Sixt or Europcar

I live in Holland, so I can't speak German. I hope that you wil understand.

I would like to rent a car in Germany for one week. It has to be a SUV( Audi q7, bmw X5) . But the problem is that I don't know which company is better Sixt or Europcar? I looked in the forums and I have seen a lot of cars Europcar AND Sixt. Can anyone tell me which company is better to rent. On the website of Europcar I have seen that they have a mercedes s-klasse, audi a8 and SUV's.They have more selection of SUV's than Sixt. So I'm hesitating between Sixt and Europcar.?(I hope that somebody will help me.

You will get a different answer from nearly every user here. The truth is: both car hire firms (Sixt and Europcar) have their advantages. So i would recommend you to compare the rates you have to pay and to choose the hirer on this backround.
But if you like to drive BMW, Sixt will be the better choice. Otherwise, Europcar will be readily able to satisfy you with Audi. :202: :203:

by the way: i prefer Sixt, because I like BMW best ;)

As salex wrote, we can't simply say which one of these Rental Companys is the better one.

for my personal situation and my preferences, there is no better company then Sixt. but this is depending on various things.
I'm sure, if you like SUV's there are some interesting cars that you can get at Europcar. Mercedes ML, or Audi Q7 for example.
Sixt also has this cars. But they have much more BMW's than Europcar or every other company has. So if You like BMW - Sixt should be your choice.

i recommend to you, that you check the prices of both. you should choose that one that feels better for you.

Or simply go to your nearest Sixt / Europcar station and ask for a SUV.



In many cases it depends on the local station you choose, if you rent at an airport, it shouldnt be a problem to get a SUV. If you rent at a local station, you may visit them before to tell them what you would like to drive.



So I guess it also depends on the amount of money you want to spend, just tell us the town where you want to rent the car and I'm sure we will help you out to get the best solution for you.

First of all, being Dutch myself (even from the Zwolle Region), I would like to give you a warm welcome at this forum.

At Europcar, you will find the BMW X5, Mercedes ML, VW Touareg and the Jeep Grand Cherokee in the group "LFAR". The Audi Q7 and Mercedes Benz GL are grouped in "XFAR". So if you order LFAR, you could risk to end up with an SUV you do not like (as you excluded the VW and Jeep).

At Sixt, they have grouped the BMW X5 / X6, Mercedes Benz ML and Audi Q7 in "XFAR".

When talking about equipment levels, in this class, usually (not always) the cars from Sixt and Europcar are comperable. They all have a diesel engine, leather, satnav, ParkDistanceControl, automatic gearbox, xenon headlights, electric seats and probably even more things.
However, where would you like to rent the car? I would not only compare rates between Europcar and Sixt, but also if you can reach any station (in case you will travel from Holland).

And always keep in mind, you do not order a specific car, you can only order a group!

Good luck, let us know what you will decide and what car you got. ;)

I know that they have a limit. But it's not the first time for me. In December 2009 I rent a car at Sixt ( Essen Limbeckerplatz) in the category XFAR. The gave me a Volkswagen Touareg ( I preffered BMW x5), but it was really difficult to get the SUV. They said that they only had a Mercedes C-klasse. After a long talk they found a SUV in Dortmund.

I would like to rent 30 April till 7 Mai and I really want a BMW x5 or Audi Q7 :thumbsup: . CAn somebody recceomnd me a good station close to holland??

I am not sure about the quality of the station, but if you want to have a higher chance on a good car I'd suggest you try an airport station. They usually have a wider variety of cars available. From Holland, I'd suggest trying either Köln / Bonn Flughafen or Düsseldorf Flughafen. If you can find a cheap fare on the ICE (from Arnhem, you can take the train from Zwolle), you also should be able to get there without any big inconvenience.

VW Touareg is very rarely. Normally is it no problem to get an BMW X5. Does the station "Essen Limbeckerplatz" have a big parking place? Maybe choose a bigger station and write a remark in the reservation, that you will be glad about an BMW X5 :)

I wish you good luck to get a car and not a VW ;)

:thumbsup: everyone thank you for the reactions. I will go for :203: . I think I will send them a ''wishlist'' so that they know what kind of cars I prefer. I hope this time I get a BMW X5 or Audi Q7. Is the station of Sixt at the Dusseldorf Airport big?

IMHO Dusseldorf Airport is one of the biggest stations in the western region of Germany.
