5.2 OkayDec 31 2019
Pros: Shuttle driver and staff was very friendly.Cons: I was told I had to downgrade my rental or upgrade because the shuttle driver took me to the wrong terminal. Because downgrading wouldn’t work, I had to love up to the larger vehicle and my rental rate DOUBLED!!!
7.6 GoodDec 28 2019
Pros: The staff was very friendly and the service to the airport very efficient.Cons: I believe the class of car was slightly misrepresented. I asked for a mid sized luxury and was presented with a Mini Cooper - not big enough for 3 of us and our luggage. I was upsold for a bigger BMW, and total cost was nearly 100% higher than the quoted price. (I did add a driver to the total). I was charged for a premium location as well, which was not part of my understanding when I booked.
3.6 MediocreOct 2 2019
Pros: Pickup was awful. Had to argue to receive the class of car we had paid for. They were trying to downgrade rather than upgrade us when they did not have the exact type of car available that we had paid for. After arguing, magically, the exact car we had paid for appeared, ready to go!Cons: SIXT has absolutely no signage to direct you to their rental car return at Heathrow. Originally we were booked in to return our car directly at Terminal 5, where I knew we could take the train to Terminal 2. Instead the "helpful" agent changed our drop-off to an off-site location which required bus
10.0 ExcellentAug 31 2019
Pros: I had not even heard of Sixt before, but this experience gave me confidence to use the service again and to recommend it to others.
10.0 ExcellentApr 8 2019
Pros: It was easy...located near T5 inside Sofitel. The time at the counter was kept to a minimum and the people at the counter friendly and helpful.
9.6 ExcellentJan 20 2019
Pros: Good service at both ends. Good car.Cons: Pickup at Heathrow was difficult to find, however we could have used the bus service and that would have simplified.
3.2 MediocreJan 2 2019
Horrible service at T5 Heathrow airportPros: NothingCons: Claim it is in the airport but you have to walk 20min. Better take a shuttle! Staff was very unfriendly and told us they only hold the car for one hour when we arrived with a 2 hours delay... they couldn’t supply the car we booked but instead of offering a bigger car they tried to sell us a smaller one! It had a strong smell of cigarettes and several dents not recorded in the inspection sheet. We had to refuse and after 1:30 of waiting/negotiation we finally magically had the car we booked. Will never use Sixt again
8.4 ExcellentDec 27 2018
Pros: Great service.Cons: Location a little more remote Insurance option explanation not clear
2.0 MediocreNov 5 2018
Fraudulent and very I’ll manneredPros: Absolutely nothingCons: Did not have the car I ordered but were willing to rent me a bigger car for considerably more. Insisted I buy their insurance at a ridiculous cost even though I had documentation for ample coverage from the US. Totally belligerent and disrespectful. This was the terminal 3 office at LHR. Best decision was to walk away. Do you know that we do have options???
6.0 GoodJun 16 2018
Insurance rip offPros: Their charges for insurance are outrageous ! Also the kayak lists charges which are much different than Sixts’ website. Another case of bait and switch when the customer has zero options.Cons: The insurance is ridiculous !

6.8 GoodSep 17 2018
Cons: 1. heck of a long line to get the car; why does it take such a long time to rent a car when it's pre-ordered and it's just some basic paperwork. 2. I'm still waiting for a bill; haven't even received one by email. Their system was down when I returned the car and yet I've been charged more than was quoted with no explanation at the time of return.
5.2 OkayDec 31 2017
Bad CommunicationPros: Clean, good car.Cons: Had questions about the rental, both before and during. NEVER GOT REPLY from email I sent before rental started. Called during rental, after 20 minutes on hold I was hung up on. Very bad. Also, at pickup I was pushed too much to upgrade, when I finally got them to understand "NO!" they got very abrupt. "There's your key. The car's out there in slot 8."
5.6 OkayMay 11 2017
Smooth process until I got wrongly charged for an extra dayPros: It was a pretty smooth process except for getting charged an extra day.Cons: They charged me for an extra day, which amounted to more than my previous 5 days, even though I returned the car a couple of hours early on my scheduled day. I got a text when I got back to the US asking me when I was planning on returning the car. I had already returned it the day before. I am in the process of disputing this, they asked me to submit proof of my boarding pass showing when I flew out, which I have. I'm waiting to hear back.
10.0 ExcellentApr 19 2017
Pros: great car. roomy, great mileage per gallon with nav and safety features. Great price too!!!!
7.2 GoodSep 27 2016
Pick up was awfulPros: Budget upgraded us (several levels?) because of the inconvenience at pickup, even though we didn't request it. The representative was helpful, kind and cheerful.Cons: Pick up at the airport was awful in at least 4 ways. We chose Budget because they advertised pick up at the terminal and we wanted a quick, smooth get away. Instead it was a (1) shuttle ride to a (2) very long line in a (3) terribly hot waiting area and a (4) wait for a car to be returned and cleaned so we could start our holiday.

2.0 MediocreSep 21 2019
Cons: I made the mistake of not bringing my passport to the rental counter. Although not explicitly stated anywhere in the terms and conditions, a passport for foreign tourists is required to rent a car from Avis Heathrow. A driver's license is not sufficient documentation.
4.8 OkayMar 11 2019
Pros: The staff seemed nice, but didn't inform you of extra things (like paying extra for wifi or navigation which are standard in all cars now). Also signage to get to location is HORRIBLE in the airport + no employees of the airport really know how to tell you to get there.
9.6 ExcellentMar 6 2019
Pros: I booked online and the auto booking had me pick up at T5 as it was my flight out. But I landed at T3 and didn’t realize. T3 Avis staff excellent sorting it out.Cons: Is it me or is there a clear deliberate check in pick up and drop off location? Small point.
2.0 MediocreOct 8 2018
DisapointedPros: Car was clean inside.Cons: Night time flight tried to reduce the hassle of insurance early in the a.m. Made reservation on line with car rentals .com for a Hyundai -I 30 at he same time I purchased the collision damage coverage. This was through Allianz insurance. At check in at Avis they would not accept this insurance, they allowed me to call Allianz in the US their rep was helpful and was sorry the insurance was not accepted, a refund was offered and accepted. Bottom line I wound up paying about $ 100 more for this rental. And the car supplied was smaller than the model I requested.
6.0 GoodJul 4 2018
Cons: I was inadvertently upsold to a more expensive rental than I had reserved on line. The end price was almost twice as much. I will need to strategize how to avoid that in the future if I look at renting from Avis again.
