Sixt Named “World's Best” Car Rental Company

Sixt, one of the leading car rental companies in Europe and an international provider of high-quality mobility services, has been chosen as the best car rental company in the world. The company is to receive the “2009 World’s Best Award” from the renowned international tourism magazine Travel + Leisure. The prize will be awarded on July 21, 2009 in New York. Regine Sixt, international senior vice president, marketing and sales, who has responsibility for sales in the United States, will accept the award in person.

The award is based on reader surveys and therefore on the expert judgment of travel professionals. Readers rated international car rental companies by the criteria: vehicle selection, vehicle availability, car-rental location, service and value. According to those surveyed, Sixt offers its customers by far the best overall service.

Says Regine Sixt, “We want our customers all over the world to be 100 percent satisfied with Sixt. That’s why we value the readers’ prize from Travel + Leisure so highly. The award confirms Sixt’s mission to only provide top-quality products and to impress customers with first-class service. Sixt has a unique spirit, because here everything revolves around customers’ wishes.We see the prize both as a confirmation of this and as an incentive to continue our good work.”
