Sixt Rent a Car Celebrates Oktoberfest 2014

2 Oct 2014 by Izzi     

With Sixt being founded and headquartered in Munich, Germany, it’s only right that we play a part in one of the biggest festivals of the year. Sixt have proved that Oktoberfest is not all about beer and bavarian attire – it’s also a great oppurtunity to enjoy such a fantastic culture, reunite with old friends and to help out people in need. Hosting Damenwiesn (Ladies’ Oktoberfest) and Kinderwiesn (Children’s Oktoberfest), Regine Sixt is able to provide guests with an entertaining day out whilst also raising money for her life-changing children’s charity, Drying Little Tears. Both events have been running since 1989 and they become more and more exciting and enjoyable as the years go on.

Drei, Zwei, Eins – Prost! Oktoberfest L.A.

24 Sep 2014 by Andy     
Filed under: Los Angeles     Tags: , , , , , ,

It’s that time of the year again, a traditional German Celebration happening every year from late September to early October. Many of you will think of these festival just a poor excuse to have a beer or wine with friends. However, the history of the Oktoberfest is a lot more interesting, and once you know it, you can start to appreciate the tradition a lot better. The Oktoberfest is not a typical commercial event popped up through sponsors or promotions. Instead it is a celebration of the late King Ludwig l and his marriage to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hidburghhausen (in 1810) who renowned the day by inviting the citizens of Munich to join in with the festivities on the fields in front of the city gates to mark the royal event.  Unfortunately, during the World War’s there were no festivities, and it would possibly been thought that the Royal Event would never take place again.

However, to our excitement and joy of the royal event, since 1950 the festival is officially back and even more popular attracting more than 6 million visitors worldwide. The festival opening consists of a parade running through the streets of Munich to the Theresienwiesn. At this parade the waitresses, barmen, landlords of the tents walk towards the festival entrances and into their tents before preparing for the twelve gun salute and the tapping of the first keg of Oktoberfest beer. In German we call this “O’zapft is!“ meaning  “It’s Tapped“ marking the official opening and serving of beer.

The future is Now

17 Sep 2014 by Andy     

We have caught up with our vision of the future sooner than expected with the all new electric cars racing off the production line. This year we have witnessed BMW throw the electric car industry a bone with the new i3 and i8, thus creating alot of attention from the eco-friendly enthusiasts. Now some would say that would be a huge sterotype, well it is, but, the awesome design on the i3 entices the interest from a much broader demographic. The i3 is not only helping to save the planet but the style and craftmanship that goes into this phenomenon is incredible. If you don’t yet know what the i3 looks like, ponder your eyes over the following picture:

11 Sep 2014 by Izzi

However, with a Sixt rental car and the cleverly organized San Diego 59-Mile Scenic Drive you can explore each destination easily and without the worry of missing out. This tried-and-tested route allows you to navigate the dispersed nature of San Diego where you’ll hit 30 exciting and unusual locations.

If you couldn’t find the Sixt rent a car at LAX airport, you can now! The new billboard is located on Airport Boulevard next to The Renaissance Hotel, you can’t miss it. But before I dwell too deep into my perception of this billboard, it is important to know that when you first arrive in LAX airport, you can simply jump onto the Renaissance Hotel shuttle which will drive you in style (of course) from the airport to the Sixt rent a car branch.

A One-Way Trip From Miami to Phoenix

Filed under: One-way     Tags: , , , ,

Whether you’re planning on moving across the country, or just want to take a variety-filled road trip and then fly back, a one-way car rental with Sixt is the way to go. The nearly 2,500 mile drive to Phoenix may seem like a long way, but if you make sure you have enough time to stop at some of the great cities, charming towns, and impressive natural sites along the way, you’ll be able to get a unique view of the different states you pass through, the local cultures, and the wonderful landscapes that are sure to make your road trip unforgettable. Probably on the first day of your trip you’re raring to go, but don’t burn yourself out too quickly, you’ve got a long road ahead!

Take your time and make sure you’re not missing anything in Florida before crossing the border into Alabama!

Orlando is not too far from Miami and is a perfect city for a day visit. If you like theme parks, Orlando is home to some of the best in the country, such as Disney World. However, if you had enough thrills in Miami and are looking for something different, drive out the Lakeridge Winery in Clermont, just outside of Orlando. There you can taste some local wine and relax by one of the beautiful lakes that dot the area.
