Luxury car rental company Sixt Rent-a-Car announced plans last month to continue its U.S. expansion efforts with new locations in San Diego and San Antonio. The locations will open this fall.
“San Diego and San Antonio are two specific markets where we have long believed we can compete successfully, earning a relationship with untold thousands of new customers,” said Daniel Florence, co-president, Sixt USA. “Because we are focused on the leisure consumer, these great cities are key areas. They’re famous as first-rate vacation destinations, rich with sights to see, and filled with wonderful places to drive.
“When people come to our branches, they love the fun, the excitement, the music, but they also appreciate the hands-on, luxury experience with great customer service, and — at the end of the day — the best cars to rent anywhere,” Florence continued. “We are thrilled to bring the ‘Sixt experience’ to new customers in these two powerful new markets.”
Sixt first launched in the United States in 2011 and has more than 50 locations in California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Washington, Texas, Connecticut, New Jersey, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Arizona and Massachusetts. It is now the fifth-largest rental company in the United States and has more than 4,000 locations in more than 115 countries.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
