I rented from a Munich city Sixt location, reserved an X4. Given the minimal inventory at the location they didnt have my rented class on arrival so I was upgraded to an X5 xdrive30d M sport. Success, amazing car for driving through the mountains. I ended up returning to Munich airport on the back end as a one way rental (very minor charge). Used Chase Reserve card for CDW insurance. One note is the return at MUC is a semi cluster since all rentals are returned at the same exact spot. Try to get a receipt on the spot, I didnt and was worried for a day or so they were gonna pull a fast one... turned out fine. Good luck.

Good day all!

I am looking to rent from MUC in December and return to Munich HB in city centre. I was wondering about vehicle classes. This is the first time I have ever used Sixt.

I reserved SDMR which was "Mercedes-Benz CLA" or similar. Does anybody have any recent examples of what they actually got?

I just don't want to show up and be told "here sir, you can have this lovely Ford Fiesta" I do not need anything bigger - just something nice like an Audi, BMW, or Mercedes (ya know, since I am in Germany!)

Thanks!

I would like to hear the comments for Sixt MUC too.
I booked a FWMR + diesel option in Oct, I hope I could get a BMW 3 with manual gearbox

Pickled up at Munich HB 3 weeks ago. Save me hundreds of dollars, versus the airport. The actual pick up is about 3 blocks from office.

I'm not sure how this experience is relevant to this thread ... buy my 2 cents are as follows:

It depends on a few factors. HB office also charges a premium and if you are arriving at MUC you also need to pay something to get to city center.

Also - it depends on where you are going after you leave the airport. It may be more convenient for you to leave from the MUC area instead of city center.

Rental car companies always reserve an amount which increases by the class/value of the car rented. All in their T&Cs
