SIXT's location at Florence Airport

At FLR, the SIXT car hire branch is in the Car Hire Company building that is a 3-minute shuttle ride from the Terminal. Outside the terminal look for the bus stop for the shuttle for car hire companies. This bus will take you to the branch where you can collect your Florence Airport car hire. Cars cannot be returned to the airport, rather follow the signs to the Car Hire area and SIXT branch. A shuttle will take you to the airport and it is important to return your vehicle at least 30 minutes before you want to be at the terminal building.

In general this is a good sixt branch. I am giving 4 stars because they have a very limited amount of cars. I had a sixt roulette and was given fiat 500. The only car I could have upgraded was x4 even it was low season in Florence. Comparing to other sixt branches around Europe I wish they increase their car range/availability.

We rented a fiat 500 and we got upgrade to Spyder 124 for free. The lady was really sweet and nice. We had the full coverage which was really nice not to think about anything, that’s why we didn’t have to check if there is a scratch or not on the car. The deposit money returned to our account after 5 working days.

Hassle free and recommended.


One note: I had to call their central office and nobody picked up, so I’m not very secure about their customer service.

We returned our car here after renting it in Rome. They gentlemen who helped us was very friendly and finished us up in less than 5 minutes. We plugged this into our GPS and had no trouble finding the place. I think this was the easiest rental car return I have ever experienced. Good job Leasys. Car and service were above exceptional.

Really good place to rent a car, got a brand new jeep. Fast service, not expensive and reliable. Only hard thing is to get them on the phone.

Got a car here in October, 2019.


– Really nice website, easy to use and you can book a car without any prepayments.

– Great option of full insurance (not every place has it).

– Easy to reach: 20 minutes on direct tram from Santa Maria Novella (train station, city center) to the airport and then 5 minutes on foot/on free shuttle to renting office.

– Very helpful and friendly personnel!

– Great car (we rented Fiat 500).
