Never use Sixt

Jump to last reply

Reserved BMW X1 (or equivalents) in Munich, Germany 6weeks in advance and they gave me VW Multivan (a huge 8 seater Diesel engine) which second driver (my wife, much shorter than I) could barely operate its brake pedal. They insisted it is eqivalent of BMW X1 and that was the only car available that day and the clock was ticking. We had no choice because we had to move on to Italy that day. We requested Sixt to find a real equivalent on the way but they did not. I ended up with driving this big van with 6 vacant seats only by myself 2,200 km for 2 weeks around Alps.
I was ignorant, did not buy 8.7 euro Vignette (highway toll sticker) for Austria, and got 120 euro penalty. Sixt knew I was driving down to Italy via highway in Austria. A small piece of advice or warning would not hurt anything, would it?
Sixt easily hurt our 2 week vacation in Europe.
