Extremely happy with Sixt Athens downtown . Staff were helpful, polite and professional. We got a really good (I think upgraded for free). The downtown location is central and convenient for pickup and drop off. Thank you for a great experience.

Had a mix-up with our car booking with another company which kinda left us stranded at the airport. Mariana at the Sixt desk in the airport did everything she could to help us out and get us on the road with as little fuss as possible. She was an absolute star.


Furthermore, for one reason or another, this is the third time Sixt has offered us incredible service like this. It's not a once off and the company should really be proud of their staff and everything they do.


We are full blown fans now and will never hire from another. Just unbeatable.

Make sure to inform them upfront if you need to use your phone for navigation. Some of the cars they have are not new and lacking a modern infotainment system.

We booked a last-minute rental car with Sixt Rent a Car Paros and are satisfied with our experience with the company. The staff (especially the manager from Athens) was helpful and professional. The car itself was clean and reliable. Transportation to and from the location is complimentary.

Julia Pricella F.

They were very very nice, efficient, very informative, thorough, helpful, and went out of their way to give us recommendations on where to go sightseeing.

We rented an Audi A4 because that's all they had available when we walked in looking for a rental car. They gave us such a sweet deal on it that we did NOT have to pay 01 cent on any damage to our because it a fully insured, and we did hit a curb while parking and the car did have some damage. So we were very very happy with the results.

I DO HIGHLY recommend this car rental.

I’ve rented from Sixt Corfu a couple of times. The desk is inside the terminal building. The desk staff are friendly and helpful. You collect your car 100 metres from the terminal doors. No shuttle bus!!! Process is very simple and quick. The cars are in good condition and I would say the team are fair in recording the car’s condition at the start of the rental. I’ve only had a positive experience with Sixt. I’ll use them again
