Sixt rent a car are launching a new awareness campaign which revolves around travelling safely with younger passengers and provides further information regarding the laws, regulations and penalties surrounding the use of baby/child safety seats. To reinforce our message and get our information across in the best way possible we have produced a new section on our UK website with help, advice and a detailed infographic explaining how to correctly and securely install a child safety seat in your car. Our infographic was researched, produced and carefully designed to clearly outline the best seat to use. The location in which it should be placed and the position it should face – all in relation to the age, height and weight of the child that will be securely fastened in.
Sixt is very excited to announce the #SixtRallye that will commence from the 22nd of August in which 6 teams made up of 12 travellers will drive around 10 European cities with one of our premium Sixt car rentals!

When you think of Scotland a few things immediately spring to mind: traditional kilts, bagpipes, fine whisky (note that there is no ‘e’, whiskey is Irish), haggis and chilly weather. However, added to the end of that list is most likely the Scottish Highland games. The Highland games themselves refer to a series of events that take place all across the world and at various points of the year – although historically these games did originate from Scotland and accordingly the most notable and largest of these games continue to take place each year in the highlands of Scotland. The exact origin of these games or the nature in which they first started is difficult to place, one thing is certain: components and events of the Highland games have developed over the years to become symbolic of Scotland itself. Although there is no exact blueprint as to what to expect from each city’s and country’s interpretation of the Highland games, they do tend to follow a rough guide and celebrate traditional Scottish and Gaelic culture.
DriveNow is a car sharing mobility concept that was developed as a joint venture between car rental giant Sixt and Bavarian automotive company BMW. This car sharing program provides customers with the availability to hire a car no matter where they are, with complete flexibility. Once a customer is registered they can simply hop into the closest DriveNow car and drive away, without any further worries or hassles. To truly allow you to travel without restriction there are no designated points in which you are required to return your DriveNow vehicle once you are finished. As long as you are still within the business area you can simply park up, walk away and the job’s a good’un. DriveNow is currently available in several cities across Germany and the USA, but it is only a matter of time until it makes its way over to England – with a début naturally planned for London. Once it lands on the shores of Blighty, you will be able to take advantage of this great car sharing program that is already taking Europe and North America by storm.

Each year in excess of 5 million tourists flock from all over the world to visit this beautiful Island, soak up the seemingly endless sunshine and experience the diverse scenery on offer.
When it comes to visiting London you can easily be overwhelmed with the plethora of attractions to see, things to do and the sheer amount of people rushing about around you. The best advice we can give is to take a step back and tackle each attraction one by one – this way you can identify which are the most appealing to you and ultimately create the best experience of London you possibly can. On of the top of most lists of things to see would be Tower Bridge; which is often confused with London bridge by many tourists and even locals.
Our Salzburg car rental branch may be one of the most beautifully situated stations that we have, and with over 4,000 other stations around the world it definitely isn’t short of competition. The wonderfully historic city of Salzburg can be found on the banks of the Salzach River, on the northern limit of the Alps, and remains an extremely popular destination for tourists and sightseers from around the world. The city has two distinct claims to fame, both of which have a musical origin; Salzburg was the picturesque setting to the famous musical “The Sound of Music” and arguably more importantly was the birthplace to the prodigy composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Classical music and history lovers will find celebrations and reminders of Mozart all over the city – most notably his face plastered on almost everything tangible, from mugs, posters, t-shirts and even his famous chocolate balls.

A couple of months ago, on the 23rd March, members of the Sixt UK team took part in a half marathon in Liverpool to help raise money for a special Easter trip for disabled and disadvantaged children – which was being led by The Pilgrimage Trust organisation.
