Top service from First Car Rental Sixt

24 Apr 2009. We got the best service ever from a car rental company from First Car Rental Sixt at Johannesburg's O.R. Tambo International Airport. They saw us out to the vehicle and packed our bags into our rental car, all done with a friendly attitude (and if you think we always write compliments look at this article we wrote on how Avis endangers babies!). The name of the hero who gave us this great service is William (First Car Rental Sixt in Johannesburg - please look after William who works at your Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International branch - a guy who gives this level of service is like gold to an organisation).

Rental car was a Mazda 3

For some bizarre reason it's much cheaper to fly from Cape Town to Johannesburg and rent a car and drive it to Nelspruit, than it is to fly from Cape Town to Nelspruit. We usually go for the cheapest car on offer, but since we were going to be driving all the way from Johannesburg to Nelspruit, we decided to go a notch higher and hired a Mazda 3. I'm used to driving a Toyota Corolla and Toyota Yaris, and the Mazda 3 is much more powerful - driving at 120km/h in the Mada 3 feels like 80km/h in the Toyotas.

Unlimited kms

We go for the cheapest car hire firm that offers us the specs we need - in this case we wanted unlimited mileage and a vehicle with air conditioning and a CD shuttle (so we could play music for the little one). First Car Rental Sixt are very good with unlimited mileage deals.

First Car Rental Sixt has moved

First Car Rental Sixt used to be on the south-west side of the car hire corridor at Johannesburg Airport. They've now moved to the opposite side of the corridor (slightly closer to the entrance, next to Thrifty Car Rental). Woodford Car Rental has taken First Car Rental Sixt's old spot.

Thrifty Car Rental & First Car Rental Sixt are now situated next to each other
