Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.

Any booking that is pre-paid online will be subject to the Sixt cancellation policy. Any cancellation and rebooking will incur a nominal fee. If you cancel without rebooking the cancellation charge amount will be equivalent of your rental (up to a maximum of 3 days hire including any selected extras).
Any booking that is not pre-paid online can be rebooked or cancelled with no additional charge.
Payment with Sixt can be made by using a credit card or debit card. Accepted cards include:
Only UK debit cards can be accepted for payment. Prepaid credit cards are not accepted.
If you are making a pre-paid online booking the card needs to be in the name of the main driver and should be brought with you when picking up the van.
Prepaid van bookings will be charged before the beginning of the rental.
A deposit will also be required at time of pick up. This will be fully refunded when the van is dropped off.
Credit card payments will require a deposit of twice the full rental price, with a minimum deposit of £250.
If paying by debit card the deposit amount will be the value of the rental plus £250.
The main driver and any additional drivers must show a full driving license (if U.K. license both the photographic and paper sections are needed). Each license should have a maximum of 6 penalty points.
Any driving license using a non-Roman alphabet (e.g. Arabic, Japanese, Cyrillic etc) should be accompanied by an International driving license. Any driving licenses from countries not part of the International Driving License treaty must be accompanied by an official translation of the license as well as the original license.
If you plan to pay by debit card you should also bring an additional form of identification (other than passport), such as a recent (within past 3 months) utility bill, bank statement, council tax or tenancy agreement, a second credit or debit card, building society book or identity card.
A passport or valid identity card is required for any customer who does not hold a Sixt Express card.
Sixt van rental includes Third Party Liability (TL) and a Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) insurance coverage as part of your quote. The Loss Damage Waiver includes a liability excess amount of £1000.
You can choose to reduce your excess liability with optional insurance coverage:
Excess: £500 (£8.00 per day)
Excess: £75 (£18.00 per day)
There is also an optional Glass and Windscreen coverage available during your hire, in the event of damage to the windscreen, windows or mirrors (not covered by the Loss Damage Waiver). This insurance removes any excess liability for any damage (unless part of a larger repair).
Glass and Windscreen Coverage: £4.99 per hire
