Très bonne expérience avec Sixt à Barcelone. Voiture en état impeccable er rapport qualité - prix optimal.

La station à l’aéroport est pratique et le personnel efficace. Retour du véhicule à la station de Barceloneta, également impeccable.

Un seul point agaçant : lourde insistance pour souscrire des assurances dont le prix est déraisonable :)

Merci à Carmen pour le surclassement ! 👌🏼🇫🇷

Nous réutiliserons les services de Sixt pour notre prochaine location 👋🏼

Rented the car from the website Peugeot 308 Aut, Skoda Scala Aut, Skoda Octavia Aut.

Was problem with my flight and instead of 9AM I come in only at 4PM. For some reason I was told that my car is gone but got even better car Merc instead of Peugeot/Skoda. Nice surprise!!!

Rick at service desk was very nice and friendly. All procedure with documents and paperwork work fast enough. The lad who giving me keys and show the car was also very simple and friendly.

Staff to customer relation I would give 100% mark.

When I go again in Barcelona will rent car from Sixt and hopefully will deal with Rick again!

Fully satisfactory with the service, car and staff.

Rick at the front desk was very friendly and professional. Everything was arranged quickly, after 15-20 minutes we were already in the car. The return of the car was just as quick, taking literally five minutes.

We chose the brand of the car ourselves, so claims to the Skoda Scalia are not appropriate here :))
