Great place to rent a car from. I accidently made a reservation for the wrong dates, and Markuita was able to not only assist, but make me feel like I was part of the sixt family. She did an amazing job and the whole process was super quick.


Every time I've been to this sixt, the customer service has been exceptional.

Had not previously rented from SIXT , but have to say the experience was great from start to finish. The staff were super helpful and efficient, the car was great, pick-up and return were hassle-free, and the price was right on. Will definitely rent from SIXT again!

Big thanks to Markuita Foggie for all the help and patience during my car rental issue ( 5 ☆s ). Small improvement in this airport branch would be providing free wi-fi to international clients, like myself, that are struggling with data issues / connectivity by their country suppliers. That would made my day a little less stressful. Car was clean , almost brand new. Can't thank you enough Markuita !
