10.0 Excellent9 May 2017
Pros: An update by email on the type of CAR will help prepare better.
8.0 Excellent8 May 2017
Pros: Location was good, lovely car to drive and clean.Cons: Not clear on website that you need two forms of IDENTITY, driving licence and passport so we had to go back home to get it.
4.8 Okay30 Dec 2015
Don't pay for the excess waiver!Pros: Car and price were good. Good location.Cons: The car was filthy on the outside although they did offer me a car wash voucher. I didn't take it as I hadn't accounted for the extra time to get the car cleaned. By far the worst experience was being upsold the insurance excess waiver, even though I'd taken a policy with Kayak at the time of booking. I could kick myself for paying for this as its a complete rip off. The girl who served me sowed sufficient doubt in my mind that the policy I had already paid for (excess waiver), wouldn't in fact cover me should I damage the car. Take my advice, if you take out the excess waiver with Kayak, don't let Sixt sell you additional insurance for the insurance excess, which they quote as £1000. I opted for the 50% waiver which still cost 40% of the vehicle rental.
