RAKSHA - Most amazing Customer Service My partner and I had to urgently rent a car and make a trip to Calais, France from London. We booked with SIXT and decided to pick up the vehicle from the Gatwick Airport office. We were so lucky to be helped by Raksha! She was the most personable and incredible customer service representative I had ever encountered in my life. The reason for booking a car was not easy, and she listened to our story with compassion and grace. Raksha made sure we had the most comfortable ride to Calais and was so kind to give us that option. We will be forever grateful to Raksha for being such a wonderful person and frankly, in such a difficult time that my partner and I had lived through that night, it restored my faith in people being driven by kindness first and not sales. Dear Raksha, thank you so so much for being so helpful that night. You went above and beyond, more than we had expected! Thank you kindly for your help.

Staff extremely kind and helpful. Car in very good condition.
Barry O.
The SIXT team were friendly, very attentive and were pleasant to deal with. The only gripe i would have and this is not SIXT fault is the location of the Car Rental booths. Usually the car hire booths are very near Arrivals but for some reason UK airports see fit to place the booths outside the airports altogether
