RENTAL company Sixt has launched a subscription service starting in its native Germany.
Called Sixt+, the service is all inclusive with highly competitive rates starting at €349 a month.
For this, Sixt+ is providing a Volkswagen Polo, Ford Fiesta or Renault Clio for 500km – excess kilometres are charged at €0.20.
There is a €199 one-off fee to join the subscription service. Cars are either new or no more than 12 months old. Rather like daily rental, cars can be ordered by class of vehicle, but there is no guarantee over actual vehicle supplied.
The subscription is delivered through the Sixt app; customers pick up their car from one of Sixt’s rental outlets in 30 German cities.
The subscription service is for a minimum of 30 days. Customers can choose to continue on a rolling basis from a range of vehicles, although no electric cars are yet available.
Konstantin Sixt, director for sales at Sixt SE, said:
Our new Sixt+ offer is the logical response to society’s changing mobility needs – far beyond the Corona era. With Sixt+, we are optimally expanding our portfolio of flexible rental offers and the service via our app.
