The rental process and transport was smooth and employees were excellent. Even with a late night arrival. The vehicle was clean and had a great navigation system. Return was easy.

Infran at the counter was very helpful. I don't carry credit cards, only cash, using my bank debit card with a deposit was easier than going to dollar rent a car. I've never rented from sixt before but i will now!!! I really enjoyed my experience. Car was clean! Not used to hybrid- no power on demand to them. But loved the gas mileage it got. Made it easier to get my daughter's medical issues taken care of, less stress an this trip was really enjoyable. Thank you sixt team at Denver airport! An thank you Infran for your kindness an being a good man!


I rented a car from Sixt at Denver Airport, last week, and it was a really great experience. The shuttle was right there when I came out from baggage claim and the driver was nice and the bus very clean. I tried doing my online check-in during the shuttle ride to secure my preferred vehicle but it was way too bumpy to take a decent picture of myself or my drivers license. (Lesson learned, will try to do that prior to getting on the bus, next time)

However, when I walked into the rental office there were plenty of staffed counters and no wait, and the car I saw on the app was still available. I was very happy with the friendly service and my brand new BMW X3!

Returning the car was a breeze, I got back to the airport much faster than expected. Overall a wonderful experience and I look forward to renting from Sixt again.
