Well done Mr Gunster and thank you once again"

  • | 08.01.2014

    "Truly outstanding rental experience. I've rented many many cars, all over the world, over the last 25 years and this was one of the best experiences. I was held up by another rental company (Europcar) so had to do a same-day rental. Sixt saved the day by providing a great car at a great price -- a much better deal that I would have had with Europcar. The rest of the rental was great too -- employees were helpful and the coffee in the rental building was a nice extra touch. Keep up the great work!"

  • | 08.01.2014

    "No problems, good service."

  • | 03.01.2014

    "I rent vehicles all over the world with Avis etc. This was by far the most caring and personalised rental experience i have ever experienced (and the price was good!)"

  • | 02.01.2014

    "We were extremely happy with all aspects of our rental with Sixt.We are looking for another rental in the next few weeks and have decided to look for Sixt in the area we will be travelling too."

  • | 28.12.2013

    "Everything was great. Loved the car and the service. The location was a little hard to find on the way back but not too bad."

  • | 27.12.2013

    "It goes without saying that your staff have always been extraordinary. In this particular branch, I have noted two individuals: Asta and Anita. They make me feel special and valued as a Platimum card holder. They take their time and provide a memorable rental experience. Congratulations on selection of your human ware! Your staff are your greatest asset and that goes without saying when renting in London, I will come to Sixt Heathrow!"

  • | 26.12.2013

    "I found the process to be efficient and professional from booking the car on the internet through to returning the vehicle. I was traveling with 2 children and the shuttle bus was waiting when we left the airport and one was waiting when we returned the car to take us back to the airport. The staff were helpful and friendly. This made a big difference to me and we will use Sixt again."

  • | 25.12.2013

    "I was very happy to experience that the branch agent was honest and straight forward without a hint of trying hustle us into hidden costs for upgrade deals and added extras. The service at the desk was very efficient and all questions and offers was openely discussed with no hidden agendas.We really appreciate the approach as recently we very recently experienced 2 other car rentals companies (Avis/Budget) deceiving us with promised upgrades where hidden costs and fees occurred without explaining the costs and trying to hide them with deception. Sixt was a very positive and fresh clear process and we will recommend it to all our friends and use this for our next rental.We only hope Sixt will continue this customer service path and not pursue a way where their agents are more b interested in selling for their own profits and line their own pockets. Thank you very much for bringing honesty and hope back into the car rental industry."

  • | 24.12.2013

    "Thank you for a great experience, not only were your prices the best around by far, the car was exactly as promised and the shuttle service to and from the airport was quick and easy. By far the easiest rental experience I've had. Thank you."

  • | 20.12.2013

    "The rental procedure was efficient, easy and quick. Loved the Audi A1 diesel,would have preferred the A3 which was not available. Hopefully next time.Thank you."

  • | 17.12.2013

    "The best service of any rental company better than Avis and streets ahead of Europcar (who are a disaster)"

  • | 11.12.2013

    "I was very tired after a long and delayed flight. Staff were attentive, and a pleasure."

  • | 08.12.2013

  • | 03.12.2013

    "The lady that rented us our vehicle was so nice and friendly (blond German lady). She took care to get us a car we would feel comfortable in (3 Canadians driving in the UK for the first time). She was patient and lovely and went the extra mile. I wish I had her name, she deserves a shout-out for the effort she puts in!The car was also wonderful (Fiat 500), can't wait until we get them in Canada!Thanks for the wonderful service, great car, and great prices!!"

  • | 03.12.2013

    "It's great to book a BMW/Mercedes and actually get a BMW, not a Skoda, which most companies use as an "equivalent" vehicle. Keep up the good work!"

  • | 02.12.2013

    "When in need of help with a car breakdown in a remote area, SIXT staff were efficient, took the time to understand my needs, and quickly provided aid. Without the outstanding assistance of SIXT, what was a minor inconvenience could have been a major ordeal. Well done SIXT!!"

