One-Way Rules & Restrictions

Unfortunately, due to insurance regulations and costs for returning vehicles, sometimes there are fees or restrictions with one-way car hire. However, at Sixt, we are always upfront with these charges and there are no hidden fees! The one-way fee within the same country or cross borders always depends. Simply enter your desired pick-up and drop-off locations in the booking engine at the top of the page and you will be notified if the one-way car hire is not possible. The one-way rental fee (if any) will be added to the total amount payable at the end of the process. For unannounced one-way rentals, we reserve the right to charge an additional fee, so be sure to plan your trip accordingly to avoid any extra costs.
