Return management

Sixt Leasing also places great importance on providing transparency and fairness during vehicle returns on an international level, and therefore offers a returns process tailored to your specific needs. This ensures you receive a fair and cost-effective vehicle return, including an increased level of process security. When you return the vehicle, independent experts guarantee an objective valuation of your vehicle based on our international damage catalogue.

One of the greatest uncertainties in leasing is posed by the unpredictable costs upon return of the vehicle. Here at Sixt Leasing, we applied the principles of cost awareness, transparency, simplicity and fairness to develop two modules to enable worry-free vehicle returns.

Select the ideal return module to suit your needs:

FAirbag© Live

FAirbag© Live is the simple method of returning your vehicle. Your leasing vehicle is assessed wherever you like at the agreed time, whether it is at a Sixt Leasing station or your own location. A neutral inspector guarantees an objective assessment of your vehicle in your presence.

FAirbag© Professional

At the end of the contractual period, your vehicle is assessed in your presence directly at your own location or on the premises of a neutral inspection organisation (e.g. Dekra, TÜV). It is entirely up to you which inspection site you choose. Afterwards, you can conveniently return the vehicle to one of numerous Sixt Leasing stations dotted around Germany.

Your benefits from the FAirbag©returns modules at a glance:

  • 100% independent inspectors
  • Reduction of your administrative workload thanks to clearly defined processes
  • Objectiveness and fair assessment based on neutral valuations by the inspector
  • Cost benefits by considering alternative repair methods (e.g. smart repair)
  • Transparency of billing through application of the Sixt damage catalogue, drafted with TÜV Süd
  • Cost transparency thanks to a standardised solution for your entire fleet

FAirbag© Plus

The unpredictability of costs when returning vehicles is among the greatest uncertainties in the vehicle leasing business. We developed Sixt FAirbag© Plus – our own full-service module – to help you reduce this risk.

Sixt FAirbag© Plus delivers maximum predictability and security when it comes to return costs. You pay a simply monthly rate over the term of the contract to prevent any high costs for damages when returning the vehicle.
