Sixt, a European car rental company, has expanded its services in the UK by launching an outlet at London Gatwick Airport.
The company claims to be able to offer an exclusive portfolio of rental cars to its customers arriving at Gatwick, with rental models ranging from BMW, Opel, Volkswagen, Ford and Toyota to Audi Aston Martin, Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Bentley, and Mercedes, in all sizes, including small and mid-size cars, SUVs, premium vehicles, and minibuses.
London Gatwick offers direct access from the terminal to the car hire collection and drop-off points, avoiding the need for the shuttle bus that caters for around 92,650 business travellers and holidaymakers who pass through the airport every day.
Paul McLoughlin, the managing director for Sixt Rent A Car, UK, said, ‘Sixt are thrilled to be moving into Gatwick Airport. It’s an important milestone in our ongoing growth across the UK. Our goal is to make it as simple as possible for businesses and holiday makers to have access to a range of high quality, well specified vehicles backed by unparalleled service at affordable prices. We look forward to working with the team at Gatwick and providing their passengers with the ultimate mobility solution.’
Julia Gregory, the head of surface transport at London Gatwick Airport, said, ‘We are delighted to welcome Sixt to Gatwick. Sixt is well known for its innovative approach to customer service so we look forward to working closely with them to deliver an even better experience for our passengers.
As one of the few airports to offer direct access from the terminal to car rental pickup points, our aim is to double car rental usage and offer our passengers even more choice.’
