Pros:

Car, cleanliness, ease of process. Overall car hire as it should be - no excess hard sell, just here’s your car and off you go. Return even simpler.

Cons:

Delay in picking up due to 1 person only dealing with all Budget and Avis rentals. Not his fault - he was very efficient and friendly but policy decision to employ only 1 person to cover all pickups for 2 companies.

The gas tank is never full when you pick up the car (on 2 occasions). So you are either penalized if you leave it a little short on fuel (I was) or you make a fuel donation to sixt if it’s over fueled at all. This almost seems deliberate to me.

Sixt would not honor my Kayak reservation, they refused to rent a car to me. They said they couldn’t because I was over 75. But they knew my age when they made the reservation. It was a horrible experience. We planned a two week driving trip. They should have not made the reservation. And when I was at the counter, they should have found a way to get me a car. I’m very disappointed with Kayak and Sixt for doing that to me. I was able to find a Walk-Up rental from Enterprise which was hundreds of dollars more expensive than my Kayak reservation. I feel that Kayak and/or Sixt should compensate me for my loss.

Our experience with Sixt was the best. We always have low expectations when it comes to car rentals from previous experiences. Everything was professionally handled, took very little time, the car was great, and check-in and out were seamless. Thank you for a great experience!

Everything was a great experience EXCEPT..........One major Issue that if it was not for my bank manager answering his email in Canada immediately bless his heart while I was standing at the car rental company (SIXT) in Northern Ireland.... I would have been screwed for almost double my car rental. Travelers!!!! Be aware and alert.... BEFORE LEAVING Canada..... if you are using your credit card to cover the insurance of your car rental, MAKE VERY SURE that you get a letter from your Bank card Holder stating that they are covering the replacement cost of the vehicle in the event of an accident abroad. It is NOT ENOUGH to just know that your credit card will cover insurance on your rental car. You have to get it in writing as a letter either from Visa or your bank that carries the credit card. The car rental will need to see and have a copy of it. Otherwise you will pay LOTS more for the car rental than you originally expected it would be. My car rental was $169.00 cdn for three days in Ireland and without the letter my bank emailed me instantly (lucky for me) the car rental would have charged me an additional $170.00 for added car replacement cost insurance without the letter. Other than the the car rental company SIXT and Kayak were great and the price was excellent. Kevin

Jul 2018

Pros:

Hertz rental in UK (I’m from USA) was reasonably convenient- I accidentally booked from wrong Airport. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to pick up at the other airport- though they tried! They helpfully delayed pickup. I should have investigated insurance more thoroughly so that added unexpected costs. Still a good cake given unlimited mileage!

Cons:

Car was very basic model and smelt vaguely musty. Again insurance charges were unexpected expense. (2x estimated).

Had vehicle booked for pickup at 10 am , arrived at 11am, and they had given vehicle away, advised they only hold for 30 mins of pickup time, and were very rude and not helpful, then they finally found another vehicle (basically same one) and wanted us to pay an additional 800 british pound sterling on top of rental agreement. So we went to enterprise and received a vehicle from them I would never recommend this Company

When I arrived at Belfast Aldergrove.. Hertz Which I usually book direct ..but made a mistake using KAYAK I spoke to Michael and advised me to ring the company as they had not insured the car …he was very apologetic…but there was nothing he could do ….he gave me a local number to ring …but I couldn’t speak to anyone . I just went outside and got a taxi which cost me £28 to get to my elderly mothers house ….don’t use KAYAK …speak to Hertz directly …they are a fantastic company …but because I used a 3rd party to book with them …there was nothing they could do. I will in future book with Michael direct as I always get 100% …I just made the mistake going cheaper through KAYAK.

I was charged an extra insurance product that wasn't in the pricing and left with no choice but to take it at the time. Fuel tank was also not full as per Ts & Cs. My fault for going to a lower quality provider than the main players but I won't be back. It would be cheaper to accept the higher headline costs from Budget or Hertz in future.

Top tips for renting a car in Belfast

  • Escape the congested public transportation system and pricey taxi fares in Belfast by renting a car, which is also the best option for getting to know this city. A car works wonders for travelers looking to explore some of Northern Ireland's most scenic routes and iconic destinations, including Dunluce Castle, UNESCO World Heritage site Giant's Causeway, and Castle Ward, which is the filming location of Winterfell in Game of Thrones.
  • All the big car hire agencies can be found at Belfast International Airport (BFS), which is only 18 miles northwest of the city center. All the car hire desks are located in the domestic arrivals hall, which is on the lower floor of the airport's passenger terminal. The smaller George Best Belfast City Airport (BHD) is only 3 miles from the city center, and its car hire counters can be found in the Arrivals Hall.
  • The main rule about driving in the United Kingdom is that traffic runs on the left-hand side of the road. As a small city, Belfast is relatively easy to drive around. If you cross the border into the Republic of Ireland, remember currency changes from the pound to the euro, and kilometers will be used instead of miles.
  • Belfast roads can experience quite a bit of traffic congestion, so you may want to avoid driving during morning rush hour (especially if you're driving into the city), between 6:30 and 9:30 a.m., and also during the evening rush hour, from 4 to 7 p.m. (if you're driving out of the city). The M2/Nelson Street/York Link junction tends to be the most congested road, but traffic also builds up on the A1/M1 in the morning and before junction 3 on the M1 in the evening. Roads in Northern Ireland are toll-free.
  • Book your rental car in Belfast at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Belfast are around 16% cheaper than other car types, on average
