We hired 5 mini-buses through Sven @ Sixt for a golf trip that covered the North Coast & also Donegal. Everything from initially booking, paperwork, airport pick-up procedures, insurance clarification, drop-offs & the quality of the mini-buses themselves ran like clockwork - big thumbs up from us and we will be using again for our golf trip next year - many thx Sven.

David could not have been more helpful. He arranged for a car to be delivered to the Newtownards Airport for us and had it collected after we departed. He was friendly and incredibly helpful setting the bar for what customer service should be. Thanks, David!

I needed to rent a large van to help with moving, David in Sixt was first class. He made the whole process a easy and straight forward. The van was clean and had plenty of fuel for what I required. Would recommend for any van or car rentals in the future!
