Winter in California

Winter in California

The winter months in California tend to be colder and wetter, meaning that this is a convenient time to enjoy some of the state’s indoor activities, such as museums. The Getty is a famous museum in Los Angeles that has a selection of contemporary art, while the Bowers Museum is in Santa Ana and has over 100,000 objects from different cultures, including pre-Columbian Mesoamerica and Native American art.

We had a really good experience. I opted to rent offsite from LAX to save $. Charmaine is a fabulous employee who was able to manage a full lobby on her own. She was calm and very friendly. We didn’t feel rushed even though we knew there were people waiting. She processed our reservation quickly and we were on the road. (She also processed out return.) We plan to rent from this office on our next trip to LA because of how great Charmaine made our experience. :)

Charlene is the best! Great service, knowledgeable about the cars, super friendly, and she made all-around great rental experience. Also, super convenient, clean location with a special selection of vehicles. We’re now a one EV car family, so Charlene and Sixt will be seeing a lot more of us for road trip and fun cars. No reason to rent anywhere else.

Great, great customer service. Best place on the westside to rent a car. Actually everyone in person at Sixt, in any store is awesome: nice, helpful, competent, smart. It's true that Sixt's phone customer service leaves a lot to be desired, but don't be put off. Once you're dealing with in-store team (especially in Venice or Santa Monica), you're in good hands.
