Do you know that scene in all the movies, where the attractive protagonist drives along the coastline through a picturesque beach town, wind blowing through hair, sun shining, pedestrians all turning their heads at the sleek shiny convertible passing by them… Sixt knows. This is why we are proud to open a new location in Hollywood, Florida! Located only 10 minutes from the coast, we want to your beach vacation to also be a get-a-way from reality. With a large number of luxury cars and convertibles that include BMWs, Mercedes, and Mustangs, why not treat yourself? Enjoy the beautiful weather with the top down and your shades on.
If you want to enjoy the warmth of a Florida beach, but don’t want to bother with sometimes overcrowded beaches like Miami or Orlando, then consider Hollywood for your next vacation. Only 20 minutes south of Fort Lauderdale, you can drive into the city for all the attractions there or walk around Hollywood’s downtown and enjoy this lesser known, but just as wonderful area. Whether your interest is shopping, adventures, or simply getting a bronze tan worthy of a Greek god, you can find what you’re looking for here.
Besides obviously going to the beach as often as possible, here are some of the things we like to do when in town:

Murrells Inlet, the neighboring city to the larger and better known city of Myrtle Beach, is known as a food lover’s paradise. A quick 25 minute drive south will take you to this picturesque beach town filled with menu items savory and sweet, clever and creative, and rich and spicy. Known for being the “seafood capital of South Carolina,” nearly every street in its 7.5 sq mile area offers a unique dining experience. In between playing 18 holes on one of the state’s best golf courses or visiting one of Murrells Inlet’s beautiful gardens, we suggest you grab a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants.
Here are some of our favorites:
- River City Cafe- A burger joint like no other. With over 30 different kinds of burgers, you try the “Nacho Crunch” burger topped with guacamole, jalapenos, and doritos, or perhaps the Surf N Turf burger topped with fried shrimp and pepperjack cheese. The decor itself is memorable as well, as the inside walls are covered floor to ceiling with license plats and signatures as customers are allowed to scribble all over the walls. A great place for children too, as they are actually allowed to color on the furniture here.
- Dead Dog Saloon- Located on the waterfront, the nightly live entertainment provides a wonderful atmosphere as you sip your drink, while watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean. Try one of the fresh seafood dishes to get a true taste of the south.
Sixt is talking about Matka in Finland
In January Sixt Finland took part in the Nordic Travel Fair MATKA. MATKA fair was held in Helsinki on January 16-19 and it’s the biggest travel fair in Northern Europe. This year there were almost a thousand exhibitors and 67 000 visitors present. First day of the fair was devoted to trade professionals and next three days the exhibition center was packed with visitors interested in travelling.
We had a 9m² stand with three touch screens that made it possible for visitors to do bookings straight from the stand. As an incentive there was a competition with a price to win a holiday car for a week in any Sixt country in Europe. Read all about: Sixt Finland at MATKA travel fair
- First time the company has received the German Service Prize from the German Institute for Service Quality
- Sixt beat 58 rivals to claim the title
- Named Germany’s best car rental company for the third time back in August
Munich, 5 February 2014 – Sixt, a global provider of premium mobility services, has for the first time received the renowned German Service Prize for tourism. The coveted trophy was presented to Alexander Sixt, Managing Director Corporate Development & Strategy, and Florian Weis, Senior Director Quality Management, in the presence of high-ranking economic and media figures at a celebratory gala in the Berlin office of Bertelsmann, the media company. The prize is awarded each year by the German Institute for Service Quality (Deutsches Institut für Servicequalität, DISQ) on behalf of n-tv, the German news channel, in 11 different sectors.
In a two-stage selection process, the testers were won over by Sixt’s customer-friendly services. In August, the Institute conducted a study into the service quality offered by car rental companies. Following victories in 2010 and 2012, the family business took first place for the third time, making it Germany’s best car rental company. The testers particularly praised the very good services and favorable terms. For example, the company stands out by offering the best telephone service, rapid email processing and a customer-orientated website. Sixt also offered the lowest prices in many of the lease term/vehicle class combinations investigated.
In the second round, Sixt was pitted against 58 car rental companies, budget hotels, adventure providers, travel portals and flight portals. The three companies with the most points – Sixt, Neckermann Reisen and Alltours – were named the overall winners in the ‘Tourism’ category, receiving the 2014 German Service Prize.

