Abstract:

Cutting-edge service reduces rental process to just a few hand gestures
Munich, 24 May 2012: Grab your dream car in seconds. As of today, Sixt – Germany’s number-one car rental company – will enable its customers to rent vehicles using innovative barcode technology. This up-to-date service will shorten the over-the-counter rental process. It will reduce it to a few hand gestures, cutting down the time customers spend renting out vehicles to a matter of seconds. At the same time, Sixt has introduced a new counter-management technique designed to minimise the queues at Sixt locations. Sixt will roll out the services to a total of more than 70 stations located in its various corporate countries.

Barcode rental will shake off formalities previously held to be indispensable. As a result, customers will be supplied with the keys to the car they have chosen in the briefest possible time. Barcode rental is very simple. Customers save all of the information required for vehicle rental via a new booking procedure on Sixt’s website  or by using Sixt’s smartphone applications. This information includes their name, licence number, payment method, etc. After completing their bookings customers are assigned a barcode, either on their reservation confirmation or over their smartphone. In addition, customers receive an e-mail containing that same barcode plus important information concerning Sixt stations 48 hours before their departure date.

As a result, customers no longer have to provide any information over the rental counter at all. Instead, when picking up the car keys they simply have to place their barcode on a scanner and present their licence. All this makes the rental process run a lot quicker.

Along with barcode rental, Sixt will introduce a new technique for counter management. This will shorten the time spent queuing to a minimum, allowing business travellers and holidaymakers alike to pick up the vehicle of their choice without wasting time.

Thorsten Haeser, Sixt AG Chief Sales Officer “Sixt has made it possible to pick up the keys to your dream car with just a single gesture. For our customers, this ground-breaking barcode vehicle rental service represents real added value because it again makes the entire rental process even quicker. Through the service, Sixt is yet again living it up to its reputation as a driver of innovations in car rental.”
