What are ACRISS codes?
ACRISS codes (created by the Association of Car Rental Industry Systems Standards) are used to categorise rental vehicles, depending on certain characteristics they have. It helps to cluster a set of similar cars, so that in the event a specific model is not available, we are able to offer you a similar vehicle from the same category. Here at Sixt we have a comprehensive set of categories, including compact / saloons, 4x4s / SUVs, people carriers, luxury cars and vans.
