SIXT car hire protection in the UK

Is protection included in my rental booking? 

When you rent a vehicle from SIXT, Third Party Liability cover for bodily injury and property damage will always be provided, in accordance with the legal requirements. SIXT also includes loss damage waiver (LDW) in all of its UK rates. 


Can I reduce OR remove my excess amount? 

SIXT offers many optional products that will provide benefits for different types of situations you might encounter. Details about the variety of protection options can be found here, and in the rental agreement terms and conditions that are provided when you rent. 


What if I am under 25 years of age, do I have to pay extra insurance? 

Drivers under the age of 25 are required to pay a Young Driver Surcharge. The exact change can be found on our rental information page. 


Are second or additional drivers covered on the insurance? 

To be protected, all additional drivers need to be added to the Rental Agreement (RA) to ensure they are not in violation of the rental agreement terms and conditions. They must qualify with the age requirements to drive the vehicle type rented and will benefit from any optional products and benefits purchased at SIXT as long as there are no violations to the rental agreement. A charge per day for every additional driver would be applicable where allowed by law. The prices for additional drivers vary depending on the length of rental, so check the booking to identify the charge for the location and dates you are requesting.
