MUNICH, March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
– Car rental booking now also possible via airline website
– Customers receive at least 500 Miles & More premium miles for every car rental booking
Sixt, Germany’s no. 1 car rental company, is extending its partnership with Lufthansa, one of the world’s leading airlines. As part of this co-operation, which applies worldwide, Sixt will offer considerable added value to flight passengers as the car rental partner to Lufthansa. This means passengers will now be able to quickly and easily add a Sixt car rental when booking their flight online at www.lufthansa.com. Passenger and flight data will be automatically carried over so that passengers will not have to input all their data twice.
The offer comprises the whole Sixt rental car fleet, from premium vehicles for a business meeting to a van for the family holiday. The partnership also offers another added benefit for customers in terms of collecting miles: members of Miles & More, the biggest frequent flyer and rewards programme in Europe and a subsidiary of Lufthansa, will receive at least 500 premium miles with each Sixt car rental booking.
