Car rental was fine. Don't use affirm to pay as sixt requires you to use the card you paid with for a deposit upon pickup and was not able to process it so I had to use my own debit card and now I'm trying to dispute the charge with affirm since I paid out of my own pocketReviewed 2 May 2024

SixT best bang for the buckPros:Cheap price and no wait. Because SixT is less well known than the others, the lines for pick up were atrocious at Hertz, Avis, etc but non-existent at SixT. Mildly slick attempt at getting us to choose un-needed insurance (aren't they all?) but otherwise super-attentive service. No prob with the car at all. Drop off was a breeze.Cons:A couple of dents in the car not documented at pick-up - we had to note these and have them write then down before we took off with the vehicle.Reviewed 6 Sep. 2017

Top tips for renting a car from Sixt at San Jose Airport

  • When flying into San Jose International Airport, travellers have multiple transport options to get from the airport to the city center. You can use public transport, get a taxi, or book a Sixt car rental at San Jose Airport. While each option has pros and cons, getting a car rental is arguably the best option, especially if you plan on visiting different places around the city. With your car rental, you won't have to deal with the set schedules that come with public transport, and you get to plan your itinerary much better since you have control over everything. Furthermore, when flying back, you can always drive your rental car to the airport and drop it off, saving you the stress of having to plan for the airport commute.
  • If you plan to book Sixt car rentals at San Jose Airport, then you should know that the airport has a dedicated Rental Car Center where all the rental agencies have set up a desk and offer their services. This Rental car Center is located adjacent to Terminal B and can be accessed from Baggage Claim via Airport Boulevard. In Terminal A, you can get to the Rental Car Center using the blue free shuttle bus. Once you have reached the Rental Car Center, look for the Sixt desk, which should be easily identifiable as it bears the company’s logos.
  • The process of returning your rental car is relatively easy. You can choose to return it to the same location where you picked it up, or in cases where that would be impossible, you can drop it off at a different location as agreed with the company. In the case of the same location return, you can just drive up to the rental car center at San Jose Airport, park your rental and hand the keys to the staff, who will then conduct an inspection to confirm that the car has been returned in good condition. If you’re returning the rental to a different location, you will first have to seek approval from the agency by simply contacting them and explaining the situation to them. Once they have approved, the staff will then advise you on where to return the rental car, where to park it, and also where to drop the keys.
  • While there aren’t any extremely difficult times to pick up your Sixt car rental at San Jose Airport, it is worth mentioning that certain days usually have longer queues compared to others. This is especially the case for weekends and holidays since there are usually a lot of people flying in and out of the airport and, therefore, a lot of people looking to pick up and return their rentals. You should consider reserving your car rental online to make the process slightly easier for yourself.
