Clean, nice and gentle. Good service 👍


We were able to pay everything with a Visa Debit card, altough the hotline in germany told us it's not possible. The staff was very nice an competent. He told us if we bring back the car an hour later we would get a better car with full insurance for the same price. Great deal. Everything worked without trouble.

Good service and nice cars!


We rented a car here, overall experience was good. Our booked model was not available, but what we were given was a good strong car. It was the second ride, so brand new basically. The experience to book and take car was good, the drop off was by ourselves. You cannot rent on weekends unless you go by noon on Saturday.

Came to the desk in desperate need as my initial hire company had let me down.


Very helpful and friendly and really good value for money.

Sixt Åkersberga never let’s one down when it comes to car quality, service and value for money. Pointless to look anywhere else.

Matthias B.

Not everything is perfect at this rental station and the fact that you have to take the bus with all your luggage is not ideal either.

But: Best offer for category B at Sixt, we could choose between 3 cars, handover was quick, staff very friendly, drop-off without problems and very quickly done.

As long as Sixt's competitors don't manage to make similarly favourable offers, it will continue to be Sixt for me...
