Sixt offers various size vehicles to suit any renter’s requirements, and many different car categories. When renting a vehicle, customers will choose one of these categories, rather than a car by its specific make and model. A nice small car offered by Sixt is the Smart For Two. As its name suggests, its ideal for just two people! Its easy to drive and easy to park, making it great for city driving. The Smart For Two has air conditioning, and even comes with a satellite navigation system if there is one available at the time of your rental. Other smaller sized cars from Sixt include the Fiat 500, Renault Twingo and Fiat Panda. These vehicles seat four people, and may be the ideal choice for couples or small families who do not need much space for luggage. Since that they don’t have a large luggage capacity, a larger vehicle may be more suitable for longer road trips.
There are many other vehicles offered by Sixt which have a bit more space for luggage than those previously mentioned. The Chevrolet Cruze and Renault Scenic are two examples of vehicles which can store two large suitcases and three smaller luggage items. They are a good choice for the average sized family, and for any types of traveling, whether it be for short or long distances. The Fiat Bravo and Renault Megane are another two popular choices which can seat up to four passengers. Satellite navigations systems are provided with all these vehicles if there is one available at the time of rental, as well as with the Renault Clio, Citroen C3 and Chevrolet Aveo.
One aspect which sets Sixt aside from the other car hire companies is that certain vehicles always include a navigation system in their rentals. A GPS unit is a wonderful piece of equipment to have with you, especially if you are unfamiliar with the area in which you will be driving. The navigation systems offered are state-of-the-art pieces of technology, offering many features which will help you find any destination. They feature continuous road maps, a choice of languages, real-time traffic updates, an easy to use interface and an extensive list of pre-programmed points of interest. The points of interest may include locations such as restaurants, hotels, gas stations, golf clubs, popular tourist sites, shopping centers, etc. Vehicles from Sixt which include a navigation system are the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which is an automatic vehicle, the Chrysler 300 C, also an automatic vehicle, and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class T-Modell, which is an estate car. Estate vehicles are always a good option if you have a heavy luggage load. Other estate vehicles available include the Citroen C3 Picasso STW and Renault Megane STW.
Sixt, at Florence Airport, also provides larger vehicles which are suitable for groups of travelers, or families who require plenty of interior space within their vehicle. The Renault Trafic is an example of these, seating up to nine people.
Sixt offers their customers many innovative services which make the car rental process quick and easy. It is recommended that customers have a Sixt Express Card, which will allow access to these services. Customers with a Sixt Express Card can bypass the counter and use the Sixt Quick-Check-In terminals. Here the rental process is completed in three easy steps – insert your Sixt Express Card or credit card into the terminal, choose from the three vehicles available, and print your rental contract. The vehicle keys will be in the safe. Customers will also be able to use the Sixt Mobile-Check-In and Sixt Online-Check-In services with their Sixt Express Card. Ladies can benefit from their partner’s corporate rates with the Sixt Ladies Card, and the Sixt Gold Card is specifically designed to benefit the more frequent renter.
Sixt, at their Florence Airport location, requires the primary renter to be at least 21 years of age, and all renters must be able to show a valid drivers license when collecting the vehicle.
