Very friendly staff and helped me with any questions I had
Cat H.
Efficient, polite and friendly customer service. Car in excellent condition. No trouble at all on collection or return of the vehicle. We will definitely book direct with Sixt rather than an intermediary next time, even though it costs a little more.

Natasha C.
Absolutely great service! I rang to say I would be a bit late as my flight got delayed and Abraham done his best and asked his college to wait as I wouldn’t get in until after they closed. I explained I had a funeral the next morning. Awanthi had waited for me and couldn’t of being anymore helpful. Awanthi went out of her way to send me an email wishing everything went as good as it possibly could and hoped I got home safe. Such lovely people, will be going back to them very soon.
Cindy E.
Customer Service was awesome. Car was great. BUT A $40 PROCESSING FEE FOR A TICKET RECEIVED IS ABSURD! They should be ashamed of themselves!!!
