It was great. Meaghan at pickup was wonderful in making the process so easy. We were jet lagged and very out of sorts and she handled our silliness with brilliance. Thanks Meghan.

I was hugely disappointed overall. Just to change the pick up from city center to the airport turned out to be impossible. The location in city center is very difficult to find, even by cabbies. And to get a car big enough to accommodate our luggage, that had been fully explained in our request last September, cost an additional 500 pounds. What was a good deal turned into exploitation. Either lose all our prepaid money or pony up the extra money and drag all our luggage into the city center to get a bigger car. We’re all in our sixties— not good customer service to me! With Hertz, we spent half us much for two weeks as we spent for one week with Sixt. Kane at the airport and Adam at city center were very helpful at getting us in a larger vehicle but at a cost. On the other hand, the online assistance was non existent. Rude, extremely slow to respond and not helpful. I won’t be using Sixt again.

There were SO MANY HIDDEN FEES. Everything else was fantastic, the service, the car, it worked wonderful and drop off was easy, but the amount we paid on pick up was astronomical.

Our car was not available when we arrived and it took 2.5 hours for them to get a new one. The replacement car was much larger so they charged us double for the “upgrade”. Very unhappy with the experience.

The location is hard to get to, and the representative tried to upsell us to a Mercedes for an additional 500 pounds to the point of almost arguing with us that we booked the wrong car. The online insurance I bought was also not accepted either and we had no idea until I got to the counter, so I lost that money too. It cost me another 250 pounds for their insurance. The car was clean, and got us where we needed to go.
