Really easy service, quick and efficient but not forthcoming in stating the deposit system as we had $500 deposit taken when we were told 200. But still, brand new car which was a joy to drive.

Booked online and collected our catr from Granville. I needed to request 2nd driver and RAC discount, so be prepared to do that. We booked a hybrid but didn't get one, although the camry was very economical. A bit disappointed though. The deposit is actually withdrawn from your account if you use a debit card, not just an authorisation, so someone is earning some interest on your money. It is also not refunded for up to 5 business days! Despite these things, we would likely hire through SIXT again, just a bit more aware for next time.

I hired a Toyota corolla for 30 days from SIXT in Campbellfield. The process was straightforward with an online booking, great friendly service at both the time of pickup and dropping off. It was quick and simple. The car was great to drive and very clean. Overall a great service. Thank you and I look forward to using SIXT again in the future.

Amanda at the Taree branch was amazing. She gave a personalized service and the best deal she could as we needed to keep extending the days we needed the truck and she was an absolute delight to deal with. Nothing was a problem for her.
