If you will be driving on the Autobahn, you’ll definitely want to rent a car with lots of power and quick speed. However, you won’t want a really big car because of the narrow roads. A really good GPS/navigation system will also be important for your trip.

Berlin is a vast city with various attractions and neighbourhoods that are spread out, making public transportation difficult and time consuming. With a hired car, visitors can easily reach all the popular destinations, including the iconic Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Building, as well as less touristy areas like the trendy Prenzlauer Berg district. Additionally, car hire provides the freedom to take day trips to nearby attractions, such as the beautiful Sanssouci Palace in Potsdam or the charming city of Dresden. With a hired car, visitors can avoid the hassle of navigating public transportation and enjoy the city on their terms.

Pros:Staff was super fast and ready for my pickup. The car was incredible. We took the BMW X3 and seriously Considering buying this car! So smooth and the features are incredible. Lots of space.
Pros:Overall the experience with sixt was nice - the car was totally new and comfortable. Although I received a premium-class car, I reserved SUV, but not sedan that I have received. That was unfortunate and rather unexpected, given the size of luggage and the quality of countryside road I was going to.
Cons:I would prefer a faster reaction - if sixt can't guarantee even the car class, then I would prefer an immediate cancellation. When I hear that my car is not available at the counter - that's already late for last minute changes.
Cons:I called to Sixt before coming to office and they proved that the car is ready. When I came to the Sixt office Berlin Tempelhof they didn’t give me the car. Moreover they told me that my account is blocked in their system but it is impossible. I had to wait then sent email to their security system and got this response: “ Dear Mr. Povetkin, In reference to your request, please notice that we decided to do not fulfill the reservation mentioned above and so please accept this decision and refrain from further requests regarding this matter”. This is insane and I had to find rapidly another service, that was Europecar and they gave me a car in 5 minutes. Please consider this for further bookings. BR, Dmitriy
Pros:Location was easy.

Cons:Avis charged me more money than I was supposed to pay
Cons:Beware of renting with Budget/Avis outside of the US. I rented a car for the day in Berlin and was charged over $1500 USD in fake damages. The car was checked in in PERFECT condition and they billed my credit card $1523 USD later that day. Sadly, the user reviews about the office in Mitte all indicated the same experience. Wish I had followed the advice to avoid this company, but as a loyal customer, I thought I would be safe. Not this case. I will never use this comany again. To small court claims court we go....
Pros:Very helpful agent, worked hard to get us what we needed.
Cons:The line took a long time.
