Best car rental by far in Bern! Will definitely be coming back!
6.0 GoodFeb 17 2021
The car was greatThe staff from Hertz was rude and dumb
8.0 ExcellentJul 31 2016
Mismatch between Kayak price and Hertz reservationNice car, great location, GPS included.It took > 30 minutes to resolve a difference in rate between the Kayak promised price (which I had in an email) and the rental price that was at the Hertz desk in Bern. This should not have been a problem if Kayak's process with Hertz was clear.

4.0 OkaySep 30 2019
Online purchasePrice paid online was not full price, company charged me twice for insurance.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 25 2019
Everything went very well and I can not think of anything that would have made the rental better. Pick up was very smooth and a good experience as was the drop off. I would rent with you again.
9.2 ExcellentSep 22 2016
Made me consider Sixt againFriendly, helpful staff. No nonsense. No pressure when I told the agent I had already purchased insurance. There are weird laws about EU citizens driving Swiss cars into the EU -for which I think they may want to charge you more and give you an EU car - but fortunately that didn't apply to me with my US license. I had a horrific, straight up fraud experience renting from Sixt at Ljubiana airport in 2014 and swore I'd never use the company again. Friends in Bern insisted Sixt in Switzerland was good and I tried the company out again. I was glad to see they were right.I'd never driven a Renault before and had no opinion about the brand going in. Now, I can say I'd never buy one. The automatic transmission is poorly designed, the shut off switch that stops the engine at traffic lights functioned far from optimally, USB charging was a joke, and the navigation is very slow to load. This is all not Sixt's fault, other than that they chose to buy cars of that brand
