Excellent experience with Sixt! We had a third row vehicle selected (VW Atlas or similar). They did not have that exact vehicle, though the agent selected a similar third row vehicle for us, the Infiniti QX80. When we approached the vehicle, we soon realized that it was a little too fancy for what our needs were (a coastal trip from San Francisco up to Seattle). The gas mileage too was concerning with that particular vehicle as well. My wife decided before we got in to just double check with the agent we received the keys from in the parking garage, if by chance they had anything else that might be similar but more gas efficient. She immediately helped us to switch to a Toyota Sienna…Hybrid!!! We couldn’t believe it, 36mpg!!! We were so happy with Sixt, and even after an unfortunate incident of a smash and grab at a state park in Oregon, the exchange to another van, a Chrysler Pacifica, went flawlessly in Portland. The drop off in Seattle was just as easy and our whole experience overall was beyond expected and much appreciated! Thank you again Sixt, we will certainly use you again in our future travels!
