The Lyft integration with Sixt is an excellent concept and mostly works. Be careful to notice the insurance coverage question as the app appears to say insurance is included but at the Sixt desk it seems like there can be some confusion. It’s worked out both times I’ve used the app but the second time the desk person was not aware of the inclusion. Otherwise the vehicle choice and quality has been top notch. And there’s been no wait time at all which is also a bonus of using non-Hertz type company.

Great Rental Cars, Great people checking in and out. Joe T. checked me in and Steve ( I believe) checked the car back in . Both are very professional and made the process seamless. Sixt knows how to chose their front line people!!
