The minimum age for a SIXT rental in Australia is 21 with a license held for at least 1 year. Some car categories have a higher minimum age for rental, and an underage driver surcharge is applied for those under 25.
You will need a valid driver’s license held for at least 1 year. International renters and drivers need their passport and an international driving permit.
Australia has multiple toll roads, and they all use an electronic toll payment system. Cash is not accepted. The SIXT fleet is outfitted with e-Tags that make electronic toll payments automatically. Your credit card will be billed for the toll amount without any additional fee added.
Vehicles drive on the left-hand side of the road in Australia, and beware of the frequent roundabouts! Looking at your phone, not wearing your seatbelt, and drinking and driving are absolutely not allowed.
We accept all major credit cards, and the card must be in the main renter’s name. Traveler’s checks and EFTPOS are accepted at airport locations in Australia. Prepaid and debit cards, along with cash, are not accepted.
One-way rentals between SIXT stations in Australia are allowed, depending on the tariff.
