We usually drive to our holiday home in the Vendée from the UK, but this time we'd flown into Nantes, so we needed to hire a car.
We chose Sixt because they rent out EVs, and we opted for the Fiat 500 EV.
The airport is relatively compact, so it was easy to get to Sixt on foot. In fact the cars were located just behind the office, so overall it was a smooth experience to get to the car.
We were met by a friendly, & very attractive lady, who spoke perfect English. She offered us the additional insurance, but it wasn't a pressured sales pitch. We have annual car hire insurance by Allianz, so we didn't need it.
The car was a pleasure to drive, and suited our needs for the week. It came with a charger, and a type 2 lead.
Drop off was straightforward, with another friendly member of staff, who checked over the car, & took the key.
I've rented cars around the world, over many decades, and at times it can be the worst part of a holiday, dealing with pushy sales people, trying to upsell larger cars, or insurance... Sixt wasn't like the at all, and we'd certainly use them again.
They are probably the only company I know of, that rents out EVs, and all credit to them for offering customers the electric option. We drive a Tesla at home, so it was nice to be driving in an emissions free car on holiday.
We appreciate that there are many car hire options at Nantes, but if we choose to fly again, Sixt will be our go to company.
