Cross-border travel

Whether you can take your SIXT rental into other countries depends on which of our three zones the country falls under, and the car category you have booked.

Best places to visit in Spain

  • Barcelona: This is one of the most popular cities in Spain for visitors. Barcelona is home to incredible history, culture, and amazing architecture. The highlights of what to see here are La Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, and Casa Mila, all designed by the famous artist Gaudi. When you’re done sightseeing, stroll down La Rambla, the main street for shopping, or head to the beach.  
  • Madrid: The capital and the largest city in Spain, Madrid is full of personality. Visit the lively Plaza Mayor, the main square. You’ll also want to check out El Retiro Park and the Royal Palace of Madrid. For shopping and amazing food, head to the Gran Via. 
  • Mallorca: This is the perfect destination for beachgoers and outdoor adventurers. Mallorca is home to the Drach Caves, an underground tunnel of interconnected caves. You’ll also want to see the lighthouse at Cap de Formentor and the Castell de Bellver for panoramic views of the island and the coast. And finally, check out the beautiful beach of Calo d’es Moro. 

Summer in Spain

Spain is an incredible summer destination. It gets hot, so you’ll want to take measures to stay cool. With its beautiful islands and beaches, you’ll want to rent a convertible to enjoy the sea breeze as much as you can. Summer is also the perfect time to head to places like Ibiza to explore the scenery and the nightlife with ease. If you’re more of a city-dweller, check out Barcelona, as the city comes alive with culture and events in the heat of the summer.

The service was very good

And that is why Sixt is by far the best car rental company i've ever used.


Firstly, it was super easy to find with directional signages everywhere to easily find the offices. Once there, we were instantly welcomed, asked questions about our booking and were on the go.


Juan and Helen, both unbelievably friendly, competent and well informed about everything we had to ask.


Not to mention, we were given various options of upgrades and they eventually gave us a complete upgrade to one of their most luxurious cars, all because of using sixt multiple times in my past.


Truly, a wonderful experience.

It was our second time with Sixt Espana and it was great. Staff speaks English very well, is insanely nice, high-cultured, open, and friendly. They have answers to all your questions, will help you call a cab and recommend nice locations to visit. Cars are clean and well-kept.

I have had some experience with hiring cars and at this moment in time yours is the best experience I have had in a long while your employees are always polite and courteous and are very good at speaking English I have not had any problems with any of the vehicles I have used and they are always clean and well maintained thank you


Very good experience !!!

Holger B.

It was amazing. I had lost my smartphone in the parking lot when returning the car. Coincidentally, friendly people handed it over at the Sixt counter in the terminal. A message with my name was displayed on the smartphone's lock screen and the employee there remembered that she rented the car to me a week ago. She called her colleague in the parking lot, where I just at these moment was looking for my smartphone again. And that's how I got my phone back. Great people!

We received incredibly good customer service. In addition, we were surprised with a good car and in the future we will only use your services!

Convenient and easy on airport pick up of a clean and well maintained vehicle, No delays in either pick up or return. Courteous and helpful staff.

Siegfried J.

Booked in advance for good price. Very good and friendly service on site - but take a close look at the insurance details. I was surprised to have to pay extra to insure the tires!

p D.

Solid 5 star from me outstanding service great price highly recommended

Monica S.

We have always found the price and quality of the vehicles at Sixt to be excellent. The staff are helpful and informative and do not get pushy or rude when we explain we have our own insurance cover - which hasn’t always been the case with some other companies in the past.

Helpful staff. Convenient location. Easy in out.
