  • SIXT share vehicles can also be returned in the Berlin and Hamburg business areas and at around 2,100 SIXT stations
  • With SIXT share, customers will always automatically be on the way at the best price and in the car of their choice – for as long as and wherever they want
  • Nico Gabriel, Managing Director of the SIXT X division: “Anyone who has our app no longer needs to own a car of their own in Munich.”

Pullach, 23 May 2019 – SIXT SE continues to consistently roll out its integrated mobility offering. After Berlin and Hamburg, the car sharing service SIXT share is now also available in Munich. SIXT has thus completed its SIXT app offering in Munich as well. Besides the option of conventional car rental or booking a taxi or driving service via SIXT ride, customers can now also use a vehicle for a short period of time – from one minute to several days. SIXT share vehicles can also be returned in Berlin and Hamburg as well as at around 2,100 SIXT stations.

Nico Gabriel, Managing Director of the SIXT X division: “I am delighted to be able to offer SIXT share, another component of our comprehensive mobility offer, in our home town as well. The way we move around is currently changing rapidly. SIXT is a driver of this change by providing our customers with relevant services such as car sharing, car rental and taxis for their daily mobility from one single source. With our SIXT app and a 50 euros mobility start credit for every resident of Munich, we are making it easier than ever before to get from A to B without your own car. Anyone who has our app no longer needs to own a car of their own in Munich.”

SIXT share in Munich
The Munich SIXT share business area of around 80 km² extends from Solln to Milbertshofen and from Pasing to Bogenhausen. The journey from and to the airport is now also possible, as well as to and from the Garching research centre. With SIXT share, customers in Munich can now access SIXT’s diverse fleet and decide whether they want to rent a vehicle for a few minutes or for up to 27 days. Initially, the car sharing service will start in Munich with a fleet size of around 700 vehicles. If necessary, the fleet can be flexibly scaled – i.e. vehicles from the fleet of SIXT rent can be brought in when demand is high and vice versa. Customers have access to a wide range of vehicles and models, from the VW Golf to the MINI Cooper or BMW X1 to the electrically powered Renault ZOE.

50 euros starting credit for new customers of the SIXT app
If the price per minute for the driven period exceeds the current daily price, customers automatically pay the lower daily price. Just in time for the launch of SIXT share at its home base in Munich, SIXT welcomes all new customers with a 50 euros mobility credit. This includes a 30 euros voucher for the first trip with SIXT share as well as 10 euros vouchers each for SIXT rent and SIXT ride.

By merging car sharing and car rental, SIXT plans to implement its combined offering in smaller and medium-sized cities in the medium term besides the three major cities.

SIXT ride in Munich
With SIXT ride, taxi, driving and transfer services can also be booked immediately in Munich or reserved in advance. SIXT is internationally cooperating with the best mobility service providers in the respective markets. In Germany, the taxi industry is the partner of choice. The services are booked and paid for directly via the new SIXT App. With SIXT ride, customers can be picked up in less than 10 minutes and book transfers in advance.

All in one app – the SIXT app
Customers can access SIXT share via the new SIXT app, in which SIXT has integrated its products SIXT rent, SIXT share and SIXT ride. Through SIXT rent, the SIXT app becomes a digital counter. Already today, customers can select their vehicle digitally at over 20 airports in Germany and Europe up to 30 minutes before the start of the rental period, go to the car park without making a detour to the counter and open the vehicle directly via the SIXT app.
