I have rented many cars in the past and Sixt was easiest I have dealt with. The agent, Mr Quinn welcomed me and explained my options and was very honest with me. I had the same agent on my return and he made the return just as easy. The facility was clean, the car was clean and the staff was outstanding. I will be using Sixt again.

In the past we have had major, recurrent issues with rental companies at Shannon Airport. (Mainly these issues relate to unethical charges before and after the rental. We have read much online about problems renters have had at Shannon.) This was the first time we had a lovely experience with no bogus charges and excellent service in general.We also want to commend Sixt for the very helpful infographic sheets that were provided with the car. These helped refresh our memories as well as clarify questions we have always had about driving in Ireland. We want to commend Sixt for a next-level rental experience at Shannon.
