Anyone use Sixt Car Rental
      #1734440 - 06/03/17 02:28 PM (138.207.189.74)

We just book a VW Polo or similar through Rentalcars.com for $530 for 31 days in August. This includes liability, my Capital One CC covers collision for up to 31 days. The company they put us with is Sixt. Have not used them before, we'll see. Anyone used Sixt?

Hi. I made this it's own thread. Never heard of that company, not that that means anything.

Sixt is new in the Caribbean and the US, but established in Europe. I haven't noticed them on SXM before, but they bought out an agency on St Barth a few years ago.

I have no idea if the SXM Sixt operation is a franchise or a company-owned operation.

I've seen them for several years on the road next to the airport where all the other rental companies are. They're not new.

Month of August? That's a nice quiet time to visit the island, but also a good time to have protected yourself with travel insurance. I'll be interested in hearing about your experience with Sixt.

We have used them several times in other cities and they are good.

H O W E V E R, we booked them on SXM only once and we couldn't find their shuttle at the airport and eventually took a cab and skipped the rental got the whole trip.

I would get clear directions from them where their shuttle will be, how often and if someone in the airport is willing to call them. No one at all those desks seemed to know anything about SIXT except go out to the shuttle area for ,

I've used SIXt before (not in SXM) and thought I had a great deal until I found out they charge a fee for services normally provided by other agencies. I went through with the rental and was fortunate that I didn't have any problems. Roadside assistance was one of the items that bothered me....if I rent a car I expect that service at the very least.
