Car rental company, SIXT, recently started up a new mobility app that allows consumers to either rent a car, hail a taxi, or use SIXT's new vehicle sharing platform.
BIS Research forecasts the global mobility services market to be valued at roughly 1.7 trillion by 2028. With its new app, SIXT clearly establishes itself as an innovation leader in urban mobility. The app now combines car rentals, car sharing and ride services.
Whether it’s renting a car for a few days, a few hours, or just hiring a driver for pick ups and drop offs, it’s all just a click away in the SIXT app. The future thinking platform builds on an integrated, connectable platform with reliable partners, and allows consumers more freedom in how they move, while also taking advantage of the rapidly growing sharing and gig economy.
SIXT rent makes the app a digital counter
Already today, customers can select their vehicle digitally at top airports in Germany 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. In 2019, this service is to be successively expanded to other airports in Europe and the USA as well as selected stations in urban areas. Germany’s market leader in the car rental sector is also planning to consistently expand its network of more than 2,200 stations worldwide. With digital stations, for example on parking spaces of hotels or parking garages, SIXT intends to further accelerate its expansion, get closer to the customer and thereby bridge the gap between car rental and stationary car sharing.
