In the events calendar below you will find an overview of the upcoming SIXT events, including financial conferences, annual meetings and HR events.
When Martin Sixt started his company “SIXT Autofahrten und Selbstfahrer“ (“SIXT Car Cruises and Self Drivers“) in 1912, Germany didn‘t even have a proper road network. Still, Martin believed in the future of his idea. In 1917, Martin Sixt purchased a location in the Seitzstraße 11 in Munich, where one of the most popular SIXT branches still exists today.
Martin Sixt handed over the company to his nephew, Hans Sixt. An 8-cylinder Isotta Fraschini and the big 6-cylinder Renault became part of the fleet. Eventually, because of bottlenecks in the spare parts supply for foreign brands, SIXT decided to use only Mercedes vehicles from 1929 onwards.
Martin Sixt passed away in May 1945. In the end, he even had to witness the destruction of the residential and business sites in the Seitzstraße by bombings. On top of that, the German army confiscated all SIXT vehicles, except for the Mercedes 230 Landaulet.
After innovations like the first radio-taxis in Europe, SIXT Car Rental was founded under Hans Sixt. Just a few years later, the first branches at airports in Frankfurt am Main and Munich opened.
The Sixt family’s car rental company realized in an early stage that Germany had a large and sustainable need for a leasing product. As a result, SIXT opened the first German company with a first full-service leasing program for vehicles.
Erich Sixt, the present Chairman of the Supervisory Board of SIXT SE, joined the family business as the third generation. Together with his wife Regine Sixt, he continually expanded the company to its present size and significance in the market, launching its presence at all German airports. SIXT’s innovative strategy was expanded further with the introduction of rental automates (SIXT Express).
The company began to offer clients not only rental cars, but also the possibility to rent a van or truck.
This was one of the most significant decisions in the history of SIXT. With the IPO, new growth opportunities were created. In 2013 SIXT AG will change its legal form to an European Corporation, the current SIXT SE.
The growing leasing division led to the establishment of a daughter company called “SIXT Leasing GmbH“ in 1988.
Only a year after SIXT Car Rentals started operations in Switzerland, Regine Sixt began the international expansion with franchisees and broadened the company‘s presence rapidly. In the early 90s, SIXT became the market leader in Germany. Today, SIXT is operating worldwide in more than 100 countries.
Regine Sixt also founded the SIXT Children‘s Aid Association (Kinderhilfe e.V.) in Munich in 2000 and transformed it into a foundation in 2011. Themed “Drying little tears“, it supports children living in poverty worldwide. Today, the Regine Sixt Children‘s Aid Foundation is the official Corporate Social Responsibility Program in all countries around the world wherever SIXT is present.
With this new daughter company (today SIXT Car Sales), SIXT entered the market of second hand car sales. However, the core business of SIXT is still car rental.
SIXT was the first worldwide car rental company to offer booking via iPhone, adapting itself to the changing mobility needs of customers. With the swipe of a finger, a customer can rent a SIXT vehicle. The SIXT app also supports vehicle pick-up with barcodes to shorten the process. Furthermore, SIXT offers its customers vehicles with the intelligent information system, BMW ConnectedDrive, which interconnects the driver and delivers relevant pieces of information for the customer’s journey.
Alexander Sixt assumed control of corporate development, and Konstantin Sixt took responsibility for the entire Internet business, which is of vital importance for SIXT.
SIXT starts its expansion in the USA and opens its first rental branches in Florida.
SIXT and BMW joined forces, starting the joint venture DriveNow, a premium car sharing product. This innovative mobility concept combines the highest quality vehicles and services with ease and flexible usage.
SIXT celebrated its 100th anniversary and pursued further international expansion. DriveNow expanded and an offer for commercial use by the companies is introduced. As the only international provider, SIXT also offers a comprehensive service covering car-sharing, renting and leasing.
SIXT enlarged its mobility solutions product range with myDriver, a professional chauffeur service for private and business customers with affordable and transparent fixed prices. The daughter company focuses mainly on airport transfers. The fleet consists of high-end limousines from renowned brands.
With the IPO of the SIXT Leasing SE, SIXT put the leasing business on a solid financial footing, at the same time making it the first listed car leasing company in Germany. Also in 2015, the sons of Erich Sixt, Alexander and Konstantin, were appointed to the Board of Directors of SIXT SE. Finally, you can unlock a vehicle with your smartphone! SIXT starts the new service “Fastlane” in Switzerland.
The transfer service provider myDriver expanded internationally to several European cities.
The premium car sharing product DriveNow expanded internationally. Outside Germany the car sharing service is available in Brussels, Copenhagen, London, Milan, Stockholm and Vienna.
After operating as a franchise country for 19 years, SIXT now welcomes Italy to our Corporate Family! The first months of business has already been promising. SIXT has successfully opened 12 branches at the largest airports in North Italy, including Milan, Rome, Florence and Venice. Multiple branch openings in the rest of Italy, predominantly in the South, are planned for the end of 2017 and 2018.
With “Mobility as a Service” (MaaS), SIXT provides a groundbreaking digital solution to meet the changing requirements of today's mobility landscape. Users receive a mobility budget, and have the freedom to use this budget around the world on SIXT Rent a car, DriveNow carsharing and myDriver, the taxi alternative.
SIXT now offers his customer an Amazon Alexa Skill to easily book a car via voice input. The company uses once again the state of the art technology to make it as easy and comfortable as possible for the customers to rent a car. The dream car is not only just one click away but now allows you to order at call.
SIXT has launched a combined booking platform for SIXT mydriver, the SIXT Limousine Service & SIXT rides, giving a wide range of consumers easy access to all sectors of driven mobility. On the SIXT website you can now find anything from a straightforward airport transfer to sightseeing tours and a more upscale chauffeur service.
SIXT divests its share in the joint venture DriveNow to the BMW Group. The joint venture of SIXT and BMW was founded in spring 2011 and raised its fleet since it’s available in 13 European cities, in total to 6,000 premium vehicles. During the cooperation with the German car manufacturer, SIXT successfully validated its innovative power in terms of effectively introducing new ventures to the market. Moreover, the transaction of DriveNow enables SIXT to bundle all of its mobility offers and strengthen its autonomous position as the leading mobility provider.
In February 2019, SIXT launches its ONE mobility platform together with the new SIXT App. By integrating SIXT rent (digital car rental), SIXT share (car sharing) and SIXT ride (taxi and ridehailing services) into a single app, customers have access to more than 200,000 vehicles and mobility offers from around 1,500 partners with over 1.5 million drivers in more than 250 cities worldwide at that time. All three offers can be booked and paid for via the SIXT App.
In response to changing mobility needs SIXT launched in June 2020 a completely flexible car subscription with numerous inclusive services and without long contract periods. With SIXT rent, SIXT share, SIXT ride and now also SIXT+, SIXT is the first company worldwide to offer mobility solutions for every need on a single platform. From car sharing for just a few minutes, holiday rentals for a few weeks to car subscriptions for several months.
We are a family business with more than 6.900 family members in around 110 countries. And no matter how big we may become – we will always be more a family than a business. Because every family is unique.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a permanent part of the SIXT Group’s corporate policy. Promoting activities for the sustainable and socially responsible actions of the company and its employees is part of our self-image, our mission statement and our value system at SIXT. The issues of energy and environment, as well as volunteering and supporting charitable causes are at the centre of our activities.
