Pros:The guys at the agency were nice.Cons:The check in was a bit long I booked a peugeot 308 automatic and I got a mini The guy at the agency presented it as an upgrade as my car wasn't available. I didn't know yet what I was getting into so I agreed. If I would have known how uncomfortable this car was I would have said no!!! I booked the 308 to have a spacious and comfortable car to do our tour of Scotland. The mini didn't match our expectations in comfort at all!!!! We had to have a break every hour because of the pain on our backs and legs!!!Reviewed 30 Aug. 2017

I did not get a car in the end!Pros:Nothing I'm afraidCons:Sixt asked me in advance to bring driving license, ID and credit card which I did. On arrival they asked me to provide a DVLA code and/or NI number which I didn't have! Sixt staff in Edinburgh were not helpful at all, they were patronising and even rude. After long discussion they refused to provide the already paid car. Fortunately I got one from Avis without any problems. A few days later I got the full refund. However, I will complain and claim compensation for the hassle.Reviewed 18 Jul. 2016

Taken Advantage OfCons:I paid in advance for the rental insurance through Kayak . When we arrived to pick-up the car, we were told that they would not honor the insurance that Kayak had sold and that I would need to call and get a refund. We had to buy Sixt's very expensive insurance which was the same rate as the car rental itself! When we were given a detailed receipt there were so many extra charges, including the afore-mentioned insurance, an extra driver fee of £100 and a drop-off fee. All in all, the cost was 3 x the expected amount. Very bad experience as it felt like we were taken advantage of.Reviewed 24 May 2017

Drop off closed earlyPros:The check in is was great .Cons:The office in Glasgow closed 20 minutes early with no signs as to where the drop off box is or what to do. I wasted 40 minutes trying to get a hold of someone to help meReviewed 25 Sep. 2017

Absolutely terriblePros:Returning the vehicle was quick and simple.Cons:Given different size vehicle than was shown. Being charged more than double the original amount to get correct size vehicle and zero customer service from both Kayak and Sixt. Vehicle was received filthy with wrappers, chewed fingernail clippings, and dirt everywhere making it impossible to verify any current damage prior to assuming responsibility for vehicle. Disgusting experience that I don't intend to repeat with either company.Reviewed 15 Jun. 2018

Terrible customer servicePros:They say they credited me after not having car I ordered available - have not verified that yet.Cons:They did not have my car “because my flight was delayed” got a much smalller car and they offered no refund until I complained on social media. Upon return tried to ding me for a problem with tire. The person on desk day I arrived was rude and tried to upsell meReviewed 25 Jul. 2018

2 hour wait to pick up the car - never againCons:The agent was slammed and completely unprepared for the number of cars picked up on a Sunday morning. The delay was worsened because they spent time upselling everything from insurance to extra drivers. ugghh!Reviewed 12 Jun. 2018

Prepare to pay additional insurancePros:Ease and speed of dropping offCons:The surprise “extra” insurance I had to purchase before being allowed to drive off the lot as the Kayak insurance was not adequateReviewed 14 Aug. 2018

Not notified by email when "damage" reported on the car.Pros:Customer service at point of rental was pleasant, efficient all-round service when I had the car.Cons:I received a letter to my UK Address (I live in Russia) a week after returning the car stating there is reported damage and asking for feedback from me. As a result SIXT asked my bank to place a block on the card I used to hire the car with, so the past 7 days my card has been blocked and I had no idea until a family member opened a posted letter regarding this. I'd have appreciated an email as well as a hardcopy, then I could have dealt with the problem swiftly.Reviewed 2 Apr. 2017
