It’s that time of year again, we are getting closer and closer to the big day and I haven’t bought any presents. But to top it off, I really don’t want to go shopping and join the other 3 million panic buyers in a rush to get the best / any present to give someone. It is also that time of year when you realize how big your family is and how much you have to do to prepare for this day. I know even though the shopping is painful and time consuming it is all for a great moment to share with your loved ones – this is the one reason why Christmas is so important and why we should treasure these times. It’s turning out that in more recent times there is always another addition to the family making it harder and harder to cater for, but I will not fail! Other than the catering, more people means more gifts will be received meaning more smiling faces and as I am the host, I am officially off washing up and cleaning duties.
BMW Group and Sixt team up to launch London’s most flexible and
smart car sharing service – DriveNow
World leaders in urban mobility solutions, BMW Group and Sixt today announced the launch of London’s most spontaneous and flexible car sharing service – DriveNow.
The DriveNow service, which already has over 350,000 customers globally across seven locations (Berlin, Munich, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Hamburg, Vienna and San Francisco) will launch across three London boroughs Islington www.sixt.co.uk/drivenow, Hackney and Haringey from today with other boroughs set to launch the pioneering service in 2015.
Joseph Seal-Driver, UK Head of DriveNow comments: ‘Car sharing has really begun to capture Londoners’ imaginations but it’s still a fairly niche service. Londoners have told us that current services don’t reflect how they live and move. Our goal is that DriveNow’s introduction of a location and booking free, drive-by-the-minute, park anywhere service will act as the tipping point in transforming car sharing into a mainstream mobility choice for Londoners.’
A one-time registration fee of £29 gives DriveNow customers access to a fleet of 210 (up to 300 in 2015) top of the range BMW 1 Series and MINIs. From Spring 2015 the fleet will also be London’s first electric car fleet with the arrival of 30 BMW i3s.
DriveNow car sharing service promises not only to be London’s most stylish, but also its most flexible and spontaneous car sharing service thanks to being entirely location and booking free – cars have no fixed bay to return to, and can be dropped for free anywhere across the boroughs.
The DriveNow App (available on iOS and Android devices) is used by customers to locate and open their nearest car, or they simply use their customer card to unlock and activate a car they’ve seen on the street.
Their driving experience is then totally tailored to their needs as they only pay for the minutes they drive (at 39p a minute with an hourly cap of £20 to drive a DriveNow car, or from as low as 32p with DriveNow savings packages) and can drop the car for as long as they want, wherever they want. The DriveNow service has been the first in London to negotiate with the boroughs Hackney, Islington and Haringey for its customers to be able to park in ANY legal on-street parking space, including all residential parking zones, giving its members unparalleled parking access across some of the capital’s busiest creative, leisure and business centres.
Sixt is happy to announce their new location at Minneapolis St. Paul Airport where you can find all the fantastic customer service and great deals you’d come to expect. As it is our first branch in The Land of 10,000 Lakes, Sixt is excited to make a great impression in the Twin Cities. Our new Minneapolis Airport station is easy to find, located just outside of the car rental center besides the Airport. Our shuttle bus will be waiting to take you straight to our door where you will be handed the keys to your top quality rental car of choice.
Business traveling is made easier with the new partnership between Sixt and Concur which means you can now link both profiles to enable direct rental car bookings with Sixt while maintaining compliance with your company’s travel and expense policies. For business travellers, this means more flexibility during the booking process. For companies the partnership allows more visibility into spending. Finance and travel managers simultaneously receive a clear overview of all bookings, even if these are made directly through our website.

Well we all experienced the mental pain and torture of finding a parking space in the best place, if not the best place then something nearby or worst still somewhere at all. Then when you finally find something the space is too small or tight to squeeze into without scratching your car. Therefore, at Sixt we have created an easy to use feature with help from our friends at Parkme.com. Here you can see all the parking spots available in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Palm Beach and more to come! On this map you are in some cases also able to book a parking spot so you don’t have worry about scaling the streets to find that perfect place to leave your vehicle. Some of the best cities are worth exploring by foot, to find all the nooks and crannies the city has to offer. So let’s get the balling rolling, starting with Miami’s top things to do in the city once you have parked up.
Top things to do in Miami:
- Book some seats and prepare for an awesome basketball match at Miami Hurricanes.
- Try you aim at firing range, make it a competition amongst your peers.
- Jumpin Jamboree – something for the children, a massive indoor pay area!
- Drive in movies!
- Have a family day at one of many arcades in Miami.

The downtown views of Miami are beautiful, we can see why people either choose to live or visit here! Just look at it for a second longer. But don’t fantasize to much we have more incredible places for you to jot down in your travel planner. Next up: Fort Lauderdale.
Well we all know of the crazy ads and campaigns that we run here at Sixt and once again we have done it for France TV this time. Below we have the adverts to show you all, so please take a look and tell us what you think. I wonder what Sixt will think of next, our advertising is second to none and always gets the intereaction we deserve. My personal favorite is the one with the bear, watch and see how you react to this advertisment (the utter surprise on the womens face is priceless!)
