Award-winning service – Germany’s Handelsblatt business and financial newspaper confirms Sixt’s service quality in its car rental test


      • Sixt wins Handelsblatt’s test in the category Best Service

      Munich, September 13, 2013 – Sixt guarantees multiple-award-winning service quality. In addition to topping the rankings from the German Institute for Service Quality, Germany’s largest car rental company was also chosen as the Best Car Rental Company by Hamburg’s Schad Institut in the Service category. The Handelsblatt commissioned the institute to test the performance of five car rental companies. In the category Service, testers awarded Sixt top marks for its quick, high-quality e-mail responses and the company’s longer-than-average opening hours. Testers were also impressed by Sixt’s Mobile Key vehicle return program and customized booking tools for business customers.

      Detlev Pätsch, Head of Operations at Sixt SE: “Being ranked number one by the Handelsblatt in the category Service motivates us to continue to improve and expand our services. Good service is an important measure of satisfaction for our customers – not only during the initial rental transaction, but during the entire rental process. We are very pleased to have been able to prove our quality with the awards from the Handelsblatt and the German Institute for Service Quality twice this year. At the same time, the most important seal of approval remains the opinions of our customers, who continue to put us to the test each and every day.”
