Every booking will require a security deposit but it will only be taken upon collection of the vehicle, in branch.
The Pre-Paid price option will charge your card the full cost of the rental upon booking, however the Pay-on-Arrival option will charge nothing to your account until collection of the vehicle in branch.
Sixt accepts the major credit cards by VISA, American Express, MasterCard and Diners Club. VISA debit cards can be accepted at selected UK locations only. We do not accept cash.

Typically, all online quotations from Sixt.co.uk do include VAT. The information displayed during the booking process will advise either way.
The Rental Agreement (or RA) is the rental contract document between Sixt and a client, confirming the liabilities and responsibilities of all parties for the contracted period.
Sixt offers various additional services from extra insurance packages, child seats, winter types, Sat Nav systems and more. All available extras will be listed for your convenience during the booking process and can be added on easily.
If you wish to keep the vehicle longer than the contracted period, this must be agreed with the Sixt branch in the UK so that the rental documents can be extended. Simply call the pick-up station to request an extended rental agreement.
In this case it is not a physical rental branch but a meeting point where a Sixt driver is waiting for you with your name board and your Sixt car. The advantage is obvious: there is no waiting time at any counter.
