Good city location and the staff was friendly and helpful. They changed the drop off fee to 150 Euros and took off the GPS charge. They tried to make the rental right but they could not do anything about the "upgraded car" and agreed that the VW Golf was not an SUV category.They were fine it was the left over dissatisfaction with Avis in Prague.

Relatively quick pick up and return, clean.Upon return, the attendant indicated damage on the front allow wheel rim. I drove from rental car parking spot to another parking spot 5 hours away. Did not have an opportunity to rub rim against a curb to inflict damage. Damage seemed to be old, but attendant said it was not on the initial inspection. I can't take 30 minutes to inspect cars for minor wear and tear. Waiting on Buchbinder final assessment for damages.

Clean car.As I was travelling with lots of luggages, it would've been nice to be able to park at the airport and not at some nearby hotel. I had push and pull 5 suitcases to get to the car and then the same thing upon return. The road where one can walk to the car with the suitcases is not wheelchair friendly so I couldnmt even use the airport cart to ease the process. When asked the staff for help, either to allow me to leave at least some of the suitcases in their office while I go to pick up the car, it was rejected. When asked I could use one the Hertz parking spots outside the terminal, I was told that they cannot ñromise that as they don't know what will be free when...afterall, arenmt they supposed to know when their cars leave and depart to be able to calculate such things?? The staff was really unhelpful afterall.

We booked a car in the city center in Budapest, but when we arrived the office was still being set up and there was a “coming soon” sign in the window. There was another guy there who was also supposed to get a rental car so we shared a taxi to the airport. The people at the airport said it was a glitch that allowed us to book from that location since it’s not open yet. They made us wait for about 45 minutes, forced me to negotiate a lower price for our troubles and then told us we could drop it off at the city center location and he would email me instructions. So at the end of the weekend I still hadn’t received any instructions so we called and they said there’s a garage there, it’s super easy and then drop the keys in the drop box. Well, it was not easy. There were multiple garages and no enterprise signs anywhere. We called again and they sent us a map. We pulled into a garage and parked in a random spot. Then went to the new office and there was no drop box for the keys as they said there would be. The door was open and a guy came out and told us to go to the office next door. We went to that office and the guys wouldn’t take our keys so we went back and just gave them to the guy in the enterprise office bc we were so annoyed with the whole process. Basically make sure this location is fully functional before you book a car there.

8.8 Excellent23 Jul 2019
Staff was attentive and managed to upsell me...but that was just fine because it was for a bigger vehicle and we were moving, so actually it was a win-win. I managed to fit about 11 bags in the car and avoided multiple taxi trips and a bag storage fees.The experience was pretty painless, could be a bit faster. Also, I think the price of the cars in town (Budapest) is pretty high. Having said that it was a last minute rental and more than made up for the higher cost

Quick pick-up and drop-offI liked that the car was ready for pick-up, and that the agent reviewed the paperwork with me. When I dropped off the car, the agent came to where I was, reviewed the condition of the car, and sent me on my way within a matter of minutes.
10.0 Excellent5 Aug 2018
Everything was top class. The car was brand new and perfect for our needs. It was very fuel efficient too. The pickup up dropoff was very convenient and the staff at the counter were informative professional and courteous. And I believe I got a great deal booking last minute in peak summer through Kayak.Things I didn't like was that the Bluetooth was not working properly. I wanted to connect the Google maps on my mobile and to make calls but it seems that the car rental company doesn't allow this function. Also I took 3rd party insurance as Sixth sells insurance very expensive and they took €1800 as deposit for not taking insurance from them. They need to work out a better deal for insurance and make it convenient for customers.

Scratch under the bumperTake photos of car inside and out before you leave. We were charged $200 for a tiny scratch under the car. Also watch for the 700 mile limit that Sixt does. If you’re traveling, the miles rack up. Hidden charges throughout. The men working were harsh.

Sixt didn’t recognise booking via KayakI booked a ford transit and was informed at the very last minute that it was not ford transit but a galaxy. However, the booking done via Kayak clearly states Ford Transit and I was then told to rebook and was charged a much higher rate.Was charged exorbitant fees, GPS doesn’t work, poor customer service from both Kayak and Sixt. I got ripped off, the entire booking is more expensive than my return flight ticket to the Far East.

9.2 Excellent22 Jun 2017
Very impressedI had the "ford focus" class reserved but was pleasantly surprised by a Renault fluence 6 speed manual diesel. They also had a highway decal included. The car was a little no frills but super clean and great trunk space and rear seat for rear facing baby seat. Would rent from them again.They really nitpick every scratch to do your own pre-inspection.

Only thing that is worth mentioning is the pick up and drop off was okayLots of hidden charges. Excess was 800 as stated by all info I received however when I reached the desk it was 1000 so I had to take out the full insurance which cost me an additional 180 euro.

I brought back the car in Hertz parking lot they charge me 143 for a damage “ they say “ was there, I have a witness I wasn’t there on time when parking, but they seem ignorant to understand it , maybe it’s a way how they make extra money after they give a rate , beware. I hope you all enjoy Hungary look for something else ,

Top tips for hiring a car in Budapest

  • It is well worth considering renting a car during your time in Budapest, especially if you are a family traveling together. While for the most part public transportation is widely available, at times it can be laborious and time consuming to use. This is particularly the case if you would like to visit the many tourist destinations in the city’s neighboring areas. For instance, Esztergom is the former capital of Hungary and is just 60 km away from Budapest. There is also the Gödöllő Palace, which is a mere 30 km from the city.
  • Is step one of your vacation in Hungary picking up the rental car? For travelers with flights landing at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, the rental car desks are conveniently located in the main hall of the airport.
  • In Budapest there are strictly no right turns on red at intersections. The only time this does not apply is when there is a separate green turn signal indicating that you may turn. Drivers caught turning right on red risk fines and there is no leeway given to travelers who claim to not know that this was a rule.
  • Rush hour traffic in Budapest, like many capital cities, can be rough at times. Drivers can expect the morning rush hour to start around 7:00 a.m. and last until 9:30 a.m., while in the afternoon the traffic picks up again at around 4:00 p.m. and cools down at about 7:00 p.m. The central business district is one of the worst-hit areas, particularly in the evening, so travelers are advised to avoid it at those times if they can.
