Willem Versteeg SIXT Rent a Car Grenoble Airport
“GOOD BUT WITH ADDED COSTS”

“"IT'S A GOOD COMPANY BUT I WAS CONFRONTED WITH ADDITIONAL CHARGES THAT WERE NOT COMMUNICATED ON THE INTERNET AT THE TIME OF BOOKING THE CAR. TIRES, CHAINS, ADDITIONAL INSURANCES, MILEAGE ALLOWANCES, ETC. IT EASILY INCREASED THE COSTS BY 50%."”
