In this trip I required a car for my bussines trip, that means everything was arranged by my company. About the service at the airport in Budapest the staff is friendly and kind, only now because there were some remodelations at the parking lot was a little bit confusing the drop off from the car, reason why I needed to walked 2 times from the airport to the parking lot, "TIP" check at the rear area from the parking for the container office. The car was clean when I picked it up and when I droped off the car, the revision was fast and easy by Marci, nice agent !

Péter S.

It was the first time i made a rent here but was definetly not the last.

The staff was really helpful, and answered all my questions professionally.

The handover and return went smoothly and quickly.

The rented car was nice and clean without any issues, just like a brand new car from a dealership.

Norbert is a gentleman with a heart of gold and a smile that fills one’s soul with the elation of a flower meeting the morning sun.


Have rented cars with Sixt at Budapest Airport a few times now. Consistent quality and very friendly staff. Last time I got a upgrade. Instead of a Kia Picanto I was given a Kia Ceed. Also I did not book extra insurance, since Sixt won't scam you with scratches and stuff. Just fill up the petrol tank before turning the car in and you're fine. I will choose Sixt again when in need of a rental car in Hungary. Excellent and recommended

I was lucky to have Petra for my first experience with sixt and she was a delight. She was new, but very knowledgable, and perfect English. My car was just what I had reserved, only new - ~ 275km total!

Q for sixt: there was a space for the spare tire but nothing in it - is that normal/ expected?

Marci, probably the youngest of the team members at Sixt is the most emphatic and professional person I have met servicing a client. I arrived at the parking area for my car forgetting to register at the airport terminal. Marci drove me back to the terminal and waited for me to drive me back to the car parked. He wasn't required to do this but still did it to ease the discomfort of his client. Cars quality and prices are similar with most reputed rentals but people make a difference to improve the experience and a lasting impression with the brand.

Best service as always at sixt. The hand over by Bea was well done!
