Vehicles Available

Sixt at Edinburgh have quite a large selection of vehicles which should suit all your needs adequately, compact cars, standard cars, mini buses and so much more. Some of their range includes the Mazda 6, Hyundai I range, Peugeot 5008 and tons more. As mentioned they also have a mini buses which range from 8 seats to 17 but these go really fast during certain times of the year so ensure that you book with us so we can guarantee you one.

Card Types Accepted

At Edinburgh airport Sixt accept a big range of cards including all major credit cards and also some debit cards. I say some debit cards because unfortunately if the numbers on your debit card aren’t embossed then they will not accept your card they also wont accept it if it is a Maestro, Electron, Solo or Switch.


Paying with a debit card will prompt Sixt to freeze £250 on your card, it never actually gets taken off your card it’s just a frozen asset in order to pay for any damages or anything they are unhappy with after you return the rented vehicle.


There is a £1000 excess for all cars across the Sixt range. Don’t fear however it can be reduced to £500 or even down to £0 by paying an excess fee. If you pay 4/p day it reduces down to £500, but it you opt to pay £12/p day it reduces down to 0.

Young Driver Car Hire

At Edinburgh Airport Sixt offer cars to those who are ages 21 at an additional fee of up to £30/p month, the age where Sixt no longer require you to pay the additional young driver fee is when you are over 23, which is still a very young age in terms of car hire it is usually 25.
They also have a maximum age at Sixt hidden in their terms and conditions which is the age of 75 meaning you cant hire if you are over their guideline age. We can arrange your car hire however if you are over 75 but you must go to another supplier rather than Sixt. Please click here for more information.

Sixt at Edinburgh airport allow you to hire a vehicle at one location and drop it off at another within any UK location however this can come at an additional cost as it at the supplier’s inconvenience. This has to be requested and confirmed at the branch.Please click here for more information.
