Sixt Rent a Car has launched operations in Ecuador by opening its first franchised location at the Jose Joaquin de Olmedo International Airport in Guayaquil.

The Sixt Ecuador franchisee is a family-owned car rental business that has served the Ecuadorian market for over 15 years, according to the company.

In addition to the opening in Guayaquil, Sixt recently added new locations in Peru, Paraguay, and Uruguay in South America.

“The addition of Ecuador to the Sixt network represents an important milestone for the brand development in the region, said Ruediger Proske, Sixt senior vice president of global franchise operations. “We are enthusiastic to offer a quality alternative in mobility for tourism and business customers in this great city of Guayaquil. We are equally optimistic to implement additional locations in Quito and other cities in Ecuador soon.”

Sixt’s new location in Guayaquil offers a variety of vehicles, including economy, intermediate, full-size sedans, and SUVs.
