At the Sixt branch
Vehicle handover
I always rent with Sixt and I have never been let down! Markuita and Mona put the icing on the cake with the 2022 BMW 8 Series. Will ALWAYS choose Sixt! Trying any other rental agency again is like cheating on your barber 💈 NOPE not here 😂, Sixt til the wheels fall off! Appreciate the top tier business 🔥
