Thank you Salmon M for finding us the perfect vehicle to get back to New York. Our flight was diverted to Dulls and hertz was not trying to accommodate anyone who was just going one way. The SIXT team come through for us !

I had originally rented my car from Sixt NYC and was on a long road trip. The car is one of the most important aspects of my trip and every single time Sixt exceeded my expectations. Long story short..the car i rented in NYC had a electrical issue and I drove it down to Sixt Dulles who immediately made sure i was taken care of ..... Small skills like this is what creates loyalty. Special thanks to Ralf and Rimon who went the extra mile for my many mile journey!

Had a great experience with this company. I've rented cars from them on several occasions. They have an awesome collection of automobiles to choose from.

I was glad to have been given the advertised model. You usually feel ripped off when the rental car is handed over and has nothing to do with what you ordered!

I had booked for a Toyota Rav 4 or similar and received an upgrade to a Mercedes. What a pleasant surprise. The check out and return procedure was quick and efficient.
