Line is super long at the airport, long queuing time. But staff at the counter is super friendly, and greeted me happy birthday.
8.0 ExcellentApr 30 2022
Very long wait (over 30 minutes) in line at counter at Schiphol to pick up the car. For the rest it was fine.
6.0 GoodApr 25 2022
Drop off was not so clear, nobody at the office and no clear indication where to park the car. The phone line is kind of useless, spending time to linsten the automatic answers and speak with someone is difficult. The rest was good
8.0 ExcellentApr 21 2022
There were so many people at the same time waiting for the pick up that we had to wait for over 40 minutes. The staff were very friendly and helpfull but the line was too much after a flight.
10.0 ExcellentApr 19 2022
Standard car was an electric one, not ideal for long travel so got a 'discounted' upgrade to MB E200 - lovely cruising car, top quality.
2.0 MediocreApr 10 2022
I was given another car and I was charged more than on the initial booking
2.0 MediocreApr 2 2022
The electric charging cable was malfunctioning and required us to return to pick up another vehicle. All Sixt offered was a "free upgrade" for the next time we rented with them. Utter BS
2.0 MediocreMar 22 2022
Ordered vehicle was not available due to 'being more than 1 hour late' although flight number was in the booking and the flight delayed, instead all other vehicles were ~20 euros more per day

SIXT are the wort among all Rent a car companies in terms of Client assistance, services and facilities, i told my company to leave them as desperate choice, i will avoid dealing with them, and will advice everyone i know not to deal with them.

For a compact car, the VW T-Cross we got had surprisingly many features, hill holder, lane assist, wireless phone charging, great navigation and parking aid. Stuff was nice. However, keep in mind that presenting a credit card is a must, debit cards are not accepted.
6.4 GoodJul 11 2019
The car was good. It ran great. No issues with it. Got me to point A to point BI had purchased the accident insurance from you Kayak. But when I arrived from the Pick up desk and told them that I had insurance already they told me if I didn’t not purchase insurance through them they were going to have to place a €1000 deposit hold on my credit card. All the money I had left.

picking up the car was great, but when we arrived to drop off the car no one was around until 8am and we didn't see a key box anywhere. We almost missed our flight because I had to run back at 8am to drop off the keys and the lady working would get me a receipt for our return.

Wrong Car, Wrong Insurance, Big HeadacheWhen I arrived, the car I booked wasn't available. The car they replaced it with was too small for our group, so we were stuck cramped in a tight space and having to shuttle back and forth for our whole trip. I asked for full insurance coverage and only received basic coverage. Now they say there is a small scratch on the bumper and have charged 850 euros to my credit card for the damage. This has been an absolute nightmare.

The pick up agent is slow and unfair. She charged us for 2nd driver without our consent. Also, it took her over one hour to complete the process yet our pick up time started as soon as we talked.The pick up time should be from the time we got the key, not from the time we were at the signing desk.

The automobile was great -- Volvo xc60, almost new.The rental pickup and return was terrible. I tried to change the location for the pickup and return, and spent hours on the phone trying to contact the locations themselves, without success. I first called from the U.S. to try to pick up the car in the city of Amsterdam instead of Schipol airport -- I was told this would cost me an additional $900! Attempts to reach the rental locations in Amsterdam to confirm this were impossible - on hold for more than an hour. When I went to Schipol airport to pick up the car, they told me that I could have picked up the car in the city center at no extra charge! Similar situation on the dropoff -- I was unable to reach any location to see if I could drop the car closer to my hotel in Paris. Finally, I left a pair of sunglasses in the car. I spent three days trying to call the bureau to see if they were found, and also emailed the customer service departments in Paris and Amsterdam. No response
4.8 OkayMay 2 2017
We used the car for less than 24 hours but Avis charged us for 2 days. Fuel on the car when we rented it was supposed to be full. It was a little over 3/4 full

You should not charge customers for damage that was not done by them. I was charged 360 Euro for a rim that was already damaged and 18 Euro for gas tank that was 9/10 full. An absolute rip off!!!! Never renting a car from this company again and I will not be recommending this company to anyone either. I want to stay in business you need to be honest, not issue ghost charges to customers. That is not the way to recover your loses for bad a business season last year.

Exceptional customer serviceThe pick up and drop off processes were super fast and friendly. I am not used to driving European cars and they answered a few questions that I felt were...lets say "basic", without making me feel like an idiot. The man at the vehicle return was very nice as well and informed me where the nearest gas station was so that I could fill up and return quickly before my reservation expired and I would have to pay for the gas refill.

Nightmare rental and ruined our Christmas.We picked up the rental and immediately noticed the poor condition of vehicle. I told attendant and they said there was nothing that could be done. When arriving to our hotel and the city areas we noticed it wasn't going into gear properly. The valet attendant at the hotel also mentioned to us that something was wrong. We notified the company immediately and after 4 hours of waiting for a mechanic to show we decided to go get our kids something to eat. When we got back the mechanic had come and took the car with our personal belongings. Car seat, stroller and baby carrier and bag well over $1,000 worth of things. I had to pay over $100 in cab fees and call the police to get my things back from the company. This was all on Christmas Day. No one tried to fix or make this up to us. They did not care at all. I ended up having to spend $700 more in a rental because that's all that was available with another company at short notice on Christmas. I don't understand how people can be so cold hearted and inconsiderate.

I didn’t like the fact that kayak gives the WRONG RETURN ADDRESS ON EMAIL. When I pressed GET DIRECTIONS I expect it to be the correct address. VERY STREESFUL driving around Schiphol trying to find the correct address after searching for 30 minutes and running overtime almost. I took it up with green motion and they said they advised their move to you 12 months ago so is not their fault. PLEASE FIX KAYAK!! Unimpressed guys.

Top tips for hiring a car at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

  • Car hire at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is made easy because six of the most popular big-name car rental companies are all situated directly behind the arrivals hall of the airport, in a central area called Schiphol Plaza. There are several more agencies in the immediate surrounding area to the airport and these are accessible via a short walk or a shuttle service if you have a lot of luggage.
  • The airport is approximately seven and a half miles from the city centre, Amsterdam Centraal, which should take you about 10min to get there by car, however, with Amsterdam's constant construction going on it is not unusual to get stuck behind a construction vehicle for a couple of minutes extending your travel time slightly. Also, keep in mind that you will need to drive slowly and be mindful of pedestrians and bikes as the streets are teeming with activity.
  • We highly recommend pre-booking your vehicle through us and loading your flight details onto your online booking information, at which point a collection time will be advised by the agency you have decided to use for your Amsterdam Schiphol Airport car hire. You should try to stick to this time as best you can. However, if you are running late for whatever reason be sure to contact the agency. Don't worry if your flight is delayed or cancelled, the agency will be able to track your flight from the details provided and adjust your booking accordingly.
  • Car hire at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport does require you to have a chargeable credit card on the collection of the vehicle to pay your deposit. This deposit covers damage or theft to the car while in your care. It is generally refunded to your credit account between seven and 21 working days.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport for R283 or less