  • | 26.11.2013

    "The Staff were exceptionally friendly, helpful and respectful"

  • | 23.11.2013

    "Quick, easy, reasonably priced and a virtually new vehicle. What's not to like?"

    "Staff went out of their way to satisfy our need for an economical vehical, which is why we'll use Sixt again. We saved one hundred pounds on petrol costs during our four day rental."

  • | 31.10.2013

    "Nice and efficient staff"

  • | 21.10.2013

    "the price was the number one reason I used sixt on this and all other trips abroad"

  • | 21.10.2013

    "This was the first time I used Sixt and was recommended by friends to do so. I found the overall experience very simply, quick and efficient. The staff I had the pleasure of dealing with both on collection and drop off were extremely helpful and polite. I will definitely be using Sixt again and will also be happy to recommend Sixt to my family, friends and colleagues. Thank you."

  • | 20.10.2013

    "Everything about Sixt is far superior than the competitors Alamo, Enterprise, National. We had originally booked through Alamo, and the hidden costs drove our rental price from $375 for 13 days to over $1200! I called Sixt in a panic and they basically met the competitors price that was originally quoted and included insurance and all fees. Sixt was a godsend. It may be because Sixt is still in majority owned by the original family who started it 100 years ago. Everything--the service, the look of the rental office, prices, the reps--all superior. I am recommending Sixt to all my friends who travel a lot. One of the reps at the office even drove us to our terminal at Heathrow, because we were running late and thought we might miss our flight. You are the best and we appreciate you immensely. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful service!"

  • | 20.10.2013

    "Great service again from Sixt at Heathrow. Thanks."

  • | 18.10.2013

    "Actually I'd just like to add that I find your company extremely friendly, and professional and the staff are very courteous. The fact that your site is a little further away that the other rental companies is not a big deal as long as the shuttle service is good. In fact I found the shuttle service very good. I would definitely use SIXT again. I found your upgrade process straightforward and honest."

  • | 17.10.2013

    "I've rented lots of cars from all different rental car companies at Heathrow airport. Your company is the easiest, most friendly and accommodating . I will only use sixt car rental for all future trips! Do you have a frequent customer program? As I usually visit the UK twice a year for vacation! See you in the spring!Sincerely ,Catherine Lambeth"

  • | 16.10.2013

    "Excellent service, if I had any minor gripes it would be that the outside of the vehicle was a bit tarnished, but that may have been due to recent rain. The pick up and drop off driver was a credit to Sixt. I should have noted his name, sorry"

  • | 13.10.2013

    "From the moment I picked up the car to the moment I dropped it off, it was so easy and hassle free. Thank you!"

  • | 01.10.2013

    "The shuttle bus is a must esp near Heathrow! I found the experience very easy and the staff were very professional and willing to help. Will definitely use your company again. Well done for signpost in your drop off point near terminal 4 - very helpful and easy to spot where I can drive in as its a one way road that stretches for miles. You may also wish to notify customers that this drop off is next to a petrol station where they can fill up the car before handing it back. The car you gave me was lovely, I miss it!"

Not only do I have no complaints, I will certainly rent from you again, as long as your prices remain competitive.Many thanks!"

    Armed police had to storm onto a packed Boeing 777 Emirates flight bound for Dubai from Heathrow Airport and arrested three men after receiving calls from the air crew about a bomb threat. Policevehicles surrounded the aircraft and officers and sniffer dogs proceeded to check the plane for any potential explosive devices. Two of the men have been charged with being drunk on an aircraft whilst one of the men has also been charged with making the threat as the plane taxied along the runway. Both men, from Dover, will appear in court on the 22nd of January to answer the charges against them. With the recent heightening of security across the world's airports following the failed attempt by Nigerian Umar Farouq Abdulmutallab, 23, to blow up a plane bound for the United States the police responded quickly and dealt with the situation.
