Excellent service and vehicles! I will use them again upon my return to this beautiful country!


Me and my girlfriend went on a vacation to Iceland between 2nd and 12th of September. We rented a blu Dacia Duster. Over all, to make this short, we had a great experience renting, using and returning this gravel-road-friendly car. ♥ We did 3400km on roads and gravel roads. We got the car totaly dirty. We busted the licence plate a little, but at inspection they said it doesnt matter and the didnt charge anything for it. After few days after returning the car the wrote me a mail, that we crossed a tunel (which is true) and they were sent a bill for that (i think it was 2900ISK) that they charged us afterwards, which is only fair. So over all we were absolutly satisfied with their service and them being fair and informative. :)

Only issue was wright at the beginning when we were waiting for pick up at the arirport. We waited around an hour for pick up, which wasnt to much of an issue for us. But apart from this we were very very sattisfied with the car and overa all service :)

From my experience I would recommend using SixT and especialy 4x4 cars when in Iceland ;)

When we were waiting in line to pick up our car, we were scared as we heard 2 Americans travelers being asked to pay an extra 400 Euros or maybe it was 800 Euros. They asked to speak to a manager and it seems he came up with a solution that they seemed happy about. My guest is that they though the limit was 400 miles and not 400 KM.


My experience was good. We booked for a Renault Capture or similar and we had a Corolla 2022 Hybrid. The car had 2 very light scratches that were already identified. They however didn't identify 2 light stains found on 2 seats.


They was not much preasure to upsell us to take the insurance. We did ended up taking the unlimited millage option which turned out to be useless as we drove 400 KM (I guess the preasure came from the story of these 2 travelers and a mistake in our planing).


On the return, they will carefully inspect the car, specially the windshield (which is the only thing we forgot to inspect on pickup).


I would return to this location again and I highly recommand a hybrid car. We had a fuel consumption of only 4.5L and we filled for only 20L which ended up coasting about 65$ CAD (about 3.25$ CAD /L). Don't be cheap and pay the extra for a hybrid.

Thanks to the Sixt team and especially James!

We had a very good experience: process to take the car was smooth and diligent. James was very nice and gave us very good advice for our roadtrip. Their offer (rental of a Toyota CHR) was also very good, especially given the current high prices in Iceland.

Much appreciated team, thanks a lot.

As one of our first experiences in Iceland was getting a rental, Sixt was fantastic. We were in and out in less than 15 minutes and headed out on an Icelandic adventure. Our contact Nadia really knew what she was doing and made the process easy and stress free! Just make sure you follow all the directions and everything will be great! Management does a great job keeping the vehicles clean and orderly and the employees seem to enjoy working for them! Definitely will be using them again.
