SIXT services in Leicester 

The best way to approach your Leicester car hire is to look at the vehicles on offer in the city. If a small compact or economy car is all you'll need, we can ensure you get around efficiently. If you'd like an MPV or a minibus we'll have one ready and waiting for you, complete with any of the bookable extras you've requested, like sat nav or child seats. For holidaymakers and explorers we have 4x4s and convertibles, and even petrolheads can have their pick of our sport models. Hire periods are flexible, from a one-day rental to a weekly rental, plus options for longer stays.

What to do in Leicester

Leicester is well known for its beautiful cathedral, which is where Richard III lies buried, making it one of the most important historical sites in the UK. While you're there pop across to the Richard III Visitor Centre. If you have time you can take a drive in your hire car to nearby Beacon Hill to walk in the countryside and view the massive wood carvings in the area. 

Summer in Leicester

Summer is a great time to explore the city's waterways along the Grand Union Canal, where you can picnic or take boat rides. There is Abbey Park, which is only a mile away from the centre of the city, offering boating on its lake. Newark Houses Museum and Gardens are also more lovely when seen in summer. Otherwise you can take a short drive in your hire car out to the University of Leicester's Botanical Gardens.

Fantastic service from the guys at Sixt, especially by Edson who served me specifically. He upgraded my rental to an automatic at no extra cost which I appreciated very much. He was very transparent with me throughout the process, all the way to the end when I gave the keys back. If you are a student looking to rent a car, I recommend Sixt Leicester!

I booked a car on Saturday at Sixt Leicester Humberstone road and was greeted by the sales agent Mr Masum who’s one of the top guys in Leicester. He treated me like I was family, I reserved a manual car and he upgraded me to an auto for the same price at no extra charge, hassle free.Mr Masum Very very helpful and such a humble person. God bless him always,

A Sixt vehicle I hired in London developed a fault and couldn't be driven back to London. I rocked up unannounced at this Leicester depot and within fifteen mins I drove away in a replacement vehicle. Excellent and very friendly customer service. Recommended.

Masum from the Leicester branch is a God send, needed a car last minute and he was able to provide a hassle free service which I highly recommend & will be returning when in need of a vehicle.
