I rented a car from SIXT in France. I was swiped by another car which did not result in any scratches, dents or any other serious damage, only a little paint smudged off of the (non-metal) fender. I was asked to pay about 900 euros which I thought was excessive. I was told that since it was a German car, that German law applied (which I have since been informed is inaccurate.)
I asked for some evidence that they spent 900 euros to fix the damage, none was offered.
SIXT has now forwarded the case to an outside company who claims I must now pay $3,441.17.
I wonder if this is the special treatment afforded me as a SIXT Platinum member.
