Update: 1 week after returning the car, sixt got in touch with me to settle the damage fee issue.
The fee was completely waived when it was pointed out that 1091 its too much for a small scratch on alloy.
Sixt waived all damage charges due to this.
Must say this is a very fair approach, unlike many other companies who you need to fight with to get the damage fee to a reasonable amount without ripoff.
Overall I am satisfied with Sixt and how they handled this problem.
Be very careful. I collected car at 11pm in darkness and rain. I was unable to inspect for damages on collection.
When I returned the car, it was claimed there was a scratch on one of the alloys, which was caused by me.
A scratch on an alloy is no big deal and fairly cheap to fix if required.
SIXT sent me an invoice for 1091 euro to fix the scratch on the alloy, what a joke ahahaaha
You can buy a whole new set of alloys for this money.
Lucky inhale excess insurance who will most likely cover this, however be aware that you will be paying your full excess for pretty much a tiny little scratch on a wheel or the car.
AVOI THIS COMPANY LIKE PLAGUE
Or take out full insurance with them and pay double your rent price which was quoted initially.
Good luck sixt, you just lost a platinum card customer due to this carry on.
