The lady on the desk when we picked up the car was amazing … pick up point terminal 2 . Sorry I forgotten her name. She was very helpful. When we come over on again I’m positive that we will be using your services again. Many thanks Jason & Andrea HumphriesReviewed Jan 13 2024

We had to wait 20 minutes for collection but we were a little early and they didn’t open until 7am. Overall collection was straight forward, nice new cars with very little damage. Handing the car back was a simple and straight forward process. Will use again in future.Reviewed Sep 13 2022

Pick-up is in a hotel. Shuttle bus takes you two floors down. Then you have to take an elevator up (with all luggage). Long wait (45 minutes). Elevator down to collect the car. Everything together roughly 90 minutes.Reviewed Sep 11 2022

Super convenient, minimal lines, good customer service, free upgrade. Price higher than other agencies, but had to book last minute so that may have been why.Reviewed Jul 16 2022

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.Reviewed Dec 28 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 busReviewed Oct 2 2019

Not customer friendlyPros:Friendly driverCons:Poor customer orientation: - Driver arrived 45min after pickup call (we waited in 0 degree weather) - Unable to add Sixt loyalty card onsite - Mandatory insurance complicates credit card backed insurance. - Service personel at checkin not thinking with the customer, did not seem knowledgeable. She tried to sell us unnecessary insuranceReviewed Mar 20 2018

Good car, bad locationPros:The car, employees, service and experience of renting from Sixt were all good; however, returning the car was a nightmare. Somehow Sixt does not have an address that can be found on GPS. The directions from our hotel were convoluted and confusing for someone not familiar with the Heathrow area. Finding Sixt to return the car was the most stressful part of our trip. The car itself was clean and comfortable, the service fine.Cons:LocationReviewed Aug 2 2017

Top tips for renting a car from Sixt at London Heathrow Airport

  • London is a busy capital city with a modern transport infrastructure, which sometimes means you will need to change from trains to buses and occasionally even cable cars to get to your destination. SIXT car hire at London Heathrow Airport (LHR) offers flexibility to your journey that other modes of transport do not. For example, to go to Staines by car from the terminal takes around 11min via the M25. If you were to compete the same journey using public transport the total duration would be about 38min. You’d also need to change along the way and adhere to the transport timetable.
  • London Heathrow Airport is around 17 miles from the city centre. There is a SIXT branch at the Sofitel near to Terminal 5. To get to the office from Terminals 2 and 3 you can use the SIXT shuttle service, which is outside the Arrivals halls. Whereas if you land at Terminal 4 you should take the free Heathrow Express to Terminal 5, from where you can walk to the SIXT branch. You need to be at least 21 in order to get a car hire and have had your licence for one year. If you’re under 25 it’s likely you’ll need to pay a surcharge too.
  • You must ensure that you’re following the road rules when you’re departing in your car hire from Heathrow Airport.
