Vehicle return
At the Sixt branch
Vehicle handover

Hat tip to a very professional and excellent member of staff at the Gatwick branch of SIXT - Rhys. Took the time to engage, recommend a suitable vehicle and then kindly walked me to the vehicle to make sure all was in place and met my expectations. Very well done!
Michele J.
Very happy with the service from Sixt
Tony M.
I selected the Lucky Dip car and was provided with a VW T-Cross auto which was good considering the price paid. Service both on collecting the vehicle and returning it was prompt and courteous. I have used several different car companies before when renting from LGW, and would willingly return to Sixt.
Peter V.
I had a great experience with my rental on March 15, 2023. The agent was polite and experienced, my wait time to be served was less than 5 minutes and the agent processed my reservation and documents very efficiently and expertly. He helped me locate the place where I was able to pick up the vehicle. Exiting the rental area was also easy and the return of the vehicle was easy as well. I returned the vehicle very early on a Sunday when no staff was there, but the drop off box was clearly marked which made it easy for me to leave the vehicle quickly and safely. Within a few hours I received a conformation e-mail from Sixt that my return was processed successfully. Oh, one of the best things about this rental was that it was very close, just a few minute from the terminal, so I did not have to take a shuttle to and from the rental! I highly recommend this place.
