Sixt and L‘TUR conclude online partnership2014.04.13
- Sixt becomes exclusive online rental car partner of L‘TUR
- Rental cars quicker and easier to book
- Attractive product and price specials
Berlin, 6 March 2014 – Sixt, Germany’s leading mobility service provider, and L‘TUR, Europe’s market leader in last-minute travel, extended their alliance at the beginning of this year. As their exclusive online partner, Sixt is now more closely integrated into the Baden-Baden-based spontaneous holiday specialist’s booking process at www.ltur.com.
The advantage of this for L’TUR customers is that booking a rental car has become more convenient. A click of the mouse brings you from www.ltur.com directly to Sixt’s attractive offers, which will also be available when you choose package holidays, combined rail and hotel offers, and fly-rail tickets. The whole of Sixt’s rental car fleet is on offer, from premium vehicles for business meetings, to estate cars for family holidays.
Sixt and L‘TUR aim to continue the expansion of their alliance, and plan to integrate other Sixt mobility services at a later stage.
Regine Sixt: "We are very pleased about our collaboration with L‘TUR over the next few years. Last-minute travellers stand to gain from it especially since they can now conveniently book a comprehensive mobility experience with excellent service at very attractive prices.”
Rüdiger Peters, Director eCommerce at L'TUR: "This online partnership will enrich what we have to offer. Sixt and L'TUR are two brands that go together perfectly.”
