Cons:

When checking the vehicle for dents and scratches I preferred if a agent would do a walk around with the person renting the car but they didn’t.

We were disappointed in the extra charge for an early drop off. Also the shuttle to the pick-up took a long time coming. Also I was not pleased with the policy that they have for dealing with tolls. They have a surcharge on top of the toll charge. Unimpressed.

The staff without exception were super friendly and helpful, pickup was easy and efficient and drop-off was even better. The rates were also better than all the competitors for our 5 day trip. The car was a Mitsubishi ASX which is a nice size but just OK in terms of drivability, comfort and additional gadgets but it was clean and with plenty of fuel when we picked it up. We would choose Apex again.

Liked the location, disgruntled at the drop off location when the sign pointed to the garage door that did not open when the car approached. No instruction was given about needing to contact the office on arrival to obtain entry to the parking garage.

Dec 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Great car except for seat belt problem and fact that Hertz forgot to install car seat that we requested in writing and verbally

Cons:

So we had to return to pick-up location for car seat. Then when we removed car seat to adjust straps for our four year old we could not get he seat belt to ratchet and lock properly to secure car seat, so we had to return to pick-up location a second time(!) for a service person to help with their tricks for getting this seatbelt to work! Basically it cost us two full hours before leaving on a busy holiday weekend.

Aug 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The pickup/dropoff went well, especially the help when we returned the car. Car was very comfortable, clean, drove well, and we had no problems.

Cons:

When we picked up the car, I asked for a map - especially of how to get to the motorway in Sydney. Was told they didn't have any maps. We used our cell gps, but when you go through tunnels service gets dropped (duh) making it a bit stressful about what turn might be next. I was surprised (frustrated) that even a city map was not available in paper form (come on, Hertz!). Next problem was discovered when we got home and I was paying my credit card bills. When my reservation was made, Hertz charged my credit card one day rental costs. But the system never reflected this when renting or returning the car, so I was charged the full amount when dropped off. This is NOT the fault of the return agent, but the Hertz system. I have since sent an email to Hertz and 2 days later still no reply. If this gets resolved, then my rating might go up - but if it takes more work on my part to get resolved, then rating may actually go down. Also, I thought the charge to drop off at a different city was a bit steep - especially since it seemed like more than twice the actual rental cost.

Pros:

Prompt service

Cons:

We paid for an SUV, and when we got to pick-up there were none left. We were given a golden Astra saloon car, which is not what I wanted and not what I paid for. The service assistant told me that as we had already paid, there was nothing he can do - which is unreasonable. He then said we could bring the car back half full, as compensation - when we dropped the car off there was no record of this and we were told we would be charged for the lack of fuel. I am unsatisfied with the whole experience of your company.

6.0 Okay

Jan 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The class of vehicle i booked was not available, yet I was charged the full amount BEFORE being informed that the full size SUV was not available. When I wanted to compare other options and cost, I was told to wait (with a 1 year old baby, after a 14 he flight) and ignored for an hour. Staff was short, rude and not interested in providing information. When I offered to return the nexr day to collect the class of vehicle I booked, that was also declined. I eventually got a smaller car, that forced me to change my family holiday plans, required the use of a second vehicle for 5 days.

Cons:

I should've received the car I booked, or provided with alternatives. I use Thrifty aften (4 times a year, for about 3 months in total) but will reconsider my options in future

Great pick up and drop off options. Clean car. Great Staff. Very friendly.

Cons:

I did not like the fact that Kayak did not send reservation confirmation to Thrifty, they still honored it but they had to hustle getting me a car at the pick up location. I also did not like the website info for Drop off. I had to find out on drop off date that Thrifty had a Domestic and International Drop off location with COMPLETELY different procedures.

