Rental agent was terrific! Very helpful!
Kenneth J.
I wasn’t too sure at the beginning of what kind of car I was going to get it! After the staff member initiated me on the car I was very well pleased and comfortable for the whole three weeks of my stay! The car was actually perfect for my needs… Thank you
Mike M.
The agent was extremely helpful and walked to car to verify it would work for us(it did). He was quick and efficient getting paperwork done and us on the road. Would definitely recommend as all the cars are more of the luxury brands and was cheaper than most other rentals. Thank you!

I want to thank Kaine, the young fellow with whom I made the rental contract. He was extremely helpful during the business transaction. He also was very helpful in a different way. I didn't feel well and he picked up on that. He offered me to sit down and gave me some water. Shortly after I collapsed and had to go to the hospital. He called an ambulance and helped them find me. I had serious food poisoning ... For the sake of not making this too long. Thank you Kaine! Your are a wonderful person and I hope my little thank you gift reached you. I hope you have a great life, A

I had a great renting experience at SIXT, from getting the car to returning the car. First class all the way!
Yancy B.
Rented a vehicle short notice through expedia after we missed our connection to Scotland the night prior. I've never rented from Sixt so I wasn't sure what to expect. The experience was very good. Staff was friendly and helpful at checkout and return. Car was clean and in good repair. The young lady who helped us even went out in the rain to retrieve the car for us! Car return was very easy and quick. The only negative I can say is the Edinburgh Car Rental center is very small. All the different companies and their customers makes for a cramped lobby. This in no way reflects on Sixt or any of the other companies. My experience with Sixt was very pleasant and I will use them again in the future.
Kind and reasonable, we had a great experience
