“Welcome to the world of Sixt” as one of
their promotion brochures says which I find to be an interesting come
on. But a come on to what?
Frankly I had no idea that Sixt is
a rental car company and that it has been in business since 1912.
Who knew? I also was made aware that Sixt was voted the 4th best rental
car company in the world according to the November 2007 issue of Conde
Naste Traveler magazine.
A few facts according to Sixt is that they have the “biggest Mercedes-Benz
and BMW rental fleet in the world” and they operate “3,500 rental
stations in 75 countries.”
So now that we (sort of) know who they are and what they do, allow
me to pass along some information that may help (you) the traveler.
Hilton Hotel is a partner in Europe and Israel and a partner of Hilton
Honors worldwide providing rental counter service at the hotel.
Lufthansa is the European airline they partner with for mileage points
and rewards. Book your reservation under www.milesandmore.com/
Delta and United are their U.S. carrier partners and both give 500 miles
with each car rental. Also, Delta has a SkyMiles program and United has its
Mileage Plus program that discounts 15% to 35% on Sixt car rentals. Apply