Booked a “mystery compact car” and they tried to give me an 8x seater people mover. Then charged me an additional fee to actually get a compact car Wrong instructions on airport collection came through in the email vs on the phone as I had to call up 3x. Staff on the phone were abrupt and rude Staff at counter said it wasn’t their problem the car had been advertised as “compact” when it wasn’t Driver who collected us from airport couldn’t lift bags or help in any way Just wouldn’t recommend, scam. Spend more money, at a known hire company at the airport, much easier and you actually know what you’re getting.

Great car, abit pricey to add on another day but other than that it was awesome, from customer service through to phone contact changing drop off location an hour before drop off with no extra charge. Our rental was meant to go back Saturday 3pm but I wasn't able to take it back at that time, so I asked if I could take it back today and they said yes if I drop it off before 11am they won't charge me. I would highly recommend SIXT car rentals to everyone 👍👍👍👍

The price was reasonable. I don't believe that people travelling long distances should be given an EV, 9hr trip turned into 20hr trip, Cars do not hold charge long enough, from Sydney to Melbourne had to re-charge car 9 times and takes 1 hour to charge

Jun 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

At the Sydney drop off they tried to charge me for previous damage. They wouldn't resolve it, so I cancelled the second rental in Cairns with them. I took video when I picked up and dropped off the car , and I told them I had the video. So far they haven't tried billing me for the damage. I recommend you us a more reputable company.

6.0 Okay

Jan 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Convenient pickup location near arrivals Friendly and helpful staff Dropoff was quick and easy once we had descended into the depths of the underground car park (Pullman Hotel in central Sydney) Car was clean and mobile - although small even after our upgrade

Cons:

Very slow pickup - took over half an hour to complete paperwork although there was no queue. For us, it was a big comparison with Launceston (Tasmania) Europcar where we had rented the week before and where pickup was almost instantaneous (to be fair, Launceston is a much smaller airport). Price increased more than expected over original booking - 30% (of total car price) extra charge was applied for picking up at Sydney airport.

8.0 Very Good

Pros:

The Mitsubishi AX was good for accommodating 5 passengers in comfort. Though it struggles with fair luggage for 5.

Cons:

No satnav/gps. And it was a little underpowered.

Cons:

Vehicle provided was not the vehicle reserved. We reserved a Ford Transit but what we got was a Kia Carnival which although was “similar” it did not provide the same amount of baggage space. 6 adults with 6 full size bags we were packed in like sardines. Interior was stained, brakes need attention

Car smelled of cigarette. I was told that there was airport transfer to the car park, but there wasn't, so I had to pay 2x Uber of about $30 each out of my own pocket. I paid $800 bond deposit that should have been refunded within two weeks of car return, it is now over three weeks and I'm still waiting, with no help from QEEQ and no response from the car supplier.

Just be clear, Simba is not fully blamed but QEEQ is definitely the worst. Horrible customer service and definitely no return business for sure. Amazingly embarrassing and waste of my time.

Car hire insurance in Sydney

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Sydney car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Sydney.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Sydney car hire.

Top tips for hiring a car in Sydney

  • Excited to rent a car while you vacation in Sydney? If you are landing at Sydney Airport and are coming from abroad, then you will find the hire car desks in Terminal 1’s Arrival Hall. If you are arriving on a domestic flight, the hire car desks can be found in the Arrival Hall for Terminals 2 and 3.
  • As a tourist in Sydney, there’s no reason to be stuck relying on public transportation, if you rent a car the whole region becomes your oyster. For instance, Manly Beach, Blue Mountains National Park, and Royal National Park are just some of the famed locales surrounding Sydney that are easily accessible by car.
  • Travelers new to Australia should watch out for Transit Lanes. Transit Lanes, often designated as T2 or T3, are Australia’s equivalent to a carpool lane, meaning that you must have either 2 or 3 people in your car to use the lane. Transit Lanes are mostly seen on highways, and families should be sure to take advantage of them.
  • Sydney’s morning rush hour normally ranges from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. while the evening rush hour can start as early as 2:30 p.m. and will often last all the way till 7:00 p.m. The extended evening rush hour is due in part to the fact that many of Sydney’s roads are running at capacity.
