This WAS a fun bar with professional management: but now is full of drunken local expats who abuse the visiting clients and a new management do not care. Go to Living Room or View Bar but at all... more »

At a certain point, staff threatended me with imprisonment if i did not return the car right away. This was out of the blue after weeks of renting. They said it was all automated. In the end, I feel like i was not able to speak to anyone represnting the company; its all automated and does not make sense from the perspective of the renter/payee.
Sixt is a great company in Germany. In the USA. In Mexico. All top. But in Spain you really need to be careful and keep ALL documents in writing until months after you have delivered the car back. They will give you an offer per email, confirm it with the written contract you sign upon pickup and you get the car. So far so good. However - when you bring it back, the offer is no longer valid 'because we don't accept that in Spain'. Well - a written offer is a written offer. We have a company rate with Sixt and it includes extra drivers for free. When bringing the car back we were charged an extra €74 for the driver, that we have paid for already. When presented for the mistake, the young lady simply stated: That rate is not valid in Spain. I gave up finding the offer from 2 months ago among 100s of emails (was a 1 month rental) and left the office. No need to waste 1 hour for €74. On top they are charging an unknown amount for a scratch below the car and for marks that looks like a simple polish Job. See photos. Will adjust this review with a copy of the bill, when I get it. Avoid if you can.
