Re: Car hire / Sixt - Any Questions

Hi Gary,

A few questions:

If I rent a van in the UK to move my stuff to Zurich (delivering it back to the UK) do I need to specify I am taking it out of the country at the time of booking? I couldn't see somewhere to do that online. Any extra cost for multiple drivers? And does unlimited mileage still apply?

Which of your locations are most convenient for Gatwick and London City airports?

Cheers,

Nigel

Re: Car hire / Sixt - Any Questions

Sixt and specifically Gary Coughlan did a fantastic job at winning another customer who'll certainly be returning next time he needs a fancy set of wheels. I can't rate the service highly enough. Thanks Gary!

Faultless and friendly service, the only negative experience was having to hand back the keys...

Sorry about the delay coming back to your post.

It is strange because it works fine for me, perhaps other members can try and confirm their findings. The dates and times submitted do show an offer.

If you wish you can PM me your details and telephone number and I'll go through the process with you whilst your on line.

Re: Car hire / Sixt - Any Questions

Gary,
Do you offer long term rentals - like for a month. It is too long for a day by day rates and too expensive to buy/lease a new car.

Re: Car hire / Sixt - Any Questions

Hi Gary
Great post! Very pro-active and very helpful, you've actually prompted me to go direct to the Sixt site rather than fight my way through comparison sites.
I do have a question however, I need a car for a couple of weeks in Mallorca (pick up/drop off at Palma airport) and found this under the T&Cs:

"Premium Location Fee
A Premium location fee of EUR 34.22 occurs for rentals at airport (applies for off-airport and on-airport-branches) and train stations per month or part thereof."

I haven't seen this before. Is it an additional fee on top of the quoted rental price? What is it for?

Also, is there a way to narrow the search by number of doors? A few times, the search returns a car (e.g Opel Corsa) which shows a photo with 4 doors but when you go into the detail, the vehicle on offer (or "a similar car of the same category") states 2 door. This can be quite frustrating as "Economic" and "Compact" cars can be either and I definitely don't want 2 doors. Any ideas?

Thanks for your help and this really useful post !
