Pros:Staff were great. They were very friendly, responded with clarity to my questions. Very efficient and quick. It was a great experience and happy with my decision to try Sixt for the first time instead of going back to HertzCons:Overall I am happy with my decision. The only thing would be perhaos a different location with more space to pick up or drop the car. Perhaps Sixt should consider having its office inside the big parking garaza at Syngrou-Fix metro station. It would be easier to reach the car station, more safeReviewed 28 Jan 2019

Worst rental agency, avoid at all costsPros:NothingCons:This is my experience in trying to rent a car from sixt in Greece. Lady at the counter was too busy flirting on the phone to even look up at us. When trying to pick up the car, she wanted my Canadian driver's license. I had presented her an international driver's permit which is valid for a year and is proof that I have a driver's license in Canada. You can't even apply for one otherwise, idiots. When I wanted the reservation refunded, she wouldn't give me a full refund citing their cancellation policy. She then handed the phone to me and I had a rude customer service dog trying to read out their terms and conditions to which I said I'm not interested in a lecture from you. She turned into a rude, bratty teenager and gave me attitude, then wouldn't let me speak to a manager. We had walked about 3km with all our luggage from our Airbnb in Monasteriki to the Athens Hilton to pick up the car, thinking the reservation would've been upheld. We were supposed to drive from Athens to Thessaloniki, but because of sixt we were stranded and our entire day was ruined. We finally had to get a train which was an hour late and we arrived in Thessaloniki after midnight, about 6 hours after our expected arrival. Not only that, but my girlfriend caught a cold while stuck waiting in the Athens Hilton lobby. We had to spend 90€ on train tickets and another 10€ on Uber. I expect a full refund as well as compensation for our additional expenses or I will make sure no one wastes another penny on sixt in the future. Oh and for the record, Enterprise and Hertz had no issues with my driver's permit and were shocked when I told them what sixt had done. We rented a car from Hertz in Thessaloniki for 8 days and our experience was wonderful.Reviewed 28 Oct 2017

Was not allowed to rent the car despite prepay/all guidance followedCons:I didn't get to rent a car. It ruined my vacation and put a huge strain on the business portion of my trip. I had a prepaid reservation for my trip. This was accompanied by the following text: "Important Information: The driver must present a valid driver's license at the counter and a credit card in his/her name. The card used for booking must also be presented at pickup for confirmation of the reservation. Additional drivers may be added at the counter for a fee. Additional charges may apply if you pick-up or drop-off the car at a different date, time, or location than your reservation" When I got to the counter I presented all of these items and was told that you would not rent me a car because I didn't have an additional form that translated my valid driver's license into other languages. I have rented cars around the world and never encountered this requirement. I have even rented in Greece and never had this problem. The counter agent said that Sixt just changed their policies about a month ago and maybe someone else would rent me a car. Sure enough, Avis was perfectly willing to rent me a car, but for 600 euros, nearly 5x the price I had paid for my reservation!Reviewed 13 Jun 2018

Pros:Car was ok, however missed the cruise control on highways.Cons:The agent didn't accept my UAE driving license and was reluctant to open his mind for any arguments ,including links from MoFA confirming the license is acceptable.Reviewed 13 Jun 2018

Cons:Two big surprises. First, I have been traveling to Europe for years and renting cars. This is the first time I was told I must have an international drivers license. Something I could have easily addressed if the website had ANY indication it was required. Second, Sixt tells you on the website that insurance is covered, but when you arrive, you learn that comprehensive insurance costs more than the car rental. I won't be back.Reviewed 10 Oct 2019
