My experience was good. However I was there off season and I can imagine that during summer time the waiting time can be high because they take long to deal with customers even though they had reservations.


I got an upgrade so that was nice. They didn't pressure me on taking extra insurance because I made it clear that I was already fully insured.

Only mistake from my side was the fuel deal. If you have the time, get the petrol yourself close to the airport. I accepted their refill option which probably cost me more in the end.


Returning the car was good with the employee with south African background. Very nice guy.

As far as car rentals go I loved it 😂


Was looked after fairly quickly, if you're picking up a car remember to get a ticket from the podium at the front. This is how they run their queue and if you don't get one you'll be left waiting.


Once I was seen too (10 minute wait) the gent that help me was great. The whole process from start to driving away was about 10 mins.


Second time I have rented from this Sixt location and so far so good!


Have 7 days until I return the car so will update once I'm back home.

Regular customer of SIXT and booked this car during lockdown at a great price. When we arrived to collect the car at Faro airport the girl was visibly shocked to see the price we paid. We opted for the full tank of petrol and tolls - I expected an additional charge of around 85 Euros. A bit shocked to see the final invoice was 200 Euros more than the original quote. I take full responsibility for not checking the paperwork at Faro airport but would advise extreme caution - there are lots of add-ons which considerably bump up the price.

Lots of horror stories about car rental companies in Faro airport, but I found Sixt were great - no hidden charges, no mad queues for my car (15 mins only), polite and professional staff and a brand new car. If I go to Faro again I’ll be going back to Sixt.

Easy to find. Not far away from the airport. Just 5 min to walk.

No complications with the rent. The employees are nice and helpful.

I throw one stars away because we have to wait more than a hour to get the car
