So good! Highly recommend! A wonderful, easy, professional experience after a disaster of an experience with Budget a few months ago! The switch to Sixt was so worth it - and we’ll be loyal long term customers with this level of service. Pedro and Chloe in the Bristol office were top class; getting the car took mere minutes; the car was awesome; and the drop off process at Kings Cross St Pancras was a breeze. Thank you Sixt! We’ll be back again soon.

Friendly staff, car in good shape. Very simple return procedure. Recommended. Once you know that the office is in Sofitel Hotel, they are easy to find.


It was an unusually busy day when I picked up the car, and had to queue for close to an hour. Once received, the car was nice (and an upgrade). Service on both collection and drop-off was very good.

Good service and friendly service, best selection of cars, competitive price

Peaktime holiday rental w. 3 minute wait.

Price as predicted (I secured the flexi- refuel - petrol crisis charge), but

a) I took out an upgraded car (Volvo s60) with a list of scratches.

b) I took out an insurance for mirrors, tires and glass.

c) I didn't check the car thoroughly.

d) At return there previously unlisted scratches - namely on the tires.

e) The deposit on the the credit card was released on the first working day after return.

The Volvo S60 has a GPS, which works impeccably with live-updates. It is just a pity that London was full up with cars on the day I took the family from a holiday resort (w/o kerbs) to drop off at a hotel "inside the congestion zone" of London.

The return (a Friday at 1 pm) was fine with 1 car ahead of me, this was the only time I had to wait in line.

It should be possible to find premium cars less than 100 pounds per day, but I happy to pay a bit more for peace of mind, whether refuelling trouble or scratches appearing to derail the very smooth rental.

The Branch at the Sofitel is super convenient and the on call shuttle service is working super. The staff managing pick up and return were friendly and professional. The reason why I only gave 4 stars is general issue I experienced recently with Sixt. Even as a Platinum member you did not get any free upgrades (even if they are available) they make you charge for the upgrades.
