Ordered a rental car through Lyft for SIXT South Loop Car Rental Center, after Enterprise called us at 8am to say they didn't have a car that day for our reservation, which was made weeks earlier. SIXT came through with a brand new Ford Bronco and we were able to keep our plans to visit Saugatuck, MI and Indiana Dunes National Park. Renting with SIXT through Lyft was easy and seamless. Location was walking distance to our hotel, so I should have rented with them in the first place. Thank you, SIXT!

@SixtRentACarChicagoAirport I’m about to pick up a car at the chicago airport. I tried calling but I couldn’t get through. Is there a way to confirm that this location accepts chase bank debit cards with a deposit as written on the conditions? Thanks !
