Rental Car Question
Is anyone familiar with SIXT car rentals? They are available at the Ft Lauderdale airport and their prices are about half of the other car rental companies. . . I found they are a European company, with lots of rental options in Europe, and some locations in Florida airports. The "customer reviews" on their website all rave - but that's to be expected... anyone have any experience or hearsay to share? Thanks.

No, sorry, I've never used them. All of the rental companies are off-site from the airport in Ft. Lauderdale. They should have a shuttle that runs to their site where you'll pick up and leave the car. Then, they should offer you a shuttle to the port. Notice I said "should":)

Actually, you can walk tight into the rental car facility in Ft. Lauderdale if you arrive into Terminal 1, which is where Southwest/Air Tran Airlines arrive, and maybe others. If you arrive into Terminals 2 or 3, there's a shuttle bus that goes to that same garage. I've never used Sixt but have seen them listed.

last yr I rented a car at fort lauderdale for 24.00 total for 24 hrs. I got it from priceline, I think I would stick with a tried and true rental company, but thats just me. if you go to priceline, I used name your own price and I got it for like 16.00 dollars plus tax.

I know your post is from several years ago, but I feel compelled to post. We reserved a car in Germany through Expedia in 2012. The company we actually rented the car from was SIXT. Several weeks after we got home, I started getting threatening emails from them demanding over $1000 for the supposed damage I did to their car. After weeks going back and forth, threatening to hire an attorney, reminding them that we bought insurance both through expedia and them, they apologized and left us alone.
