1.9 HorribleJul 28 2021
Unfortunately Enterprise was unable to help me get a car. They have a new policy of picking up and dropping off at the same location. My flight was canceled and I needed a car to drive home. The lady behind the desk was unhelpful, the office was unfriendly, no where to sit as another employee was taking the one seat and ignoring me. I was visibly distressed but no one seemed to care.

The staff were extremely helpful. I ended up changing my reservation to an earlier time with no cost, then was unable to make it in that early due to unexpected circumstances. They ended up adjusting it so I could bring it back later on my return date, which they didn’t have to do. Staff is very friendly and laid back. Will definitely come back to this location.Nothing

1. car was there 2. return was fast and courteous1. Car was smaller than stated in initial reservation 2. Dollar appears to double charge airport concession fee and transport (airtrain/building) "transaction" fee even for customers who don't use the airtrain and even though the building is part of the concession. 3. Car was not thoroughly serviced: tire pressure was uneven.

Sixt has overcharged me for a day and I cannot get ahold of customer service to dispute this. Their customer service line is not accepting calls at the moment so my attempt to communicate has been relegated to email, and they have not yet responded almost a week later.

2.0 MediocreJul 3 2021
The staff was kind for the most partI waited 5 hours on the side of a freeway because I got a flat. I wasn’t helped until 2am. The tow driver told me it’s because they try to get the cheapest company. When I called after waiting 3 hours the guy on the phone yelled at me for calling. I was kind and had not asked for an eta before that. Also, when I initially got the flat the car said low tire pressure and they told me I needed to drive it an hour and a half to another SIXT location. It shredded the tires and was not at all safe. Avoid my mistake! They also charge $10 per gallon if you don’t leave the tank filled. After I was up all night bc no hotels were available I was told I’d be given an upgrade. I wasn’t.

Very helpful staff. Had a minor issue with the car and they quickly traded it in for a different one.A little tricky to find the office. There’s a sign, but it’s easy to miss.
2.4 MediocreAug 15 2020
Everything. The car wasn't available on Friday, the agency closed earlier. Leaving me no choices than cancelling my WE plans. Finally got another car (completely different quality of car by the way...) on Saturday morning. And to end up the process they overcharged me even more and I had to open a claim physically. Worst experience of my life whereas I am renting cars very often (over the last 2 months I rented 10 different cars with multiple companies). I will never go to Sixt and I will spread the word and advise that everyone do the same.
6.8 GoodAug 7 2020
All was fine until SIXT dropped a surprise one after dropping it off claiming I had gashed a hubcap and asking me to fill out a ludicrous full accident report for it and asking if I called the police. Frombthe pictures they sent me I cannot for the life of me understand what they are talking about.
4.8 OkayApr 26 2020
Good deal on the convertible car for the day. Employees were helpful at Union Square at time of visit.My reservation said to pick up my car at Fisherman's Wharf but the car wasn't there so I had to go to Union Square to pick it up, but the employee at Fisherman's Wharf told me I had to call customer service myself and let them know I was coming. Then at Union Square, the employees had a difficult - lengthy - time figuring out how to switch everything for me to rent the car. Overall it took 2 hours to rent this car when most of the time was spent waiting. Not employees fault, the system seems to be partially broken.

Smiling at pick-up, frowning at drop-offCar was new (3,000 miles), clean and ran great. Pick-up at airport was smooth and relatively quick. Rented from Dollar, a sub of Alamo.Rental agent failed to mention that the drop off point in the Fisherman's Wharf area was in the lower parking garage in the Sheraton hotel. The sign for Dollar Rent a Car is hidden from street view and the address for 2500 Mason Street does not seem to exist. It is actually down an alley in the center of the Sheraton. It took an extra 25 minutes of circling the block and finally a call to the rental desk before I could find out where to bring the car in for a landing.

They didn't have a small-sized car that I originally requested, and first gave me a large Ford sedan that was very loud (the moment you turn it on, it makes a VROOM noise without accelerating), and when I requested a different car they said they only had a large SUV, so I ended up taking that which was very uncomfortable to drive.

Did not get car due to lacking credit card.AVIS did not accept debit card, despite state otherwise. Probably because of employee's incompetence. Rental failed. Went to Hertz instead, worked (even without reservation).

Staff was friendly and pick up was smoothCar REEKED of smoke, but was “certified clean”. We unfortunately didn’t have time to change out the car as were already running late but very disappointed as we were in the car for 4+ hours round trip for a road trip and it was an AWFUL smell. Very disappointed and would like to have some money back/a discount

The vehicle was not 4-wheel-drive, unlike the website said. In addition, I was not allowed to drop off the car at a different Hertz office in the same city. What the heck is that about? That’s really poor service.
4.0 OkayJan 22 2019
The car was in excellent shape: new and well-cleaned.The pickup/drop off situation is a nightmare: extremely rude staff, cars not ready (not just for us- several others were also waiting. were "lucky" we only had to wait 30 minutes), no after-hours drop off or instructions for such situations (we had to ask help from the parking attendant..) AVOID

Car was not availableProximity of pickup locationI would have waited for hours to get a car as the waiting list was 15 people and they delivered 2 cars per hour. Service attendant was not helpful at all and looked like he did not care if I get a car or not. Very poor service, ended up reserving a car at the airport and taking Uber to the airport to pick up a car. Service at the airport was excellent

Car was clean and in excellent condition. Car return was easy.Pick up was not convenient. Hertz location inside the hotel was difficult to find. Pickup service is operated through the valet, which meant I had to wait in a queue 25mins while hotel guests picked up/dropped off cars.

The car was nice and very clean, and I appreciated being able to get a car easily during the pandemic.I booked a drop-off location that was closed at the time that I had selected when I started the rental, and was told that extending the rental until the next day would cost me $150, which is about 8x what I had paid for the first day. I was told I would also have to pay $150 if I was late dropping the car off at an alternate location, which was much further away. I ended up making the drop-off time and avoided the charges, but was frustrated by being threatened with penalties for a situation that wasn’t my fault and I should have been alerted of when I booked the car, or when I picked it up.

I WOULD HAVE liked to actually get the van I booked and the price I booked it.That I could actually get the van I booked. I was on a cruise ship that was delayed because a passenger was critically ill. We had to return to Honolulu so the Patient could get the care needed. This along with a storm at sea made as a few hours late. I called on Tuesday morning to confirm our van would still be waiting and was told that the reservation had been canceled. It took an exorbitant amount of time to find out why and then to find that there were no more vans available, at all. This was even true of Budget’s sister agency, Avis. I ended up having to book a larger van through Enterprise for 7.5 times the amount of your quote for the minivan. Needless to say I am not happy with the outcome. I will think twice before using your service again.

Hidden charges!NothingReserved a SUV but when I arrived I was told they didn’t have any and I had to pay extra $50+ to get an upgrade, so I ended up drove away with a sedan. Also you had to be really careful now when you book a rental because there could be some hidden charges! I thought filling gas used to be an option (either you pay for a full tank upfront or filling up yourself upon returning your rental), but now they do t even give you that option because “your rate doesn’t give you the option” as I was told! No more Budget for me for sure!
