Customer reviews & feedback

Melissa L.
Great service and reasonable prices. The staff was friendly and fast, everything you want and need in a car rental company. The car was clean and in good condition. We extended out rental by phone and the process was very simple. We will definitely use Sixt again!

Gene A.
The experience was fast and seamless. Will rent again at this branch.
Vidisha S.
We rented a car for 4 days from Frankfurt to Cologne for the Dental show. The entire process from getting to know options, insurance, payment, picking car etc was so easy peasy. Had a great experience with Sixt and much much recommended for car rentals. You need to get an International driving license to drive in Europe. Its a left hand drive so only go for rental if you are comfortable with the roads. The drop off system is also very easy and can be done at any terminal near train station or airport. We went for a full insurance which costs a but hire but it covers everything! Except for life insurance. The only other thing they could have possibly done is helped us out with a map with must visit places or atleast the parking zones. Because parking in EUROPE is a hassle!!!!
Tal H.
The staff is kind and caring as always with Sixt. It's just a bit hard to find the entrance to the park house. Always happy to recommend Sixt!
Darius S.
Great service, polite employees, professional work.
Alexandra S.
Very hidden place. No signage in the train train station for rental cars. Parking garage is a labyrinth and no help from Sixt personnel to find the rental car. My experiences with Sixt have been much better in other places and countries.
Ryan K.
Good competitive prices and decent service, there is a good selection of cars to suit most budgets. Ordering on the app or website is easy and I have had no problems when picking up or dropping the car off. The only annoying part it the location of the pickup/drop off point. The location is super if you are arriving from the main station, but one way systems, and traffic In the city can make it difficult to drop of the car if you are unfamiliar with the area.
Volker N.
Very nice service. Effective, fast and friendly.
