SIXT’s location at London Gatwick Airport

For the North Terminal our desk is located in the car hire centre on the Upper Level of the International Arrivals Hall. If you’re arriving at the South Terminal, exit the terminal building and follow the signs leading to Bus Stop No. 1. The car hire centre and the SIXT office is only a few steps away. We have a generous 24/7 return policy that allow you to drop your car off after business hours. Simply return the vehicle to the original terminal where it was picked up, following signs for Car Rentals, and park in one of our designated spots. Leave the keys in the secured box outside the office and you’re all set.

Being so close to the captial, Sixt's Gatwick branch is great for business users commuting to London as well as tourists on visits to the UK. Enoy the pageantry of the daily changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, take a tour of the historic Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, and shop at Harrod’s for souvenirs. With your own hire car it’s easy to explore the wider region around Gatwick including one of the UK’s largest theme parks in Thorpe Park or a trip down to Brighton.

I enjoy renting from Sixt because they have great cars and great customer services for a great price.

Helpful and friendly staff. The facilities are clean, neat and easy to find. I rented from South Terminal, all rentals are operating there during the pandemic. Brand new fleet of cars with an ample selection.


I have always recommended Sixt wherever I travel to within UK and worldwide. It was a really nice gesture when I was upgraded to a 4-door Mini; it happens to me quite often when I rent from Sixt Gatwick.


The picking up point is just 2 minutes away from the branch. Highly recommended branch

Great car hire experience with excellent customer support. Hiring car every other week and 99/100 I am choosing Sixt. Recommend using app where you can quickly book, change the booking prior to collection add additional options or amend the booking during the contract without a need to go to the branch or telephone contact.

The staff at Gatwick could not be more helpful, particularly as this rental was in the middle of the fuel distribution issues. Staff were very helpful on what changes had been made to the standard terms because of this. The upgraded car I received did smell quite strongly of second hand smoke, which was a real shame. Other than that, the car was in very good condition.

I have since heard from sixt customer care and I'm happy with there explanation. It appears that have my money and sixt haven't received payment for my cancelled car hire, this is a very poor show by and I will be contacting them in the very near future. My thanks to sixt for giving me the information. And will give there customer feedback 5 stars . I'm leaving my review up for people to see that you are not at fault, but to be mindful of car hire


I had to cancel my car hire due to family and friends advice on the fuel crisis and the fact that the car fuel policy was like for like ,so I couldn't be sure I would be starting my journey with a full tank of fuel. I recieved an email today saying I wasn't in titled to a refund, or credit towards another date. So sixt( 114 euro that they haven't earned because of people panic buying fuel . Seems wrong to me Reservation - Ref: 693394655
