My first experience with SIXT was last year when I needed to rent a car for a week. I didn’t need anything fancy and rented a Prius C for roughly $23 a day. What did I get when I arrived? A C-Class Mercedes that would normally cost more than $75 a day. How was I able to land such an amazing upgrade? SIXT Platinum status – which could be yours very easily with World Elite Mastercard. Yep, not any specific card, but a whole slew of cards will give you SIXT Platinum status. In fact, you may already have one. Let’s take a look.
Straight from the site:
Sixt rent a car was founded in 1912 in Munich, Germany, and started out with a fleet of just three vehicles. As one of the first and most important international car rental companies in the world – with over 100 years in the business – we have earned a trusted reputation as a global leading car rental provider. Always at the forefront of the industry, we were the first car rental company with a website and the first to accept mobile reservations. Today we are present in over 105 countries with branches in over 4,000 locations. You will be able to find our Sixt car rental services internationally, in almost every major city and tourist destination worldwide and at convenient locations such as airports, train stations, cruise ports, and hotels.
I love SIXT because they have gorgeous German imports that you can often get upgraded into, or snag a great deal on.
OK, but status often is all bark no bite…What does Platinum Status get me?
Without this benefit it would require 10 rentals to achieve the status.
When I made my reservation I chose this
And then when I arrived I got this car. That’s like a double on double upgrade.
Where others could have paid over $475…I paid just $143!
