Was skeptical at first after reading all the negative feedback. But as long as you’re fully insured, nothing to worry about. Good experience with Sixt. Thumbs up!

I’ve hired many cars in my lifetime all around the world and had many experiences (good and bad). I can honestly say Sixt at Faro airport were excellent (hence 5 stars). This was a very honest company. Did not try to offer different cars or charge dishonest fees. Absolutely 100% recommend and for certain will use them again.

Colleague #Gonçalo helped fantastic with a spontaneous booking and colleague #Cruz was very supportive when handing the car in. Thank you both!
Manfred S.
All was very good . - location just at the exit, car , simplicity,, - service of the people.., not many(nearly no) bothering questions, very friendly.. etc. Luckily I had a package from ADAC , incl. 2. driver and full insurance for a reasonable price ., About 300€ for 8days, which was definitely worth seeing all the benefits, Unfortunately this package is obviously not possible to book directly or it is becoming a little too expensive. All how it went, this is rental car usage should be. Part of an important good feeling when starting and finishing holidays.
