SIXT Car Rental WARNING at ​St.Marteen Airport !!

I would like to warn potential customers of SIXT rental; This is a very dishonest rent​al company​. When I gave ​back ​the car they showed me a small old ​scratch that was there ​before the rental. For this scratch I was charged $ 300.​ ​​Warning other customers ​might be charged for the same scratch. ​Extremely unprofessional and the manager at the rental company was extremely rude. This is a complete scam.

​SIXT Rent a car at ​Princess Juliana Int. Airport Airport Road: Airport Road 134, Sint Maarten​.​

I am not a fan of SIXT, but did you mark the scratch on your rental paperwork?

Always shot a movie of the car when picking it at the rental agency, slowly walk around it with your phone and pause 2 seconds on every dent you have. It takes less than 1 minute, I always proceed like this and never had an issue about an imaginary dent.

We normally take out pictures of our rental car. Even if the car rental has a good reputation, always taking precaution for your safety.

You know for next time and I would recommend you do rent from Dollar/Thrifty on your next arrival. They always take great care of us and also upon giving out of the vehicle they do take pictures as well. No shadiness and a very trustworthy company.

Wow - thanks for the heads up. Sorry that it happened to you. I am travelling in mid July and was planning to rent - will avoid SIXT like the plague.
