Peter B.
Very helpful staff.
Katherine B.
Drop off at this location was super easy, with clear signage and helpful directions from employees. The whole process took less than 5 minutes, which on a busy travel day was very appreciated. The location was easy to find by following my Google Maps to the hotel and then following the Sixt signage. We really appreciated the terminal drop off van as well, which was timely and very helpful with our baggage. We would use Sixt again in the future!

Jim P.
Cars are always new/well kept, the staff are friendly & helpful and it's not difficult to get in and out of the location. Sometimes it's a bit pricey but when I can find a deal I'm confident I'll have a good experience with them.
Rajko S.
The station is easily accessible from Terminal 5, directly in the Hotel Sofitel, where the garage with Sixt cars is also located. No unnecessary walking distances and transports to the car. Returning is just as easy, well signposted as soon as you leave the motorway to Terminal 5, there are signs to the hotel and Sixt return.
brandi t.
Using Sixt for our two week car hire was a positive experience from start to finish. We encountered no problems, the vehicle was in great condition, and the recommendation from Grabriel at Heathrow was spot-on. I will reuse Sixt again as my first choice.
