Great car, straight forward rentalPros: No pressure to take out additional insurance. Car was relatively new in perfect condition.Cons: No one at the desk at Airport when we arrived to turn in the car
10.0 Excellent2017 Jul 15
Pros: they were very friendly despite the fact that I had the wrong pickup time and was 6h later
7.6 Good2017 Jan 01
Pros: Pretty much everything. Drop off at MUC is excellent, takes just secondsCons: Hertz office at Dreispitz in Basel is hard to find. Signs lead to a carwash, not to the office. The vehicle had two tires inside, taking up the entire trunk space. The guy at the office was telling me unbelievable stories that I have to carry those tires with me. Fortunately in another Hertz office they gladly took those tires from me.

Pros: everythingCons: hard to find parking for after hours drop-off
9.6 Excellent2016 Oct 11
Great car, nice staffPros: Everything about the rental went smoothly, the car was clean and comfortable.Cons: It was a bit confusing to find the rental place, since Basel airport has a french side and a swiss side. Of course it's not Hertz's fault, just pay attention if you're renting in Basel airport. Another point is that we paid in advance for a second driver and ended up not using it - would have been nice if there was an option to add another driver in the middle of the trip.

Pros: Wonderful customer service in Basel!
10.0 Excellent2018 Feb 16
Great servicePros: I really liked the service i got, I even got a upgrade for free !!! And they also gave me a cheap price for fuel...
6.4 Good2017 Jun 23
Cons: Didn't realize that there wasn't an easy way to get from the airport to the downtown Sixt location. And then when our flight was late and we couldn't get to the downtown location before they closed, we couldn't transfer our reservation to the Sixt airport location because we prepaid through kayak. We ended up paying for an additional car for one day and then we had to drive back to the city the next day when the downtown location was open to get it all straightened out. It was kind of a pain.
10.0 Excellent2017 May 29
Bright and shiny red Fiat 500Pros: Loved the red Fiat 500, people were kind at Sixt and very helpful. Thanks for all.
4.0 Okay2017 May 24
Cons: The original car I was given had a slow leak in a tire. A warning light came on indicating low tire pressure. I filled up the tire, but even though I didn't drive it for the next couple days, the tire continued to lose air. Ended up having to swap the car. Besides THAT inconvenience, I received an email from SIXT wanting to know how *I* had damaged the car! Not nice, and definitely an unpleasant experience.
6.8 Good2017 Feb 20
Pros: Tha car itself.Cons: The assistant didn t provide any explanation about the car and its way of working. Poor information.

Cons: At drop off , Barbra, customer service extremely rude when I asked her why the extra charges, she kept saying she didn't care and it's not her responsibility when I questioned the extra charges
4.4 Okay2017 Jun 29
Not AmusedPros: The car was newCons: it wasn't the car I had booked. I booked a compact like a VW Up or similar, manual, for 143 and ended up getting a massive Skoda Rapid wagon, automatic, and had to pay almost double the price for it at 217. I had no time to argue. But I got thoroughly ripped off. Will stick with Hertz
8.0 Excellent2016 Nov 02
Pros: Car was fine. Clean and easy to pick-up. It drove well and met expectations.
