SIXT's location at Southampton Airport 

It couldn't be easier to reach our Southampton Airport car hire branch once you've arrived at Southampton Airport. Once you've collected your luggage simple walk towards to main terminal exit. Then follow the signs that direct you to the Short Stay car park which is opposite the terminal building. You'll see our pick-up office right next to the car park – look out for our orange sign. Our friendly agents will sort you out with your vehicle, and if for some reason it's not the one you booked, you can simply return it for another if you wish. 

Explore Southampton with your car hire 

The perfect introduction to Southampton is to head down to the Western Esplanade, where you'll find some of the city's main attractions. You can marvel at the long 14th century city walls still standing, visit the Wind Whistle Tower, and stop off at the only medieval church still standing in the city. For first-hand insights into ancient Britain, drive your hire car out to the Medieval Merchant's House and see how a 13th-century family lived. You also can't miss the National Motor Museum, home of the official exhibition of original James Bond movie cars.

We recently had a great experience hiring a car from SIXT at Southampton Airport. Dilraj was awesome, can't recall when we have ever had better customer service. As there were no customers booked in following us, Dilraj even escorted us to the car. Julian who arranged things for us was also very accommodating and making a late change in the vehicle was very much appreciated due to our luggage requirements. The car was great and the whole process was seamless. We also had the flexibility of dropping the car off in London. Would thoroughly recommend the SIXT team at Southampton Airport. Regards Joe

My husband & I recently had the pleasure of renting a car from Sixt in South hampton Airport. Julian was our contact & to give 5* is simply not enough!

Our flight was delayed but when we called Julien he was so helpful & waited in the offoce until we arrived, over a half hour after he was sue to close.

He took all the stress out of what could have been disaster for us if we had not gotten the car. The car itself was superb, very spacious & very new at a very restaurant rate. All in all I would highly reccomend Julien & Sixt car hire . It is a joy to meet helpful, can-do customer service providers. He was kind, efficient & an exemplary advocate for Sixt. Obviously we will be back
