Price Efficiency and speed of team at pick-upLocation of rental car lot at BHX airport is terrible (not Alamo's fault of course) Drop-off at 6:30am not enough staff working at the pickup/dropoff location. Had to leave the car without it being inspected as all (2) staff (Enterprise) were working with pickup customers.

My booking was for 8.00am, I arrived at 7.35am - I could collect the car for an extra charge of GBP105... I opted to go for breakfast, better value for money. Returned at 8.15 and stood in the British January weather in the wide open for 15 to 20 minutes waiting for my turn to even get inside. This is when the magic really started - my Renault Captur (classed as an SUV by Sixt) was turned into a Skoda Fabia (manual) which is not even listed as an option with Sixt but the Automatic version is considered a saloon - yes, somehow Sixt believe that a typical Hatchback is the same as a saloon... Overall, how would I rate the Sixt experience - one of the worst ever and I have been renting cars at UK airports for over 10 years, on average once per month.

The service that you provided was excellent and I will always look on your site first to hire a carAs I had to return the car early and put the keys in the outside safe there were no staff to check over the car with me.

Atrocious service. Arrived with my dog after checking terms & conditions were fine, to be told my dog was 'too excited' & so I was refused my car. Of course I was not offered a refund. We all know what car hire companies can be like. Avoid this one until it goes out of business

Good price, long linesI got a brand new car, it only had 65 miles, I was the 2nd person to hire it.Check in process was slow, there was a queue of about 8 people in front of me and 2 people behind me (Probably because the prices were so low)

Huge crack in windscreen in drivers viewCheap and efficientI needed to extend the car and it was £21 cheaper to do this via a broker which meant I had to make the trip to green motion to effectively hand over another £400 deposit to keep the same car. Why this couldn't be done over the phone, I do not know.
