Special rental information when booking Prepaid rates

Prepaid tariff - Pay now

When booking at a prepaid rate, the payment will be charged along with the total rental price (incl. booked extras and charges) prior to the rental. The driver and mode of payment shall be finalised at the time of reservation and cannot be changed. A refund shall not be issued for non-collection, vehicle being collected late or returned early.

Changing booking

A prepaid booking can be changed up to 48 hours before the start of the rental (depending on availability) in return for a booking modification fee of 15.000,00 CLP. Any payment already made towards the rental will not be refunded; nor shall any differential amount be refunded if this modification leads to a lesser rental cost. Any changes made to a prepaid reservation may impact the rental rate. A change from a prepaid rate to a non-prepaid rate is not possible.


A booking can be cancelled before the start of the rental. In the event of cancellation, the payment already made towards the rental will be paid back subject to a cancellation charge. The cancellation charge shall be the amount of the rental charge (including any extras and charges) for a maximum of 3 rental days. Cancellations can be made by e-mail and must be addressed to: Sixt Rent a Car Chile, e-mail: [email protected]


In the event that the booked vehicle is not collected or not collected at the agreed time, the rental charge already paid shall be withheld in full.
