Great cars and excellent customer service at the counter. However, better transparency with regards to viewing or accessing the vehicle pre-inspection would be great. We didn’t realize until after we departed that it was delivered via email and was not inclusive of all the interior and exterior damage. Lastly, we had to stop at a local car wash as the vehicle exterior was dirty and covered in water spots. Not what we expected for a premium car rental given the condition of the vehicles we received in past rentals with Sixt. All that being said, friendly and courteous staff, with great a great selection of premium vehicles that are comfortable and fun to drive.

I have only used this company twice. They are wonderful. Brian was such a sweetie. He was so very friendly and very pleasant to talk to. Got me in and out quickly with no wait. Even helped me get the confirmation email sent to me in English instead of the Spanish version I was getting. I will continue to use Sixt each time! Great customer service. Thank you Brian for being so helpful and for a great experience!
