2.0 Poor

Jul 2023

Absolutely terrible. I reserved AT THE AIRPORT. The car was in Torshavn. I had to spend USD $125 to get there and DK 1000 to drop it off. I’m not stupid. I can read maps. This is NOT what I reserved. The first car wouldn’t start—even no response with battery jumpers. The se car had already been wrecked/damaged. The collision sensor went off EVERY HALF A MINUTE. Is Sixt going to pay for the Psychiatrist?!? Took it back where front plate was removed (it was mangled and causing sensor to detect collisions constantly. BTW, at the airport at departure I overheard someone else saying they would never rent from Sixt again. Amen! To be fair, the woman who tended to us was as nice as could be. Professional, apologetic. Kudos to her.
