Roadside Protection from Sixt

Sixt Car Hire Roadside Protection

Left your keys in the car or run out of petrol? We can help!

For a small daily price, our Roadside Protection, an extended protection policy, covers minor accidents and incidents, protecting you from service and repair costs following self-induced events. These include:

  • Leaving the key in the vehicle
  • Running out of petrol
  • Dead battery
  • Losing the key
  • Getting stuck

Anytime, anywhere, Sixt Car Hire is here to help

In order to rent a car with roadside protection included, simply check the specific box in the booking process and the daily price will be shown and then added to your total amount.

Should you require these services during your rental period, they be ordered by a direct claim with Sixt 24-hour Roadside Assistance. The phone number to call will be provided when you pick up your vehicle. Our roadside assistance staff will meet you, and then determine the type and extent of service required to ensure you stay mobile. If any damage to the hire car occurs which is not covered by Sixt within the scope of the Roadside Protection, the renter is liable for such damage.

The policy is valid across every car category too (apart from vans and trucks), so no matter whether you are driving a city compact or a luxury sports model, you don't need to worry.
