Sixt, at Venice Airport (also well known as Marco Polo Airport) is open from Monday to Friday between the hours of 08:00 an 23:30, and on Saturdays and Sundays at the same times as well. They are even available on bank holidays. At this location, it is possible to return your vehicle out of office hours. If this will be necessary for your rental, Sixt can provide more details about this service. The vehicles offered by Sixt are arranged in different car categories, and one of these categories are selected when renting a vehicle, rather than a car by its specific make and model. Example vehicles in each category can be seen on Sixt’s website, which is at www.sixt.com, as well as other information about their rental procedures and policies.
A nice small car offered by Sixt is the Smart For Two. As this car’s name suggests, it is ideal for two people, perhaps a young couple who are sightseeing in Venice. It’s a great little car for nipping around busy streets and traffic, and fitting into tight parking spaces too! It does not however have much room for luggage, therefore longer distance traveling will require a larger vehicle. The Smart For Two comes with a satellite navigation system if there is one available at the time of rental. Vehicles which are ideal for four people include the Fiat 500, Renault Twingo, Fiat Panda, Renault Clio, Citroen C3 and Chevrolet Aveo. These are also smaller vehicles, but a still a bit larger than the Smart For Two. They can store a few items of luggage, and also include a navigation system in their rental, depending on availability. They are cars with a manual transmission.
Superb vehicles for the average family or business traveler that are more spacious than the vehicles mentioned above include the Chevrolet Cruze and Renault Scenic. These cars have space for two large luggage items and up to three smaller items, and are suitable for four passengers as well. If you are looking for a good car that will hold more luggage, then one of the estate vehicles from Sixt may be just right. These types of vehicles include the Citroen C3 Picasso STW and Renault Megane STW.
Sixt, at Venice Airport, offers some of their vehicles with a guaranteed navigation system included in the rental. A GPS unit is certainly a wonderful piece of equipment to have with you on your journey.

Automatic vehicles which include a navigation system are the Chrysler 300 C and Mercedes-Benz A-Class. An estate car featuring GPS is the Mercedes-Benz C-Class T-Modell.
