SIXT's location at Florence Airport

At FLR, the SIXT car hire branch is in the Car Hire Company building that is a 3-minute shuttle ride from the Terminal. Outside the terminal look for the bus stop for the shuttle for car hire companies. This bus will take you to the branch where you can collect your Florence Airport car hire. Cars cannot be returned to the airport, rather follow the signs to the Car Hire area and SIXT branch. A shuttle will take you to the airport and it is important to return your vehicle at least 30 minutes before you want to be at the terminal building. 

Explore Florence with your car hire

Hiring a car at Florence Airport will allow you to get into the city in around 30 minutes where you can explore sights and landmarks such as the historical Duomo Cathedral, the Uffizi Gallery and the historical Ponte Vecchio.

Positive experience with Sixt ! Some negative comments made us be extra careful (checking the prices, taking videos before starting the location, checking additional options…) but all in all the rental and the service went very well ! Would use this agency again if needed.

Ethan L.

Incredible rental experience. Check in was quick, kind and helpful. Car was exactly as ordered and in good shape. For reference, a Fiat 500L will fit 3 hard sided 26” suitcases standing up (with rear seats all the way back) or on their sides (with rear seats all the way up. We fit 3 medium Away bags and carry-ons in the boot.


Also have to give a shout out to the returns agent! He’s the best! In and out in 10 minutes.

Daniel L.

Super service oriented personnel that proactively helped us out of a bad situation due to rescheduled flights to still be able to get our rental car!

Denise was super helpful getting us an upgrade and guiding us through the process

Dan F.

Florence Sixt rental was brilliant. Car was in good shape, very fuel economical and the gentleman inspecting my car after 4 days in the Tuscan countryside was honest and fair.

Theo C.

Pleasant and skilled employees at both the rental office and the callcentre, no waiting line, a clean car (bigger than what we ordered as a free upgrade) and a fast shuttle service from and to the airport. I will definitely come back here for my next car rental. I've used a lot of different rental companies, where there's always something wrong or where you don't feel appreciated as a customer. This experience was a very nice surprise and comes highly recommended.
