Really happy by the service, Marius and his team are doing their best to fulfill wishes. My car(a) were both relatively new and well maintained. Only the interior could have been better cleaned (inner windshield). But other than that, perfect! Thank you & will come back :)

Great experience renting a car here for 5 days. The pickup process was painless, small scuffs / marks on the car were all checked and noted and then we were done in less than 15 minutes. The car was a nice VW Passat in really good condition and it drove well. Drop off was equally painless and quick.
Very nice team there. I received good car and the return was smooth too. I got good recommendations for my stay too and thank you Freddy for your stories.

I had a rental car for two weeks from, Sixt Rent a Car Sibiu. I had a very good experience and the attitude has been changed in better, or I would say even the best, since my last rent over there three years ago. Thanks to Sebastian, who helped me at the desk. Professional, fast and transparent on the rental process.
I made a reservation via the Sixt App and had additional insurance covering the excess provided through my credit card. Sebastian gave me a very efficient and informative check-in experience and his younger colleague inspecting the car was very friendly and accurate both during check-in and checkout. The car was a small upgrade to the initially booked category and fairly new with 18k kilometres on the clock. To sum up, I had a very good experience with Sixt at Sibiu Airport and would recommend them anytime! Thank you

Easy pick up at airport, convenient and customer friendly at a great price on a good car.

We rented a car for 4 days directly at the airport without pre booking. The agent taking care of us was very, very professional and helpful. We received a Skoda Rapid in a very good condition and all the instructions needed. We will definitely return to Sixt when in Sibiu and perhaps in other locations too. As general advice: if you arrive early in the morning at the airport they might still have cars to rent without pre booking, otherwise not pre booking might be a bit risky. We paid by card but it can be a good idea to have cash with you.
