I rarely do reviews but with this car hire experience I just have to. Everything from booking the car on line, picking and dropping the car back was just exceptional and all done by kind staff at Shannon. I will only use this company from now onwards
Jacqueline D.
I had a great experience at Sixt in Shannon airport. The car was ready, it was just perfect, the agent Rob was gracious and helpful, and so considerate of my need for a coffee before signing out the car and heading out into the dark, rainy Irish morning (driving on the left hand side of course) after a transatlantic flight! Will for sure go with Sixt again for my next rental. Thank you!
