- Handy new functions such as competitively priced booking at prepaid rates or barcode-based car collection
Munich, 11 September 2012 – Sixt, Germany’s number one car rental company, has extended its smartphone application for the Android operating platform. The updated app features a wide range of great new options that make booking cars even easier and more flexible, regardless of where our customers are or when they want to book. The expanded app provides Sixt customers access to rental cars in over 100 countries around the world, and it is available from the Google Play store.
Car rental is not the sole purpose of the new app: customers can use it for a whole lot more. One option is to make use of prepaid hire rates that are exceptionally good value. Customers can also use their smartphones for quick, uncomplicated management of their car reservations, and they also have access to a history of their past rentals. Additionally, the app features a range of filters that make it even easier for customers to locate the particular car they want to rent.
Thanks to the new app, customers can use a QR code to pick up their rental car at selected branches in many European countries. When customers complete a booking, the system sends the code straight to their smartphone, which they can then simply present for scanning at the counter of the pick-up location. This new system does away with conventional paperwork and formalities, meaning customers can now get the key to their rental car as quickly as possible.
The new app also features familiar services such as directions to the specified rental station, along with the use of flexible hire rates and prices that are part of the Sixt Express Card and Sixt Corporate Card packages. The new Android app is available in German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Polish, Swedish, Czech, Hungarian, Turkish and Hebrew.
Sixt has an array of apps designed for all widely-used mobile devices and operating systems, such as iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Bada, WebOS and Windows Phone 7. Sixt is constantly working to improve its apps further so that they deliver the best in comfort and functionality for the customers.
