Sixt is rolling out its ‘all-in’ formula all over Europe
The car rental company Sixt is expanding its new all-in formula ‘Sixt+’ to France. It’s a monthly subscription, including a mileage flat rate, insurance, and all possible registration, repair, and maintenance costs.
Sixt already proposed this formula to professional users and individual renters in Germany, the US, the UK, and the Netherlands.
Due to the corona crisis, the need for individual, non-shared mobility has increased. But so has the reluctance to buy or lease a car, commitments that are now often considered too expensive and too long.
Enter Sixt+, a solution that wants to fit in for these uncertain times. Unlike car-sharing or short-term rentals, the formula allows users to drive their own cars. And unlike buying or leasing, it does so without customers having to enter into a year-long commitment.
From €359 onward
The subscription is proposed in France from €359 per month (slightly more than in Germany, where it starts at €348), depending on the car, the rental’s length, and the planned mileage. The user can end the contract, with a minimum duration of 30 days. after each month, in stark contrast to leasing or renting contracts with a buying option.
Subscribers can enjoy the latest vehicle models permanently, without a high down payment or long delivery times. They can choose from various categories, from small cars to luxury sedans.
“Sixt+ is our new product without ties and is the logical answer to societal evolution and its new mobility needs,” says Konstantin Sixt, member of the board, in a press release.
“This new step takes into account that society continues to evolve. More and more people are looking into new possibilities for their mobility and seeking more flexibility and simplicity ever,” adds Jean-Philippe Doyen, Sixt France president.
Manufacturers like Seat or start-ups like Icaros, Drover (in collaboration with BMW), and Carlili (electric vehicles) have already engaged themselves in this renting too.
Parallel to this, short-term car-sharing possibilities have been multiplying lately in almost all metropolitan cities throughout France and other European countries.
