Reasonable price for van hire, but website doesn't explain any possible additional charges, totally voluntary but felt obliged to accept. Helpful staff in moment of need.

Superb. I cannot fault the service at Sixt Gateshead. Needed a car urgently for a family staycation. After booking less than 12 hours before pick up due to a family car breaking down, the service was superb.


Booked a Peugeot 3008 but the one they had was allocated already due to the short time frame I had booked it in. So they upgraded me to an automatic Audi Q2 which was a tad smaller inside but still done the job perfectly and for no extra cost which was amazing.


The car was clean, tidy, and brand new. The service from the staff on site was superb. All of them. Could not have been any better! The location is easy to get to off the A1 as well.


The prices are brilliant compared to other rental companies as well. In fact no others came close to their price for the car requested.


I was also able to drop it off at Newcastle Airport closer to home which was just as straightforward.


They didn't let us down. Highly recommended and will absolutely use them again. Five stars!


Please bare in mind Newcastle Airport are operating on reduced hours currently though so if you want a collection at the very last minute, use Gateshead instead.
