Básicamente consideraba a sixt como una muy buena compañía......

en experiencias previas al menos en América.... está ocasión teníamos planeado un viaje por españa, y no dude en rentar con sixt.... sin embargo por la cuestión mundial, en relación con la pandemia fue pospuesto nuestro viaje, después de múltiples correos y promesas de reembolso, en múltiples fechas.... simplemente dejaron de responder los emails... es una pena porque los consideraba de las mejores y más serias compañías de renta de autos........


ADD: 16/06/2020 Reembolso realizado, les agradezco. Esperamos reservar en septiembre, saludos.

Basically I considered sixt as a very good company ......

in previous experiences at least in America .... this time we had planned a trip to spain, and do not hesitate to rent with sixt .... however due to the world-wide issue, in relation to the pandemic our trip was postponed, after multiple emails and promises of reimbursement, on multiple dates .... they just stopped responding to emails ... it's a shame because I considered them to be the best and most serious car rental companies ........


ADD: 06/16/2020 Refund made, thank you. We hope to book in September, greetings.

The price and quality of the vehicle was good. Unfortunately we had a poor experience at the check in desk. The staff person tried to up-sell us in a very aggressive and misleading way that would have cost us considerably more money. Details aren't important but it was a really disappointing experience.

Super, qualified staff & no hassle.
