I looked around for the best deal and Sixt had the best offers going. So I locked in. It was my first time in SJC so had to figure my way to the car rentals. Which is easy - basically you get out of terminal after collecting luggage and take the shuttle.
Easy check in and I did not opt for ldw on a whim and obviously, the fear of getting cheated kicked in later :)
I had opted for a compact and got upped to a sedan, Hyundai. It had car play so no need for Garmin. It had blind spot monitor, backup cam. Nice clean car.
The previous renter was a smoker and that was terrible! the smell drove me nuts but it went away in a days time.
The customer service was great, the return was super easy with no extra charges.
I decided to return the car a day earlier. I was charged the full amount but I will have that sorted.
