I got a confirmation a few days prior to pickup, with instructions on how to catch the shuttle once we reached MEL airport. The pickup from airport, delivery of the car, and the return was as smooth as possible. We rented a 12-seater and the car itself was very good and clean.

The petrol tank was not full to the top. The needle actually showed below full. As I did a 1,500 km journey, I filled up a number of times and was able to estimate about a 120km short fall on that partially full tank. I was not very pleased.

We were happy with the car and the staff were friendly.The only niggle we have was we had trouble with the call centre giving us the wrong opening time for the city store and having to wait quite a while to be served, however service was friendly and helpful.

Downgraded car...Good service, and a nice car in the end but...the original size of car shown on your website was not provided (shogun sport or similar). Instead was offered asx (2nd booking confirmation from you guys). I took one look and knew there wasn't enough luggage space as we had 2 large suitcases an, 2 carry on suitcases and 2 small bags. I know the size of a shogun sport. The only larger car they had (which we could get all our luggage into Was an exec (Merc e class). Although they 'did a deal' I still had to pay more than DOUBLE to get a suitable car to meet our needs for the trip (an extra $40 A DAY)!!! Just about to book a car for our trip to the states. Won't be using kayak to book with again. Europcar said this often happens with regards to class of car when booked through a third party.

After booking for a 12am pickup my reservation was changed to 12pm. When i contacted Apex they told me that i can only book aa after hours pick up directly through them. Had no choice but to cancel my original booking and rebook only to find that the price directly through Apex was $400 more than my original booking. Need to specify these things prior to booking through 3rd parties. Not happy and will not use again

Reserved a 8 seater suv but thrifty refuses to give a car that is 8 seater even after showing proof of reservation. Receptionist said kayak has different code and that my reservation is for 7 seater. I feel cheated. We were 8 ppl traveling from us and I needed exact 8 seats. Will never do business with them. I actually want my refund for inconvenience.

Outsourced to unknown hire companyKayak website highlighted on airport pick up. Fail! SixT outsource to another provider who is off-site involving a bus ride away. Toyota Corolla or Similar reserved. Fail! Next level down Suzuki Swift provided. Outsourced hire company is so far removed from Kayak that they will not budge on the booking made to them. All of these caused a lot of friction with my partner! Just what you need when you start a holiday!

we had to wait for 30 mins for the pick up from airport ; van wasnt in a great condition, though usable for the 1 week trip. I have had much better experiences with Sixt in other countries and australian states, quite disappointed with my experience in melbourne.

First car given to us didn't have toll tag so was replaced with a smaller car after 10 minute wait. Car was fine for the price,Pick up at Melbourne Airport is very unclear, no indicators on the booking where to catch the shuttle, phone number on the website apparently disconnected.
6.0 Good1 Jan 2018
Price is reasonable, counter staff is friendly.NO contact telephone number on the voucher so I spent plenty of time to find out a right number to call the shuttle service. It is not good for a foreigner who was helpless at the airport.
