Summer 2022 in Bilbao

Pack up your car hire in Bilbao and enjoy the beauties of the Basque coast: only an hour drive away from the city lies San Sebastián, a city known for its idyllic landscape and white sandy bay. Drive at your own pace and discover the hidden beaches along the way, hidden in smaller towns such as Zarautz and Ondarroa. Or drive to Bilbao’s coastline, around a half-hour by car, and cross the famous Vizcaya suspension bridge.

Really good service as always. But when I'm on a business trip, then I want the car as ordered. And when I have to tell the clerk three times that I do not want any payable upgrade, then that's two times too many.

Very friendly and efficient staff.

Stuart C.

Great prices and good customer service! The woman at the counter was able to speak to me in english, which was a little bit more expeditious than if I had to speak Spanish.

Rented a car multiple times, did not have any issues so far

Had a great experience with SIXT, no hidden charges, no surprises, which are basically my biggest worries when dealing with a rental car company. The lady at the counter was super nice, and explained everything and answered all may questions. I was given a almost new Peugeot, only 5k km with a manual transmission. They include they liability in the price per law and a collision insurance with a 1,000 euro deductible. The location is excellent, in Abando train station, very close to the city center which saved me from a trip to the airport

This place is not cheap but their cars are sweet and Estefania, who works there, is the absolute best!! She really makes you feel cared for and taken care of. She's literally the nicest person that I've ever dealt with at a car rental company; and I've dealt with tons!
