called customer service wanted her employee number, I ask her for her number she refused customer services request, If customer service cannot help me, and the franchise is not even responsible to Sixt, something is wrong they refused to help me and committed fraud by taking my money $278 no refund. reservation number: 9803915066 not only did you commit fraud by stealing my money, it wasted 2 hours of my vacation being on the phone and trying to get help, ended up going to Another Rental agency and they had no problem helping me

I thought the days of rust bucket rentals was gone?

Having hired a VW Polo or similar from Belfast Intl' Airport I was pretty sad to be given a Kia Rio with nearly 50K miles on the clock and not a single VW in the car park. Why we allow these hire companies to miss sell like this I don't know and why the major car manufacturers who spend millions on there brand allow these companies to use the product names in false advertising is beyond me.
Although the paperwork had said there was no damage to the car the immediate impression was a very bad scuff to the lower bumper obvious from 25m away. The rear number plate was falling off and the passenger door had been brutally attacked with torn rubbers and scratches. The Car should have been disposed of ages ago.
On top of the £80 extras charged including £24 to take the car over the border to southern Ireland (Really?) not a good experience. Wouldn't hire from them again.

Awful service - avoid

I arranged to rent a car a few weeks in advance to get the car I wanted. When I arrived for the rental they told me it wasn't available and gave me a horrible replacement. I urgently needed the car by that point and had no choice. When I contacted Sixt customer services they were rude and unhelpful.

Beware Sixt Cyprus, but are Sixt UK any better?

After being "accidentally" short-changed by Sixt at Paphos Airport last year (see my separate review under Sixt.com) I was pleased that when I complained to Sixt UK I was refunded not long afterwards. However I was annoyed at being refused a refund after being charged twice for - in effect - the same thing. Having paid a 15.21 euro "Airport Service Charge", and in view of Sixt's website (then) showing Paphos Airport's opening hours as 0.00-24.00, I didn't expect a supplementary "Out-of-hours pick-up" charge of 10.53 euros after our flight landed at its scheduled (and not unreasonable) time of 9.30pm. Surely the 1st charge should include the 2nd! At least Dick Turpin had the decency to wear a mask.

A Rip Off!! And never answered my complaint

I got charged 140 euros extra for the insurance when I picked up the car. However the insurance was included when I booked online. This is insane! Such a rip-off.
Plus I realised that on my booking, I paid 35 euros for a baby-seat that I never added to my basket, this is not mentioning that the baby-seat was not even in the car...
I filed a detailed complaint to Sixt explaining the problem and giving the booking ref. They never bothered answering. Sixt really don't care about its customer.
