From 15-seater passenger vans to compact cars, luxury models and SUVS, Sixt Car Rental offers a wide range of different vehicles to suit your needs. Operating in over 105 countries, the company functions much in the same way as other car hire services, allowing you to enter your travel itinerary to display a list of potential options.


The website shows results starting with the lowest price first and lets you sort by vehicle type, transmission and your age to give you the best choice. You can then select by either their lowest rate or one with free cancellation, a useful inclusion for those who are unsure about a trip and want to remain flexible.


One feature I like in particular is the ‘Lucky Dip Car’ displayed at the top. This gives the user the chance to take a risk on a car and potentially get a full size saloon for a fraction of the cost. Although it can also mean getting a lower quality vehicle than you would have liked, it’s the ideal choice for those who are not too fussy about what they drive and don’t mind taking a bit of a gamble.


After selecting a car, all other car rental sites, you will be given the chance to choose some add-ons, including roadside protection, SatNav and baby seat. However, for additional driver, the cost was more expensive than any other company, priced around $16 USD. This means that if you plan on sharing the journey with someone else, Sixt may not be the best option.


Sixt has a rewards scheme based on its loyalty cards, in which there are five different options – Express, Corporate, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Each card has its own set of benefits such as quicker renting and discounts on cars, and can be gained through making a number of bookings with the company. However, in comparison with competitors’ rewards schemes, Sixt’s one was less generous.

  • Option of free cancellation
  • Lucky Dip Car gives opportunity to get a bargain on a premium vehicle
  • Expensive additional driver cost
  • Rewards scheme not as generous as other ones on the market
