Unfortunately Enterprise was unable to help me get a car. They have a new policy of picking up and dropping off at the same location. My flight was canceled and I needed a car to drive home. The lady behind the desk was unhelpful, the office was unfriendly, no where to sit as another employee was taking the one seat and ignoring me. I was visibly distressed but no one seemed to care.

Very friendly and not too pushy on sales for an upgrade.

The staff were extremely helpful. I ended up changing my reservation to an earlier time with no cost, then was unable to make it in that early due to unexpected circumstances. They ended up adjusting it so I could bring it back later on my return date, which they didn’t have to do. Staff is very friendly and laid back. Will definitely come back to this location.Nothing

Pickup was quickThe car only had 1/3 of a tank of gas at pickup. Very disappointing to have to get gas right away. Also, this is a way they get more money out of you by making you return it at an exact amount that is not full. The car smelled terribly of cigarette smoke and made me feel sick the whole trip. Pickup was confusing as I had 3 different addresses for drop off. I called and spoke to someone asking which address was correct and she was not much help.

Sixt has overcharged me for a day and I cannot get ahold of customer service to dispute this. Their customer service line is not accepting calls at the moment so my attempt to communicate has been relegated to email, and they have not yet responded almost a week later.

The staff was kind for the most partI waited 5 hours on the side of a freeway because I got a flat. I wasn’t helped until 2am. The tow driver told me it’s because they try to get the cheapest company. When I called after waiting 3 hours the guy on the phone yelled at me for calling. I was kind and had not asked for an eta before that. Also, when I initially got the flat the car said low tire pressure and they told me I needed to drive it an hour and a half to another SIXT location. It shredded the tires and was not at all safe. Avoid my mistake! They also charge $10 per gallon if you don’t leave the tank filled. After I was up all night bc no hotels were available I was told I’d be given an upgrade. I wasn’t.

Very helpful staff. Had a minor issue with the car and they quickly traded it in for a different one.A little tricky to find the office. There’s a sign, but it’s easy to miss.
2.4 MediocreAug 15 2020
Everything. The car wasn't available on Friday, the agency closed earlier. Leaving me no choices than cancelling my WE plans. Finally got another car (completely different quality of car by the way...) on Saturday morning. And to end up the process they overcharged me even more and I had to open a claim physically. Worst experience of my life whereas I am renting cars very often (over the last 2 months I rented 10 different cars with multiple companies). I will never go to Sixt and I will spread the word and advise that everyone do the same.
6.8 GoodAug 7 2020
All was fine until SIXT dropped a surprise one after dropping it off claiming I had gashed a hubcap and asking me to fill out a ludicrous full accident report for it and asking if I called the police. Frombthe pictures they sent me I cannot for the life of me understand what they are talking about.

Good deal on the convertible car for the day. Employees were helpful at Union Square at time of visit.My reservation said to pick up my car at Fisherman's Wharf but the car wasn't there so I had to go to Union Square to pick it up, but the employee at Fisherman's Wharf told me I had to call customer service myself and let them know I was coming. Then at Union Square, the employees had a difficult - lengthy - time figuring out how to switch everything for me to rent the car. Overall it took 2 hours to rent this car when most of the time was spent waiting. Not employees fault, the system seems to be partially broken.

1.9 HorribleAug 30 2021
Not use Kayak or Hertz. Because I booked a car the same day I needed it, Hertz did not have any vehicles available for me - nor would they rent to me the price I booked. Hertz claims that third-party bookers do not have access to the local inventories, and that it was my responsibility to call Hertz directly and confirm the online booking. Total BS. Third-party hotel bookers have access to local inventories without problem. There is nothing that Hertz couldn't do on same day bookings that they don't do for advance bookings or bookings done 24 hours beforehand. I walked out angry 😡 and 😠 and four blocks to Enterprise, who not only had cars in stock but offered me a three day rental for less that the SVU Hertz was trying to pawn off on me. Shame on Hertz and Kayak. If you can't act jointly like a professional company, then Hertz should not be included on Kayak.

--instruction manual should be IN the car --remind the "pick-up" attendants to look at the person they are assisting in the moment --have "drop-off" office open on WEEKENDS. It's not fair to charge 2 extra days when the renter is late returning on a Friday AFTER 5:30 !!!

The team in San Rafael was very accommodating getting me into a great car last minute when Enterprise could not honor my reservation. They were sure to give me my options with limited inventory so that I could make the right decision for my one way trip. Great experience all around.

They didn't have a small-sized car that I originally requested, and first gave me a large Ford sedan that was very loud (the moment you turn it on, it makes a VROOM noise without accelerating), and when I requested a different car they said they only had a large SUV, so I ended up taking that which was very uncomfortable to drive.

Great longer-term rentalNeed a large vehicle for a month. Most affordable options were off-brand rental agencies with very old (10+ years) vehicles. Avis offered almost new vehicles at the most affordable prices if you rented by the monthCat wasn’t washed at pick-up but interior was clean.

The car was nice and very clean, and I appreciated being able to get a car easily during the pandemic.I booked a drop-off location that was closed at the time that I had selected when I started the rental, and was told that extending the rental until the next day would cost me $150, which is about 8x what I had paid for the first day. I was told I would also have to pay $150 if I was late dropping the car off at an alternate location, which was much further away. I ended up making the drop-off time and avoided the charges, but was frustrated by being threatened with penalties for a situation that wasn’t my fault and I should have been alerted of when I booked the car, or when I picked it up.

I WOULD HAVE liked to actually get the van I booked and the price I booked it.That I could actually get the van I booked. I was on a cruise ship that was delayed because a passenger was critically ill. We had to return to Honolulu so the Patient could get the care needed. This along with a storm at sea made as a few hours late. I called on Tuesday morning to confirm our van would still be waiting and was told that the reservation had been canceled. It took an exorbitant amount of time to find out why and then to find that there were no more vans available, at all. This was even true of Budget’s sister agency, Avis. I ended up having to book a larger van through Enterprise for 7.5 times the amount of your quote for the minivan. Needless to say I am not happy with the outcome. I will think twice before using your service again.

Hidden charges!NothingReserved a SUV but when I arrived I was told they didn’t have any and I had to pay extra $50+ to get an upgrade, so I ended up drove away with a sedan. Also you had to be really careful now when you book a rental because there could be some hidden charges! I thought filling gas used to be an option (either you pay for a full tank upfront or filling up yourself upon returning your rental), but now they do t even give you that option because “your rate doesn’t give you the option” as I was told! No more Budget for me for sure!

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Mill Valley car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Mill Valley.
