Sixt Car Hire is one of the car rental companies available at Pisa Airport. All the car rental counters are found in the Car Rental Terminal, which is accessible by shuttle bus from the airport. The shuttle buses leave from the bus stop just outside the Arrivals area. Pisa Airport is international, and considered as a major gateway to the Tuscany region of Italy. It is situated only 2 km from the city center of Pisa, and is also known as Galileo Galilei Airport, or Pisa-San Giusto Airport, due to its location in the district of San Giusto. Other car hire companies at this airport besides Sixt include Avis, Hertz, National, Thrifty, Auto Europa, Alamo, Easycar, Europcar and Budget.
Sixt, at Pisa Airport, is open daily, between the hours of 08:30 and 22:30, and customers can hire a vehicle directly from their rental counters, or in advance, from Sixt’s website. Their website address is www.sixt.com, and here customers can view all the vehicle categories available at this Sixt rental location, along with pictures of example vehicles in each car category. At Sixt, when hiring a vehicle, customers will select one of these vehicle categories, rather than a car by its specific make and model. Sixt’s website also offers plenty of information about the rental procedures and policies which need to be followed when hiring a vehicle.
Sixt has a large selection of vehicles to offer their customers, ranging from the small and practical Smart For Two, to larger vehicle ideal for groups of travelers, such as the Renault Trafic. While mentioning the Smart For Two, it is as its name suggests, just perfect for two people. It’s a great vehicle for driving around busy Italian streets, and because of its size, its so easy to squeeze into small parking spaces! It doesn’t however have much room for luggage, and a larger vehicle may be more suitable if you plan on a longer road trip. Slightly larger vehicles seating up to four people include the Fiat 500, Renault Twingo, Renault Clio, Fiat Panda, Citroen C3 and Chevrolet Aveo. These are also nice cars for city driving, and are a good choice for couples or small families. They are all manually driven vehicles, featuring air conditioning and a satellite navigation system if there is one available at the time of your rental. A GPS unit is most definitely a wonderful piece of equipment to have with you on your journey, especially when driving in unknown territory. Besides their continuous road maps and other features, they also usually come with thousands of pre-programmed points of interest, which will allow you to always be able to find the nearest gas station, hotel, pharmacy, restaurant, shopping center etc.
One of the unique aspects of Sixt Car Hire is that some of their vehicles are guaranteed to have a satellite navigation system included in their rental. These vehicles include the Mercedes-Benz A Class, which is an automatic vehicle, the Chrysler 300 C, also a vehicle with an automatic transmission, and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class T-Modell, which is an estate vehicle available from Sixt. These cars are all of a nice size, seating between four and five people, and storing up to four items of luggage. For extra luggage room, estate cars are always a good choice. Other estate cars offered by Sixt include the Citroen C3 Picasso STW and Renault Megane STW.
Vehicles which also have more room for luggage, and space for four passengers, are the Chevrolet Cruze and Renault Scenic, which are manually driven vehicles, as well at the Mercedes B-Class, Citroen C4 Picasso and Renault Laguna. The Renault Trafic is an example vehicle available from Sixt which can comfortably accommodate up to nine people, an excellent choice for groups of friends who want to travel together.
