SIXT reservation process

How do I book a car or get a quotation? 

You can get a quotation and make a reservation quickly and easily online at Or you can call SIXT Reservations on +44 (0) 207 0188 246.


What does the 4-letter code (e.g. CDMR) next to the vehicle I choose mean? 

The 4-letter code you see next to the vehicle you choose is known as an ACRISS code and is used as an industry standard in classifying rental vehicles by their size/specification. For further information please visit the ACRISS website.


Is a deposit required when I book? 

Every booking will require a security deposit but it will only be taken upon collection of the vehicle, in branch.


Can someone else other than myself drive the vehicle? 

Yes, they can but you must inform SIXT in advance and pay any relevant fees for additional drivers. The second driver must also provide their full driving licence for inspection before becoming a named driver on the rental.


What are the Terms and Conditions for hiring a vehicle? 

To view our full Terms and Conditions, please visit our T&Cs page, or for general rental information please visit our Rental Information page. 


What is a Rental Agreement? 

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. 


Will my card be charged at the time of booking? 

The prepaid 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. 


What additional extras are on offer? 

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. 


What is a "Meet & Greet" branch? 

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. 


Do you lease vehicles? 

SIXT operates a Lease Plan facility for our Business Account holders. If you would like to explore Account options with SIXT please visit our Corporate Customer page for more information.
