Deirdre N.

Great, speedy service. Magda explained everything very clearly, including how to get out of the airport parking and was courteous and professional throughout both collection and return.

In terms of billing everything was clear, there were no hidden costs and the app is easy to use. After returning the car the deposit was back in my account within 24 hours. Overall, very pleased with the service provided by Sixt.
