Car was not available although I got a booking CONFIRMATION from Sixt/Kayak. When at the counter, the employee told me it is not a confirmation but merely and "agreement" that the customer can go to the counter. Car proposed was over 2x inital cost. I have NEVER ever had to pay extra when upgraded because the original class was not available and I travel a lot. Insurance was insane at 45 Euro/day. I ended booking with Avis, they had a car and honoured their quote. Not the first time I am having issue with Sixt and will try to stay away from them.

The price for different drop off location was way too steep. I wanted to return the car to Amstedam Rai instead of Schiphol, they asked for extra 20€. Other than that all is good.
10.0 ExcellentJul 29 2022
Very clear and open communication Excellent service at the airport Fair value for money
2.0 MediocreJul 25 2022
Good: The pickup and return process were fast. Car was pretty new and clean. Bad: i ordered BMW, and they gave me Huynday. Also, there were very small letters in my reservation that it includes only 3rd party insurance, but I, my family and the car are not covered. So I had to add 300 Euro for basic insurance
2.0 MediocreJul 23 2022
It could have been much better if someone had remembered to give me a card to charge the car. I was left totally stranded in the province Groningen, not able to use the charging stations. My two credit cards (MC and Visa) were not recognized here in NL. I had to depend on total strangers to charge the car. Friends had to step up to to connect me to their bank account for a card. The lady at the Appingedam Hyundai Garage helped to apply for a card. Something to be learned Sixt! On a lighter note, I loved the car.
8.0 ExcellentJul 18 2022
I enjoyed driving an EV. I did not believe explaining the charging system was sufficient. The plugsurfing site, app, general accessibility and price was neither clear nor transparent. That’s not SIXT’s fault but they can do a better job explaining. Will rent an EV again though.

picking up the car was great, but when we arrived to drop off the car no one was around until 8am and we didn't see a key box anywhere. We almost missed our flight because I had to run back at 8am to drop off the keys and the lady working would get me a receipt for our return.

For a compact car, the VW T-Cross we got had surprisingly many features, hill holder, lane assist, wireless phone charging, great navigation and parking aid. Stuff was nice. However, keep in mind that presenting a credit card is a must, debit cards are not accepted.
6.4 GoodJul 11 2019
The car was good. It ran great. No issues with it. Got me to point A to point BI had purchased the accident insurance from you Kayak. But when I arrived from the Pick up desk and told them that I had insurance already they told me if I didn’t not purchase insurance through them they were going to have to place a €1000 deposit hold on my credit card. All the money I had left.

Wrong Car, Wrong Insurance, Big HeadacheWhen I arrived, the car I booked wasn't available. The car they replaced it with was too small for our group, so we were stuck cramped in a tight space and having to shuttle back and forth for our whole trip. I asked for full insurance coverage and only received basic coverage. Now they say there is a small scratch on the bumper and have charged 850 euros to my credit card for the damage. This has been an absolute nightmare.

The pick up agent is slow and unfair. She charged us for 2nd driver without our consent. Also, it took her over one hour to complete the process yet our pick up time started as soon as we talked.The pick up time should be from the time we got the key, not from the time we were at the signing desk.

The automobile was great -- Volvo xc60, almost new.The rental pickup and return was terrible. I tried to change the location for the pickup and return, and spent hours on the phone trying to contact the locations themselves, without success. I first called from the U.S. to try to pick up the car in the city of Amsterdam instead of Schipol airport -- I was told this would cost me an additional $900! Attempts to reach the rental locations in Amsterdam to confirm this were impossible - on hold for more than an hour. When I went to Schipol airport to pick up the car, they told me that I could have picked up the car in the city center at no extra charge! Similar situation on the dropoff -- I was unable to reach any location to see if I could drop the car closer to my hotel in Paris. Finally, I left a pair of sunglasses in the car. I spent three days trying to call the bureau to see if they were found, and also emailed the customer service departments in Paris and Amsterdam. No response
4.8 OkayMay 2 2017
We used the car for less than 24 hours but Avis charged us for 2 days. Fuel on the car when we rented it was supposed to be full. It was a little over 3/4 full

It would be better if more agents were available at the rental desk, but I understand the problem - if there are enough agents to handle the occasional 'surge,' what do they do the rest of the time? Overall, things went very well.

