    Sixt Rate Details - Booking Engine ExampleSixt's age policy can vary greatly depending on the location of your rental car. However, the majority of Sixt's age policies are in regards to minimum driving ages and young driver surcharges. Minimum driving ages are determined by a combination of local driving laws in the country of your rental and the discretion of each respective Sixt branch. The minimum age to rent a car in the majority of countries is anywhere between 18-25 years of age, however, Sixt may mandate a higher minimum age up to 25-30 years of age for certain premium rental vehicle models (ex. luxury, SUV, vans, etc.).

Sixt's second and less widely available re-fueling option is to opt for the Fuel Purchase Option (FPO), allowing you to return your vehicle without a full tank for a fee paid at the time of pick-up. In the event that you return your Sixt rental car with less than a full tank of fuel and haven't purchased an FPO, you will be subject to re-fueling fees with an increased cost per gallon for the remaining fuel needed to fill your vehicle.
