After a terrible experience with Thrifty at Cairns airport where the staff only had an interest in taking selfies, I approached Geordie at the Sixt Counter about hiring a small vehicle for at least 7 days, and although he initially said he had no vehicles available, he searched around and found that one had just been returned but would need to be cleaned. I was more than happy to wait, and the rental ended up being 12 days. My experience with Sixt took the very bad taste out of my mouth left by the very substandard Thrifty. Five stars to Sixt, I would highly recommend.

Rental booking was easy, and payment made at car pick-up point. The only disappointment was the car advertised was a new Mitsubishi outlander but when we picked up it was the older model.

Recommend the "Mystery Car Deal" Value for maoney and still a good car. Efficient pick up and drop off experience. Rarely would yuou give 5 stars for car rental, but given my last zero star experience with Hertz, these guys are doing a great job. My go to rental guys from now on
