Best places to visit in Poland

  • Warsaw: two outstanding sightseeing landmarks in Warsaw are the Wilanów Palace and the Palace of Culture & Science. The Royal Castle is also an intriguing place, with its period furniture. Then you can pay respects at the Warsaw Rising Museum, commemorating the events during WWII.  Łazienki Park is an expansive stretch of wooded glades through which peacocks roam.  
  • Kraków: the main attraction at Kraków is Wieliczka Salt Mine. This underground labyrinth dates back to the 18th century. Inside is all manner of statues and monuments hewn from salt. Use your hire car to drive the roughly 8.5 miles to get there. In the city, take time for the Old Town’s Main Market Square, and the Jewish Quarter, where you’ll find the Old Synagogue, built in the 15th century.  
  • Łódź: offers more important WWII tourist sites, like Radegast Station. There’s also the City Museum of Łódź, and children will love the Experymentarium, an enthralling interactive science emporium. You can also see the Rubinstein Mural that pays tribute to the city’s most famous pianist, the great Arthur Rubinstein.  



Nice staff. Easy process to pick up cad. Some extra charges for insurance and unlimited km. Expensive but a really nice upgrade car and friendly staff. 3.5, but I’m rounding up.

Very quick and competent handling, friendly and motivated staff, very good customer experience. Thanks to the team. I will be back at Sixt in Poznan soon for a new car location.

Great service, very helpful team!

Wonderful experience! Very lucky to get a car from Sixt, given another provider cancelled my car rental last minute subject to a return flight delay. Pawel from Sixt was very helpful and professional. Also, stayed after closing time to help me after being turned down by the other car dealer. Having rented cars from many places before, I found Sixt to be the most solid! I have been offered a brand new shiny Nissan Kuga with 6k on a clock. No problems with a car return - dropped keys in a box just before my flight. I made sure to fill the tank, so as expected didn't have to pay any extra cost. P.S. Pawel offered me his phone charger as well (hope you found it in a box together with the car keys and registration documents).

I received great service from Mateusz. I showed up earlier than expected, and he helped me with ensuring my reservation was correct with the right insurance package. He warned me of the new traffic laws that came into effect recently also. I have always been satisfied with Sixt. They have good, clean cars and great service.

I've been renting cars for a while now and from numerous companies out there, with that said I can state that I find Sixt to be the best company so far, consistently delivering great service with a word-class staff and great options of cars with an extra touch of a great clean smell in the car.

Dennis S.

Everything worked out perfect. Nice and helpful staff, easy pickup and return, nice car.

After having tried worldwide car rental services for many years, I can definitely say that Sixt is among the best you can find! Wroclaw airport booth is indeed one of their best, professional and relaxed staff together with a pleasing upgrade, what can you ask more? Suggested!

I see a lot of people complaining about the huge bill for scratches , I would say it is definitely avoidable. When we were renting the car, we asked for the Insurance to cover any damage, so we didn’t need to worry about anything , I strongly advise everyone to have it . If you think it’s expensive, you shouldn’t rent a car just take public transport, or rent from car share companies. The insurance were more expensive than the car rental fee , but we knew about it , they explained everything. Don’t expect everything to be “CHEAP and good ) , have some sense.


Ps : Im not getting paid by this , just telling you that renting car from big companies is not always that bad

I rented a car for business, great service


I actually had a good rental experience with this company.

Of course I was very worried because of all the bad reviews on Google.


My main reason for booking with Sixt, despite the reviews, was because I needed to take the car to Ostrava, 25 km into neighboring Czech Republic. ALL other rental companies charge €25-60 for crossing borders, but it was included in Sixt.



I booked directly on the Sixt website as I got a better deal than going through any price comparison sites like RyanAir, Booking.com and Wizz.



Because of all the bad reviews and reports about made up damages, I bought their own CDW for an extra €16/day. I also bought an extra full coverage car rental insurance on the internet that covered everything and also the things not included by Sixt's CDW.



The car was nice and fresh with some 15 000 km on the meter, although not the Citroen C-4 as ordered but a Toyota Avensis Hybrid. It felt a bit weak to keep up with the 140 km/h speed limit on Polish high ways.



Before leaving and returning, I parked the car in a well-lighted area of the parking garage to take pictures/videos of any existing damages. Fortunately I never needed the photos/videos. Bring a clean micro fiber cloth to remove any dirt and a flashlight (use the torch on another phone) might come in handy.



Don't forget to return the vehicle's registration documents and the NEW garage ticket you get when entering the garage upon returning the car.



There is an Orlen petrol station just 500 m from the parking house. it can be a bit confusing how enter the gas station as you have to make a full circle and go back the way you came from in the roundabout. I made sure to fill the tank completely by filling some extra after the gas pump auto stops. So for me a good experience.

Kacper S.

Extremely helpful! I made a few errors in the booking process but Paweł at the service desk was very accomadating and ensured we were all set. Amazing service!

This is the second time I used Sixt, once in Warsaw and the second time in Rzeszow airport. Compared to Warsaw, I highly recommend Sixt in Jasionka because their staff is professional and knowledgeable. Folks that work there took the time to explain every detail of the contract and happily answered any questions I had at the time.

Ryan D.

Life saver, you do what you could do to help passengers out! She was the only one willing to say yes. I did not get your agent’s name but whoever was working Wednesday afternoon, she deserves a raise and a promotion!

Miłosz B.

Very friendly, helpful and professional service

Andrew K.

Except a little confusion around a booked car (model/type) and its availability everything was perfect.

Even this confusion was resolved professionally by the company representatives.


Worth to mention that it was not an easy task, since due to a bad booking experience with another rental company, I had only one day to arrange everything.

But, Sixt did a good job and when we arrived to the airport, it takes a moment and we were ready to go on a brand new VW Tiguan!

Car return also was pretty easy and comfortable.


Thanks Sixt for a good service!

Dave N.

Great staff and vehicles. If you come at a right time and they have luxury cars available you can get a tremendous upgrade deal.

Patrick Y.

They ALWAYS take amazing care of my rental needs.
