Lisbon/Funchal/Porto, 10th March 2017 – Sixt, international provider of high-end mobility services, has added three new stations at Portugal’s most important destinations to extend its network of sites there. Up until now, Sixt has only been present at Lisbon Airport, but from now on customers can rent the vehicles of their choice for their holidays and business trips at a station in the centre of Portugal’s capital. Furthermore Sixt is offering its comprehensive services to its customers in the regional centres of Funchal on the island of Madeira and in Porto besides the presences at the respective airports. All of the new stations enjoy excellent transport connections and are quick and easy to reach by foot, public transport or car. There is ample parking space at each location.

Sixt staff welcomes customers at the new downtown stations in a spacious set-up with modern, bright counters. The services on offer there range from conventional short-term rentals all the way to convenient long-term hire. Customers can choose from a premium fleet of saloons, sports cars and nippy compact vehicles suitable for exploring these favourite holiday destinations.

Detlef Krehahn, Senior Vice President Sixt International Franchise: “The expansion of our presence in Portugal is a sign of how successfully we have been working with our outstanding franchise partners there. Our downtown stations offer customers lots of extra flexibility and convenience because they can use the Sixt rental vehicles they want, and our other high-end mobility services, to facilitate a relaxed holiday or their next business trip without depending on when they might be arriving or departing at the airport.”
