Rented a car and went to Wilson's Prom and Great Ocean Road. The staff there are extremely friendly. Their prices and policies are also very reasonable. I was skeptical at first after reading reviews of other SIXT rentals, but I couldn't have been happier with their service.

I've always been wary of car rentals but took the plunge with Sixt South Melbourne this time round, given the raving reviews in Google. I have to say, no regrets. Everything from the booking to the collection to the vehicle and finally the return process, exceeded my expectations and it was a wonderful experience not only renting the car, but driving it as well. Staff was awesome in explaining clearly the terms and conditions to us, and they were friendly and welcoming throughout the entire process. The location was quiet, and was a good place to exit to the highway, as compared to the busy city centre. The car provided, while it had a minor dent at the back, was otherwise in impeccable condition. Car was washed, interior wiped down and had a nice smell too. Almost convinced it was a brand new car if not for the dent. Drive was great and the car provided gave us no issues at all. The return process was also a great one, with after hours return, allowing us ample time to travel back without rushing. Overall, amazing experience, couldn't ask for more. Will definitely go back again to rent with Sixt South Melbourne if I return for a trip.

Simply the best quality, service and value at the SIXT South Melbourne Depot! Great price, clean, and as-new vehicle. Today was my 5th or 6th rental and I have always found the management team and every staff member to be friendly, professional and totally customer focused. They have easily earned my five-star review from booking, to pick-up and drop-off, to prompt and efficient accounts. I've never felt ripped off by this group and I believe I've received the best deal, sometimes with extras thrown in at no charge. Today, they offered me straps to help tie down the load I was carrying - a heavy, free-standing steel bath. Thanks and congratulations on your 5-star excellence!
