Ease of getting and dropping off the car, very friendly and helpful staff
Continuous attempts to upgrade the car and then the extra charges for reducing the excess. Just charge a price with a reasonable excess. Too many companies advertise a cheap rental price and then add extra costs for this service and that, just charge a price that includes everything.

Pickup and return personel was really professionel and super.
AnitaDecember 22, 2017
New Cars Very clean Price
No map of Madeira in the car
November 22, 2017
Car as expected, in good condition. I liked the explanation at the counter on the insurance conditions.
They offered at counter to upgrade to a car which was more than twice as much as my original booking. Pick up location of the car was tricky to find.

RichardSeptember 11, 2017
Approach and friendliness of your staff when returning the car.
Having to wait over an hour booking In to collect the car. 4 staff on only 3 dealing with clients
August 30, 2017
Staff friendly and very helpful, no-nonsense process at pick-up and drop-off
August 29, 2017
Good clean car.
Once again car hire firms find any excuse to charge for wear and tear to charge more at the end of hire.
EriksAugust 20, 2017
Representative recommended to buy an upgrade compared to our original reservation. Given ups and downs of the Madeira reliefs and need for more horsepower it was useful suggestion.
Stil Audi A1 with 1 liter engine was not entirely enough.
August 6, 2017
Very polite staff
July 22, 2017

TitiaJuly 17, 2017

It was a VW Beetle not a mini cabriolet.
April 16, 2017
Really friendly staff who were very welcoming. High standard of car.
Trying to find the car park on the way pack! Says more about me than the company!!
IanApril 4, 2017
Interior was spotless
Exterior of car was filthy as it has been standing for a week or so in dust and rain. However, all the other vehicles in the car park were pristine!
JanetApril 4, 2017
Staff and really impressed with the car
Finding sixt rental returns at airport better signage needed
February 21, 2017
The Sixt staff appearance and politeness
The problem finding the site for the return of the car
February 10, 2017
Car was an underpowered Renault Clio rather than the VW Polo that I booked
DavidJanuary 24, 2017
The green jacket!!! The friendliness of the staff The car
They wouldn't let me keep the green jacket!! Haha!!!
January 5, 2017
Queuing and time taken to pick up the car considering pre-booked and we had all the paperwork and prepaid. Not a good welcome to Madeira!!! Fortunately we were near the front of the queue - but I think there were a lot of unhappy people behind us who must have been waiting for hours to pick up their car!!!
December 11, 2016
Before pick up staff added some scratches on document and one damage was on preprinted condition report. Added trust.
TomásJune 4, 2016
Great staff with availability to change the drop-off location and time of delivery to what was more convenient to me
February 12, 2016
Car was new, probably one of the best we've rented from Funchal and we've rented a few...
No one at the point of actual pick up or drop off, all done from the reception desk in the arrivals hall which meant messing about going from car park to desk etc and having to have an extended waiting period when returning the car.

VadimJuly 9, 2015
I would prefer to have the exact contact phone and e-mail of the desk to agree some additional details.
July 8, 2015
Behaviour of a staff member!!!
June 29, 2015
Car engine was a little weak for Madeira steep roads - you should show engine power during booking
DeclanJune 16, 2015
On site at airport
car was high mileage with poor third gear, did not like hills. This was a problem in a country of hills.
May 19, 2015
Easy pick up. Relaxed & helpful staff. Good location
May 17, 2015
It would have been nicer if there had been a good road map in the car
neilMay 7, 2015
The speed and efficiency of picking up and returning car
AlexanderApril 12, 2015
No problems. Good wee car. Automatic - managed the hills well. Returning the petrol level just as we found it.
Car was a bit scratched and dented on the outside but clean and well serviced so no big deal.
SamMarch 10, 2015
Very friendly and helpful staff.
4 year old beaten up vehicle.
RoyFebruary 26, 2015
Car was good
Too many scratches on the vehicle and some features not working well. Ignition switch suspect, Airconm not working, brakes questionable.
GeoffreyOctober 16, 2014
The ease of locating the desk in the airport.
Having to return to the airport the next day to pick up the car I had ordered,having been allocated a smaller car which was not spacious enough for four people and their luggage.
VitalyOctober 16, 2014
We were provided a very old, small and totally scratched car that for driving on the island was an advantage. It's probably impossible to drive on Madeira and not to bump into something, although we succeeded. With such a car you really feel like a local.
Why smoking in the cars is not regulated somehow? The car had a bad smell of smoke that didn't vanished during the entire trip.
September 10, 2014
staff were very helpful and patient. no hidden costs or surprises.
MariuszSeptember 4, 2014
Helpfulness and kindness of staff. Condition and equipment of the car. Easy and quick collecting and droping off.
WilliamSeptember 1, 2014
The car was well powered for the terrain. I ad the car for a whole month and enjoyed diving it all the time.
