So as long as you have your insurance information, you can decline their insurance?

Just wanted to update with our Sixt experience! The shuttle arrived fairly quickly to the airport, and it was a really short ride there. It took about 30 minutes total to get our car once we got there. The holdup was that there were two couples that had issues with their reservations, so two of the agents were tied up with them. Once I got to a free agent, I gave them my car insurance info, driver's license, and they assigned my car. Very quick! The car was very nice (Toyota Camry) and clean. When we returned the car, we didn't have directions back from them, but put the return address info into my phone, and the directions were pretty clear. Took about 5 minutes total to return the car, and the shuttle bus waited for us. Dropped us off in the right place and we were set to go! Pretty seamless transaction, and as long as the prices stay right, we'll probably rent from them again. They would need to have competitive prices to lure people away from the rental agencies with presence at the airport, but all in all, pretty good!

When you show proof of insurance, can you just bring an insurance card from your own vehicle, or do you have to have the actual policy pages that come with the insurance cards?Thanks for the info!

Does anyone know if SIXT will rent child car seats? I don't see the option on their website, so just curious if anyone saw them at the rental location. Thanks!

I rented from Sixt 2 weeks ago, without any issues. Car was new and clean. I did not have to show any proof of insurance, but was asked if I would like their insurance which I declined, not pressured at all.
I usually rent from Alamo, and enjoy the quick check in using the kiosks, and on site cars, so it did take longer to get the car and be on my way. But saving several hundred dollars made it worth while.
I would definitely use them again.

The cards have generally been enough for me. Sometimes the rental company will call your insurer to verify that their car is covered.

I just took my State Farm insurance card (that I normally keep in my car at home) and it was sufficient.

SIXT Rental for Elderly

Would you recommend SIXT for a 70-year old (young-feeling) woman that has arthritis, fused ankle, and not-so-good at lifting heavy things? I will be going on vacation alone Dec 2012 to Orlando (do this quite often). There will be nobody to help me with my 21"carry-on, 25" suitcase, and walker. Normally, I don't have anyone to help but the car rental garage is right across the street. I will be renting a mid-size SUV. I normally rent with National and take a SUV off their lot. So I just get my luggage from the carousel, put it on top of my walker and walk out to the garage. I pick out a car, load the luggage, and away I go.
So do you see any problems with renting from SIXT?

Any other reviews on Sixt?

It seems the bad reviews come from newbies to Dis.

I have a resi with Sixt and Alamo but my Sixt is 1/2 the price of Alamo with the Costco codes. I have no problem taking/showing my insurance info.

Keep the review coming.

Angry Sixt, Worst Experience Ever

It is extremely uncomfortable for me to write down this lines, as I cannot explain how furious I am at this point.
I rented a car from Sixt for the fifth time but now in Mexico City, as always, I prepaid online and charged it to my credit card, and as always, I purchased all protections even when you include a basic insurance, for the first four times I rented, everything was great, great service and enjoyed a lot, but this time, let me tell you that I was treated like dirt, after booking and paying, I called the Mexico offices to find out where is Sixt located at the airport and some other doubts, the lady who answered told me that even with all the insurances bought, tires, mirrors and windows were not covered (what kind of false confirmations you are sending out where you missed to mention that), but at the end I drive carefully and had no further issues with that, she explained to me that I had to go to your counter, then accompany someone to see the car and then accompany somebody else to the counter and then they will hand over the car (at night, sorry but I donīt trust you to drive me around in that city). I booked a GPS, as Mexico City is one of the most dangerous cities in the world and wouldnīt want to get lost and finally when I arrived, located the counter and the person told me that you ran out of GPS (terrible for someone who prepaid) but it seemed not to bother so much the clerk so I asked the clerk to cancel the reservation and refund me my money, he just told me ok, but I needed a proof that you were going to do that, but he didnīt know how to do that so asked me my copy of the reservation and wrote whatever needed to make that. At this point I havenīt received my reimbursment.

Any one have current experience with Sixt?

Wow, their rates for December 2013 are great!

I'm concerned about bad experiences though.

Righhhtttt.... because complaining about Mexico with your first post ever on the Disboards makes soooo much sense.

Would also appreciate some additional recent (legitimate) reviews.

Looking in December and they are SO much less than the big chains, it seems too good to be true. I'm already not liking this bit about "proving" you have insurance.

I have joined the Sixt frequent renter program, and have a prepaid rental in December 2013. I have no problem showing my insurance information. I always bring my insurance card anyways. (Wouldn't you want to have it if you were in an accident?)

I will report back here when we return.
