Lots of bad reviews here - I was super satisfied with the customer service at Sixt Lisbon - city centre. We booked the lucky dip car (we got this beautiful Audi A1) and drove up to Porto, passing beautiful places like Sintra, Nazaré and Aveiro. I would definitely choose this dealership again for a car rental in the future. Of course it always depends on the insurance you choose (I always take the full-insurance, you’ll never know what happens) and the dealer staff.

Very nice service and attention this time in Lisbon downtown Andrade Corvo street franchise, Mrs Liana. Car without any remark, perfect. Very different from regrettable last time Porto downtown rental.

It was one of the best rentals I have ever used. Considering that I rent 45 times per year. Better than avis, herzt and others.

Rented a car December 2022, the place is small but it was not busy like the airport, delivery was decent and fast, they did the typical checks fuel and surface damages, the car was great I drove 700km a round trip near Porto. The only inconvenience is the area the street is narrow and busy, I had a compact SUV

Very good service when renting our car.
Long queue when picking up the car and some issues for paying with card. But the car itself was very good and we enjoyed driving around in Portugal.
I read the reviews prior to renting and was a little hesitant. But I booked through American Express, so I knew I was protected should any of these supposed problems come up. They didn't. I had a wonderful experience and the car was perfect and what I requested. I would recommend choosing an off-peak time for pick up as it was really busy. But they had every counter open and had at least 6 people running for vehicles. I have zero complaints about this location.