Israel offers travelers a wide variety of attractions such as the Dead Sea, the Wailing Wall of Jerusalem and the nightlife and restaurants of Tel Aviv. Renting a car from Sixt can help you to experience Israel your way, without adhering to the schedules of public transportation. However, you need to understand the insurance options when renting. Making a mistake when purchasing coverage can be a financial disaster and put a damper on your vacation.
Here is what you need to know about your insurance options for rental cars in Israel
- Required Coverage: Limited Damage Waiver (LDW)
This insurance is required for all vehicles. It will cost 40 percent of your rental fee, so make sure to factor this into your budget. If you decide to only take this liability insurance, you will also be required to leave $2,500 as deposit against any damage done to the vehicle.
- Comprehensive Coverage: Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection (TP)
These additional insurances cost between 10 and 15 dollars a day, which may be waived if they are covered by your credit card company. Check with your credit card issuer to check what is covered before you decide to rely solely on them. If you have comprehensive coverage through your credit card and plan to use it, bring documentation to the rental office with you. This insurance does not cover any damage to the tires or undercarriage of the vehicle, so drive carefully. Read all about: What You Need to Know About Insurance When Renting a Car in Israel
The United Kingdom is home to some of best and most renowned music festivals in the world. With literally hundreds of festivals covering a wide range of musical genres and styles, there is a festival to fit everyone’s tastes! In the 1960s the large-scale modern music festival was born. Following on from the success of Woodstock in the United States, the UK followed suit and began to host its very own festivals, with early examples dating back to the Isle of Wight Festival in the late 60s.
The Sixt blog brings you a rundown of three diverse UK music festivals that are coming up this year!
- Glastonbury Festival
Arguably one of the most famous and well known festivals in the world is the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts, which started back in the 1970s. Annually in June, this festival takes place on Worthy Farm near the village of Pilton in Somerset attracting over 100,000 eager music lovers. Although Glastonbury is best known for its fantastic musical line up, it also showcases a wide variety of other arts such as dance, comedy, theatre, circus, and cabaret. The ethos of Glastonbury remains laid back, relaxed, and holds true to its hippie origins. Lucky festival goers are in for a unique and unforgettable experience.

This Saturday, 25.01.2014, Sixt Mexico was able to position the brand again in the national and international television through its box sponsorship.
Our fighter, Adrian “Estrella” Diamante, featured the star fight of this Saturday nights television event boxing against his Japanese opponent in Super Feather Weight “Yuta Matsuda”. As in the last international box fight, Adrian knocked out the other boxer; this time in the 5th round. Adrian is on a straight way to his first world championship title. Sixt Mexico will do its best to keep sponsoring these fights that are already being subsidized by Mexico´s biggest companies such as Telmex (Carlos Slim’s main company) and Cemex.
This time our logo was broadcasted during the whole fight on Adrian´s shorts right next to Telmex´ logo, on the base caps of his trainer and club and on a big sized cushion on the ring side. All those logos were very present in the TV´s cameras. Two national TV stations broadcasted this event: Channel 5 and TDN Univision, both part of Televisa group.

Germany is rising in popularity year on year as a tourist destination, and it’s not hard to see why. From the thriving cultural and historical hub of Berlin to the unspoilt countryside of Bavaria and of course, the famous Oktoberfest, the country has a lot to offer to the intrepid traveler.
And, as one of the larger countries on continental Europe, with a world famous network of motorways in the form of the Autobahn and some stunning scenic views along the way, it’s perfect for a road trip or car holiday. Driving enthusiasts take note though – there are strict rules on the roads.
