A deposit is generally charged when you rent with SIXT, and the amount depends on the country and location you are renting in, as well as what car category you book. High-end or luxury vehicles may have a higher deposit amount. The deposit amount will be charged to the credit or debit card you provide when picking up your car rental.
Rental with a debit card is possible at some SIXT branches. The debit card needs to be issued by a major financial institution, and accompanied by two forms of government ID. Not all branches accept debit cards, and you will need a credit card to rent certain car categories, including luxury and specialty vehicles.

We offer a range of useful extras you can choose to add to your rental, either when booking or picking up your car. Add GPS to find the fastest route, child seats to keep everyone safe, an additional driver to share time behind the wheel, or choose a protection package for peace of mind.

We offer one-way car rentals in many locations, whether it’s between stations in the same city or long-distance. International one-way rentals are generally not allowed. If you want to book a one-way rental with SIXT, it’s best to contact the branch where you want to pick up the vehicle and ask about their policy. Rental between two different stations may also not be available for some car categories.
An additional fee may apply to one-way rentals, especially if you are not given permission ahead of time.
