Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
Sixt, Germany’s number one car rental company with more than 4,500 locations all over Europe and in the southeastern United States, has made its first move into the American West with the opening of a new branch in Phoenix, Arizona. The western branch opened on Thursday, October 11, 2012, at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to provide Phoenix travelers with excellent service and affordable rental vehicles.
Brian Hughes, branch manager of the new Phoenix location, is excited about Sixt’s growth into the West. “I am thrilled to see Sixt expand into the thriving Phoenix market,” Hughes said. “Phoenix is booming, and Sixt’s Phoenix location is ready to serve business and leisure travelers alike.” Hughes brings to the table 12 years of experience in the rental business and is certainly excited to put his knowledge to use for Sixt in Phoenix.
The decision to open a new branch in Phoenix is right in line with Sixt’s target market. Phoenix is the sixth most populous city in the United States and is a key location that serves as a launching pad to top travel destinations such as the Grand Canyon and Sedona, Ariz.
Opening a new branch at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport allows Sixt to tap into a top auto rental market in the United States. The Phoenix Airport is one of the 10 busiest airports in the country, with over 700,000 passengers passing through every week. Sixt’s branch at the Phoenix Airport is open 24/7 to assist travelers no matter what time their flights arrive or depart.
Sixt is pleased to begin providing affordable rental cars to customers in this new market. With Sixt, renters can choose from a variety of vehicles, including sedans, vans, SUVs, and convertibles. Sixt’s fleet is unique, offering economical, eco-friendly cars such as the Hyundai Accent, which gets 40 mpg highway, and high-end, luxury cars such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
With the addition of the Phoenix branch, Sixt now operates agencies in seven locations in the United States. Sixt’s other US branches are located in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Orlando, Palm Beach, and West Palm Beach, Florida; and Atlanta, Georgia.
