Not sure why they have so many bad reviews. Maybe the management/employees changed. I had a great experience as always with Sixt. Pick-up and drop-off where very smooth and car was in good shape. Would recommend.

We had a really positive experience using Sixt at Madeira airport in June 2022, particularly at the handover part. Fabinho was super friendly and spoke excellent English - he took care to explain the specifics of the car and wider context of driving in Madeira - also giving some recommendations for walks in the process. Return was quick, easy and the check was fair.

The staff is very friendly, speaks perfect English, are calm and explain everything you need to know detailled and nicely. We booked "Intermediate" and got a sporty Audi A3 in white. We asked about the price for full coverage and he suggested we better take it because Madeira was not the kind of place where you don't want insurance and we are more than happy that we took it regarding the streets there. Therefore we got the additional driver for free. Check-out before opening times worked perfectly.

On return use exit 22 to access the parking area. The entrance is at the end of the slip-road.

I booked the car beforehand using my company's platform. The reviews here made me slightly nervous beforehand but there was no issues at all. The check-in was super fast, stark contrast with the long lines at the other side. As for some reviews here: you can just choose to not take any extras, make pictures of everything, standard procedure. The car itself was exactly as booked, good enough ride for a good stay. Madeira is a pretty mountainous terrain, so it would be advisable to know how to handle a car before renting one
