buena atención, calidad en el servicio, coches prácticamente nuevos.

(Translated by Google) All good.


The sad thing is to give 5 stars because I have not had problems. So it should be a normal car rental.


-Very fast pickup of the vehicle. Agile procedure and the lady who attended friendly and leader.


-the car was perfect. Why? Because they gave me a bad high-end one. the detail is appreciated.


-the same fast returns.


-and then no extra charges on the card.


the only but would be that the deposit was blocked a week after returning the car.


After reading comments about airport car rental companies with horror stories about charges for scratches on the tires, which happened to several clients, or companies that look at your car with an ultraviolet flashlight, I decided on this one.


I had no problem with them. What should be the norm in any car rental.





Todo bien.


Lo triste es dar 5 estrellas porque no he tenido problemas. Por lo que debería ser un alquiler de coches normal.


-recogida del vehículo muy rápida. Trámite ágil y la señora que atendías amable y dirigente.


-el coche estaba perfecto. Porqué Porque había me dieron uno de gama mal alta. se agradece el detalle.


-las devolución rápida igual.


-y luego nada de cargos extra en la tarjeta.


el único pero sería que estuvo bloqueada la fianza una semana después de devolver el coche .


Después de leer comentarios sobre las empresas de alquileres de coches del aeropuertos con historias de terror sobre cargos por rayas en las llantas, que les pasaba a varios clientes, o empresas que te miran el coche con linterna ultravioleta me decidí por esta.


Yo con ellos no tuve ningún problema. Lo que debería ser lo normal en cualquier alquiler de coche.

Véhicule impecable, par contre tarifs surfaits avec l’excuse du Coronavirus.


J’ai dû restituer le véhicule 3 jours avant car les autorités Suisses ont mis l’Espagne sur la liste officielle des pays depuis lesquels les voyageurs seraient mis en quarantaine et SIXT ne m’a déduit que partiellement !!


Dommage car pour un motif valable comme celui-là j’étais en droit d’attendre que ces 3 jours ne soient pas facturés.

Impeccable vehicle, on the other hand overpriced with the excuse of the Coronavirus.


I had to return the vehicle 3 days before because the Swiss authorities put Spain on the official list of countries from which travelers would be quarantined and SIXT only partially deducted me !!


Too bad because for a valid reason like this I was entitled to expect these 3 days not to be charged.
