delays to return - overchargesPros: quick car pickup - but apparently gave me the wrong carCons: when returning the car, the agent found out that when the original agent made a mistake. This caused a delay in the return, putting me dangerously close to losing my flight. Also they overcharged me for child carseats twice. Car wasnt very clean.

9.2 ExcellentAug 11 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly, the car was clean and really nice.Cons: Drop off in Denver was unclear and the staff while busy were not very helpful even when asked what needed to happen.
10.0 ExcellentJun 3 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and did their job.Cons: Where to pickup rental would have been easier had I known to go to arrivals at the airport.
5.6 OkayFeb 11 2020
Pros: Perhaps I should have read more carefully. Given the snow conditions, I rented an SUV and must have understood incorrectly as I expected all-wheel or four-wheel drive. I was offered a $150 upsell. Guy walking up next to me got a small all wheel drive which was not offered. Car was outside covered in snow and ice impossible to inspect thoroughlyCons: read description carefully
7.6 GoodMay 28 2019
Cons: Car was well used. Seat was very uncomfortable
10.0 ExcellentMar 11 2019
Pros: Staff friendly and professionalCons: Nothing.... check in very quick efficient and professional
10.0 ExcellentSep 4 2018
ConvenientPros: Easy drop off. Courteous and hassle free.
10.0 ExcellentNov 22 2017
Easy drop offPros: Easy drop off great service and good people
10.0 ExcellentSep 1 2017
Very good experiencePros: The pickup was efficient and the agent was very friendly. The car was spacious, all wheel drive, and very clean, perfect for Colorado mountain roads.Cons: The car lacked pickup/acceleration speed on the highway, but most 'economy' cars do, so not unexpected.
9.2 ExcellentAug 17 2017
Pros: A little pricey. But good experience. The aspen airport is pretty small so the same workers at the kiosk might be out cleaning the cars and you will have to call them to get service Super friendly and got a nice Subaru outback perfect for the back roads of COCons: Too expensive for a few hours the price to rent the same car only a few hours away was half the price. That's aspen for ya
5.6 OkayJan 25 2017
Desk personelPros: Pickup was greatCons: When I picked up I asked SPECIFICALLY if I could use another credit card when I dropped it off, AND that I would drop off early in the AM. When I dropped it off the desk was closed, I left a not request that charge be put on different credit card. No Reply. When I called them they said it would not be possible unless we were there in person (we had already flown out) VERY POOR SERVICE. I would have stopped during the week if I knew the situation.

Pros: Very easy, straight forward rental
6.4 GoodNov 29 2016
Hertz different in locationsPros: Car was there, Return was easyCons: Ordered a GPS on car but when I picked up the car there was none. Could not connect my bluetooth to car and all would of been, no doubt ok, had I had a person to help me from Hertz except there was no agent at the counter when the website said there should of been. Aspen, CO has unusual hours to start with.
10.0 ExcellentOct 21 2016
Great customer servicePros: The sales person was very knowledgeable and helpful
10.0 ExcellentSep 1 2016
Amazing servicePros: I loved how fast and simple the service was. No one tried to push any additional services on me, and everyone was so kind. Customer service was great! Had help with my bags. I have never had such a great experience with a rental car company. Will definitely look to Hertz first. Also extremely pleased with the deal I got. Hertz by far has the best service.Cons: No complaints.

10.0 ExcellentFeb 28 2021
Pros: Staff (Irving) was exceptionally helpful at pick-up - he ran out to warm the car up and bring it right to us! Also helpful with switching to a larger vehicle. Pickup was inside terminal at Aspen airport which was very convenient.Cons: Price seemed high but not sure compared to other vehicles of similar size.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 17 2021
Pros: The staff was extremely friendly- both picking up and dropping off couldn’t have been easier. My car was safe, comfortable and clean!Cons: From Denver to Aspen I paid around $200 for a luxury car. From Aspen to Denver, however, I paid $1000 for a less expensive car. While the overall experience was flawless, the price for my second trip was way too high.
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2021
Pros: NothingCons: I cancelled the reservation months before the trip and Sixt never honored. Was charged and trying to fight with them is exhausting
2.8 MediocreOct 11 2020
Pros: Drop off was easyCons: This was my second and last time renting from Sixt, they always find a way to add hundreds of dollars on to the price at the last minute
4.4 OkayJun 16 2020
Pros: Had to wait 30 Minutes to pick up rental than didn't have car I rented so they had to charge me an extra 10 dollars a day for the rental I got.Cons: Should have gave me an upgrade without charging me extra and been more attentive when a customer comes to get car. They was quick to call me when they didn't look in key drop box for keys right at noon when car was supposed to be returned even after I returned it an our before was supposed to be there. I will not be renting through SIXT of aspen ever again.
10.0 ExcellentJan 8 2020
Pros: Staff was extremely helpful
10.0 ExcellentDec 20 2019

Pros: they don't have the carCons: Better??? they cancel my reservation
5.2 OkayAug 26 2019
Pros: The car was what we expected, excellent navigation system and good gas mileage.Cons: The Alamo Rep called me about a hour before scheduled time, asking me when to be picking it up. I arrived 10 min. prior, And no rep was present, proceeded to call assistance number and still took about half an hour to get the car once rep showed up. Car smelled awful, hadn’t been cleaned proir.
2.4 MediocreAug 25 2019
Pros: Easy drop off and pick up.Cons: The car upon pick up was dirty. Plus, it is underpowered and underserving for the area. The attendant tried to tell us all cars have trouble in CO, but we have been to CO many times and this was our first issue. Plus, we rode in friends cars without issue. The attendant nearly hit us when we arrived
2.0 MediocreApr 8 2017

2.0 MediocreFeb 23 2017
Did not honor my reservationPros: PriceCons: They didn't have any cars and did not honor my reservation. Told me to go ask another rental company if they had cars. Alamo told me they were 115% booked. I blame Alamo not kayak.
9.6 ExcellentNov 21 2016
Cons: I only did a drop off in Aspen, so I can't give you valid information about too much besides the drop off experience. It was fine, the attendant was friendly and fast.
