Australian roads.

All Redspot.Sixt vehicles are fitted with child restraint anchor points.

Redspot.Sixt offers 2 types of child seats for hire: child restraints and child booster seats. Each type is available at Redspot.Sixt locations in limited supply. We recommend child seats are pre-booked to avoid disappointment. Redspot.Sixt offers a child booster seat which is a molded child seat and height booster; it is not a child restraint. It elevates the height of a child to enable the alignment of the sash of a lap sash seat belt across the child’s shoulder and is recommended for children of 5 to 9 years of age.

Redspot.Sixt offers a child restraint which is the reversible type. When fitted in the reverse position it is suitable for newborn to 6-month old babies with the baby facing the rear of the vehicle. When fitted in the upright position the child restraint is recommended for infants of 6 months to 5 years of age with the infant and restraint facing forward.

Our intent is to ensure that our customers receive a level of service that they would expect in ensuring that the child seats (restraints) are correctly fitted, meeting all manufacturers safety standards and requirements.

Some of our staff are been trained in the fitting of child safety restraints, and only these staff will be able to fit the restraints, or to advise on what they believe to be the best type of restraint and method of fitting.

Please be aware however, that if you have requested a restraint be fitted, that the child restraint you have booked has been installed in the car for your convenience.

Please check that the restraint is installed to your requirements before driving off, as Redspot.Sixt does not take any responsibility for incorrect fitting.

Premium Roadside Assistance:
This is the roadside assistance service that kicks in where standard breakdown service ends. Premium Roadside Assistance covers those times when you just need a helping hand to get on your way, like fitting a spare tyre or opening a car with the keys locked in.
Services offered in the Premium Roadside Assistance program include:

Booking information
To make a booking you must complete our booking form which is easy to follow and secured with the latest encryption technology. Once we receive your form, we will, subject to availability, confirm your booking by emailing you a confirmation voucher and invoice.

If you are booking via phone, please make sure you have read the terms and conditions of the vehicle you wish to rent first. Our reservations consultant will ask you if you have read the terms and agree to them before proceeding. The onus is always on the renter to ensure they make themselves fully aware of the terms displayed on our website. Please note that a 1.95% credit card or debit card surcharge will be added when your payment is processed.

Information disclosure
In booking on this website you acknowledge that we disclose your information to your selected Supplier in order to provide the requested rental services.

Vehicle capacity and fitness to drive
Under no circumstances are you permitted to carry more passengers than the vehicle you rent is legally registered to carry, and if you do your insurance may be invalidated. The number of seatbelts (and passengers) is indicated next to each vehicle on this website. Luggage capacity where shown is an indication only and we will not be responsible should you be unable to fit your entire luggage into a vehicle. It is your responsibility to choose a journey that is within your capabilities. A vehicle supplier can refuse to rent a vehicle to any person who is in their opinion unfit to drive or does not meet eligibility requirements. In such circumstances we will have no further liability to you.

Refund Policy
We are committed to providing a quality service and aim for complete customer satisfaction. In the event of cancellation, any refunds or penalties are detailed in the terms and conditions of your selected vehicle that you are asked to read and accept at time of booking. In the event you are unsatisfied with our service, please contact us within 48 hours of placing your booking or request and we will work to resolve any issues and determine if compensation is due. In the event you have completed your rental and are unhappy with your vehicle, we are happy to assist you in seeking compensation from the operator of the vehicle.
