My recent car rental experience with Sixt was exceptional, thanks to the outstanding service I received from one of their employees upon returning the vehicle. I highly recommend Sixt especially Battery park branch for their reliable and customer-oriented services, and I extend my gratitude to the exceptional employee who made my rental experience truly memorable. Five stars all the way!

On May 24, 2023, I had the best rental experience ever! There’s a young woman whose name is Kay. She was the specialist we encountered that booked our reservation. Her service to us was phenomenal! Not only was she extremely professional and courteous. Kay went above and beyond to ensure all of our rental needs were met with excellence! Kay ensured that we had all the proper coverage(s) necessary to ensure a peaceful and hassle free rental experience.

I had the most phenomenal experience with Sixt Rental service located at 20 Morris Street in Manhattan NY. My server was Kay B and she was the absolute sweetest and thorough professional. Since this was my first time using a rental car through Sixt, I was a bit nervous but Kay took total care of me and walked me through each step of the process. Not only that, but Kay gave me a complimentary car upgrade once she noticed a better vehicle was available and said she wanted to award me since I was being so patient. I honestly felt like I was a part of the Sixt Family and I will definitely be coming back whenever I’m in need of another rental. Huge shout of the Ms. Kay B.!
