Sixt Car Hire is one of the major car hire companies at Punta Raisi Airport. All the car hire counters, including Sixt, can be found on the first floor of the single terminal building, in the Arrivals hall. Although passengers may book a rental car when they arrive at the airport, many people prefer to make their ideal car selection beforehand, from the company’s website. Nowadays it is a quick and simple process to book a vehicle over the internet. The website of Sixt can be found at www.sixt.com.
Sixt offers many different types of vehicles, from Fiats to Chryslers to Renaults. Some of the vehicles which are popular choices include the Fiat 500, Renault Clio, Chevrolet Aveo, Chrysler 300, Citroen C3 Picasso and the Renault Laguna. Most of these vehicles have a manual transmission, air conditioning, and even a navigation system, depending on availability. Be aware that the age restriction for driving most of these cars is 21 years of age. If you are a young driver (between 21 and 24) there may be surcharges added to your rental. It is best to find out from Sixt if there are any extra charges, or if there are any other possibilities.
For those who enjoy the services of Sixt there is the Sixt Express Card. This card allows you to avoid queues and rental formalities, and complete your rental procedure quickly and easily. There is also the Sixt Ladies Card and the Sixt Gold Card, which both offer exclusive discounts for various rentals. The Sixt Gold Card is designed especially for those customers who rent for more than five times a year.
Renting a car from Sixt has been made as simple as possible by numerous innovative check-in solutions. Sixt has Quick Check-In Terminals, where customers with a Sixt Express Card can access direct hire at the terminals. Customers must have already made a reservation with Sixt, but when collecting the vehicle, the check-in is completed in three easy steps. Firstly, insert your Sixt Express Card, or credit card, into the terminal. Your reservation will now be displayed, and you have the options of booking anything else extra that you may require, such as car seats. You will now make your selection from the three different vehicles available, confirm your booking, and print your rental agreement. The vehicle keys will then be in the safe.
Sixt Mobile Check-In allows for easy reservations over the telephone. You can also activate your reservation in advance over the telephone. Keep your Sixt customer number or credit card number handy to give to the operator. Cars can be booked up to four hours in advance. When collecting the vehicle, you can also use the Quick Check-In Terminal.
Payment for your rented vehicle from Sixt can be made by any internationally recognized credit card, such as American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard or Visa. Payments cannot be made in cash and by prepaid cards or debit cards (Visa Electron, Maestro-cards), or by check. A Sixt CarExpress Servicecard is accepted when used in combination with a valid credit card. The credit card to which the payment will be submitted should be in the name of the primary renter of the vehicle. The amount charged to this card will include the rental price as well as any extra fees incurred. No refunds are available should the vehicle be returned early.
Insurance is always necessary when renting a car. The types of insurance that are mainly considered are Third Party Insurance (TI), Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), Theft Protection (TP) and Personal Accident Insurance (PAI). Some types of insurance are compulsory when renting a vehicle.
