• Sixt wins the German Institute for Service Quality’s industry test for the third time
• Clear test winner in the Conditions and Service categories
Munich, 29 August 2013 – Germany’s biggest car rental company once again emerged as the clear winner in this year’s test conducted by the German Institute for Service Quality (Deutsches Institut für Service-Qualität, DISQ) on behalf of news channel n-tv. The company was awarded by the Institute in 2010 and 2012 as well. This is the second time in succession that Sixt has outdone its rivals, scoring especially in terms of its conditions and outstanding service. For instance, the company provided the best telephone service, exceptionally quick and high quality e-mail handling, and a very clear, customer-oriented website. All in all, Sixt is Germany’s best car rental company.
The German Institute for Service Quality and news channel n-tv assessed a number of different aspects of German car rental firms. They examined companies’ terms and prices on the basis of a range of model queries. Sixt offered the lowest prices for many of the combinations of rental duration and vehicle category that were inquired about. Furthermore, the Institute tested service quality by means of covert phone calls and e-mail inquiries, and assessed the user-friendliness of websites. Again, Sixt’s results were significantly better than all of its rivals. Read all about: Sixt is once again Germany’s best Car Rental company

Pullach, 21 August 2013 – Sixt Group closed out a good first half year 2013 with business performance in line with company expectations. The international mobility service provider’s two business units, Vehicle Rental and Leasing, recorded revenue growth. Consolidated operating revenue for the first half year climbed 2.7% to EUR 704.3 million. Group earnings were on a high level, though slightly below the previous year, as had been forecast, because of a weak economic environment in Europe and the start-up costs for strategic growth initiatives. The Managing Board confirms its previous projections for the full year 2013.

The exterior received a new aggressive look. When a customer first sets eyes on it, the Escape has a “sporty” feel. The previous model gave more of a truck-like impression. This model however, is built to more aggressively handle the road. While the new Escape may look more like a sports car, the cargo space has actually improved from last year’s model by five cubic feet. The 2013 Escape is also longer, wider and has a longer wheelbase, all while sitting a few inches lower to ground. Based on the frame from the Ford Focus, the Escape is built to handle like a car while providing the cargo space of a full-sized SUV. Read all about: The New 2013 Ford Escape
Mexico is covered with huge landscapes, views that you should see at least once in your lifetime and we are pretty much aware of how lucky we are for having this. From hot desserts up north in Saltillo to humid green valleys down south in Chiapas, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world like Cancun to cold winters high up in the mountains of Chihuahua.
Yes, Mexico is stuffed with tons of colors, shapes, stories and food. All these characteristics slightly change from north to south, east to west, but in essence they are all the same everywhere. We love to celebrate soccer championships, national holidays, birthdays, new achievements, new opportunities. We choose to enjoy the little things… big time.
Even “death” has a special date in a tradition called Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) with special food, altars and songs, in order to celebrate the departure of our loving ones, honor them, and help them on their way to the spirit world.
Like I said before, we are very family centered people. We try to get as much family as we can to our parties and this includes friends, neighbors and sometimes even strangers. Weather it is at church or at a restaurant, we love to be near friends and family, and if you are not part of neither yet, what are you waiting for?

A road trip from Lille to Marseille is a wonderful way to experience the “real France,” say locals who are proud of the many landmarks, museums, amusements and outdoor activities that are offered in both of these classic French communities.
In fact, there is a view from longtime travelers to this region of France that a rental car is the most effective and efficient means to see all that both Lille and Marseille have to offer.
At the same time, the mention of Lille and Marseille – when speaking to French locals – usually conjures up the regional football (soccer) rivalry between these two communities. Also, there are many easy motor routes to travel between both towns with holiday makers opting to stay a few days in the port city of Marseille and then moving on for a few days or more in the lovely town of Lille.
