beware of Sixt car rental Salta airport

First they do not have an office in Salta airport. Someguy delivers the car in the airport and takes an imprint of your credit card in his private vehicle.

Second, we were charged 930 Argentinian Peso 11 days after car return safely and satisfactorily to sixt agent at Buenos Aires without anybody letting us know why... They do not answer e-mails as well as their international company Sixt customer service. They do not send any bill/relevant document to this regard.

The ignorance of customer service is outstanding.

Choose another alternative.

I don't think I've ever seen a post about sixtcar rental before, it's a shame you didn't get info here before your trip about rental cars.

This approach to "customer service", posting private details like this in a public forum, is a HUGE privacy violation in addition to completely poor customer service and absolutely rude.

You should be ashamed. You should also remove this post and and contact the customer in private and apologize. You're attempt to vindicate yourself by posting this claim just makes you look even worse.

This is something people renting cars need to be aware of - the speeding tickets in Catamarca and Tucuman are especially notorious. You also have police checkpoint stops where they are liable to shake you down if they think you have US$ - they will say they are going to impound the car for the night etc etc. With the polizia - best to speak absolutely no spanish. In Jujuy and Salta provinces they arent as bad apart from after dark. Not to scare - just so people are ready for the possibility.
