To the employee at the vehicle returns. Thankyou so much that you saw I had dropped my purse on the car seat and came chasing after me to hand it back to me. You are a star and were a top example of the the whole rental experience with Sixt putting customer care as a priority.

Regular car hirer using Sixt Heathrow for the first time and I would use again. There is a free taxi transfer service from Terminal 4 using the telephone on the Sixt desk after arrivals. Sixt branch is located on the first floor of the Sofitel and I found the staff member helpful and patient as I had a problem getting my card to work. Car was a Mercedes GLE. Previous customers had given it a hard time but overall it was good. Price was excellent when booked enough in advance. Return is easy and well sign posted in the car park. Was directed to use the Heathrow Express to Terminal 4. Took about 30 minutes from the car park in Terminal 5 to arrive at Terminal 4. Allow 40 minutes in case of waiting a few mins for the next train. Don’t buy a ticket just tap your phone on entry and on exit. Didn’t cost me anything.

Nice cars available and very helpful and friendly staff at the location. Everything always goes smoothly with them. I highly recommend SIXT at T5 as its easy to get to from london on the tube and a good place to pick up a car after staying in london. Well done the Team at SIXT and thank you Camila and Gabriel!

Although it took a long time at the reception desk before we were seen to pick-up our car, the staff were exceptionally polite and professional and did a good job once we were seen. We were disappointed with a low-tire pressure warning on the car when we received it, but this was ultimately resolved and the rest of the rental went just fine and the car met our needs well for the 20-day rental. This was the first time I'd rented a vehicle privately, and I'd definitely use Sixt again in the future.

It was easy to pick up and drop off the car , Heathrow Sofitel hotel counter. Sonia , counter staff was so patient and friendly. Highly recommended to her. Drop off service is easy and got receipts no extra charges so far. But we don’t know yet because it is just only a few days. After a few weeks we might get some extra charges for penalties and fines. But we hope not happen ☺️☺️☺️☺️