You should not charge customers for damage that was not done by them. I was charged 360 Euro for a rim that was already damaged and 18 Euro for gas tank that was 9/10 full. An absolute rip off!!!! Never renting a car from this company again and I will not be recommending this company to anyone either. I want to stay in business you need to be honest, not issue ghost charges to customers. That is not the way to recover your loses for bad a business season last year.

Exceptional customer serviceThe pick up and drop off processes were super fast and friendly. I am not used to driving European cars and they answered a few questions that I felt were...lets say "basic", without making me feel like an idiot. The man at the vehicle return was very nice as well and informed me where the nearest gas station was so that I could fill up and return quickly before my reservation expired and I would have to pay for the gas refill.

Nightmare rental and ruined our Christmas.We picked up the rental and immediately noticed the poor condition of vehicle. I told attendant and they said there was nothing that could be done. When arriving to our hotel and the city areas we noticed it wasn't going into gear properly. The valet attendant at the hotel also mentioned to us that something was wrong. We notified the company immediately and after 4 hours of waiting for a mechanic to show we decided to go get our kids something to eat. When we got back the mechanic had come and took the car with our personal belongings. Car seat, stroller and baby carrier and bag well over $1,000 worth of things. I had to pay over $100 in cab fees and call the police to get my things back from the company. This was all on Christmas Day. No one tried to fix or make this up to us. They did not care at all. I ended up having to spend $700 more in a rental because that's all that was available with another company at short notice on Christmas. I don't understand how people can be so cold hearted and inconsiderate.

I didn’t like the fact that kayak gives the WRONG RETURN ADDRESS ON EMAIL. When I pressed GET DIRECTIONS I expect it to be the correct address. VERY STREESFUL driving around Schiphol trying to find the correct address after searching for 30 minutes and running overtime almost. I took it up with green motion and they said they advised their move to you 12 months ago so is not their fault. PLEASE FIX KAYAK!! Unimpressed guys.

Top tips for renting a car at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

  • Imagine yourself cruising down the road to Winkelcentrum Vier Meren (Viermeren Shopping Center) with a gentle wind blowing in your hair. It's a breath-taking experience that you can barely enjoy when you board a taxi or a Connexxion Shuttle, or a GVB tram and metro. Why not get a car rental at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport? The freedom, convenience, and the opportunity to choose a car that matches your needs and taste that Amsterdam Schiphol Airport rental companies offer are the primary reasons you might want to rent one.
  • When your stay in Amsterdam is over, and you need to catch your departure flight, returning the car to your Amsterdam Schiphol Airport car rental has never been easy. That's because you return the vehicle to the exact location you picked it at the flight hub. Use the A4 freeway to Schiphol airport, and when you enter the airport, you'll easily see the "Car Rental Return" signs that lead to the car rental parking lot. Remember to refill the tank on your way, as it will save you extra fuel costs.
  • It's critical to have a knack for cutting your rental costs, and here's one trick: A car rental at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport will always sell you their car insurance, which should cover any damages if you're involved in an accident. On-airport rental operators usually include a "premium service charge", which is an extra fee that applies to car rentals with locations at flight hubs. If you add tax fees and other costs, the quoted amount shoots up slightly. However, by purchasing your rental agent's insurance, you reduce your liability to zero.
  • You'll have a good time driving in Amsterdam, but know that rush hour may make your driving challenging due to increased traffic. That's especially the case on A2 road near Schiphol Airport. If you're returning your rental vehicle to catch a flight, it would be best to plan the trip earlier when the traffic on A2 is moving fast. Additionally, drivers must always yield the right of way to traffic advancing from the right. Adhering to that will keep you out of trouble, most so when you're at an intersection or roundabout.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport for $39 or less
