I was offered a quote, how long is it valid for? 


A quoted price should just be used as a guideline and is not binding until a reservation has actually been made/booked. 

 

Can I be guaranteed a price after a quote has been given? 


No, because our quotes/rates/prices vary throughout a day, depending on the availability of our fleet. 

 

How often do the rates change? 


Rates can change at any time and/or date, depending upon vehicle availability. 

 

Can the price of my rental change after my reservation booking has been confirmed? 


No, once you have confirmed your reservation booking, the price will not change unless the booking is amended. Any reservations made for destinations outside of the UK are subject to fluctuations in exchange rates, however the price in the local currency (e.g. € EUR) will not change. 

 

Do I have to pay an airport surcharge? 


Some destinations are subject to a premium location surcharge, this fee is included within the rate shown unless otherwise stated. 

 

Is VAT included in the price? 


Typically, all online quotations from sixt.co.uk do include VAT. The information displayed during the booking process will advise either way. 

 

Is there a young driver surcharge? 


In the UK, a young driver charge of £36.00 per day is applied for drivers under 25 years. There are also limitations on available vehicle classes. Prices and terms vary between countries so please review the applicable Terms of Rental for other countries and to also view available car hire classes. We also offer a student discount. 

 

When do your weekend prices start and finish? 


Our core weekend prices for cars and minibuses start from 12:00 on Friday to 09:00 on the following Monday. For commercial vehicles weekend prices start from the time that your pick-up location opens on Friday to 09:00 on the following Monday.
