Business Traveler U.S. Awards 2022: SIXT Named Best Car Rental Company in North America

This Achievement Follows Three First Place Victories for Best Car Rental Company Across Germany, Europe, and Worldwide.

Fort Lauderdale, FL (December 22, 2022) – SIXT has been named the best car rental company in North America 2022 at the annual Business Traveler U.S. Awards. This accolade accompanies three awards SIXT received from German publication Business Traveller for best car rental company in Germany, Europe as well as worldwide. The premium mobility provider impressed in key criteria such as attractive weekly rates and access to 24/7 customer service and roadside assistance in North America. Additionally, SIXT stood out amongst competition for its first-class service, comprehensive premium vehicle fleet and fast, user-friendly rental processes.

The U.S. edition of Business Traveler is a monthly magazine distributed in airline lounges across all main North American airports, as well as private jet terminals, select private membership and country clubs, and high-end business hotels. The Business Traveler U.S. Awards celebrate the best in travel, including all areas of transportation, and nominees are chosen by a select panel of aviation writers, hospitality professionals and editors. SIXT was one of five car rental companies nominated for “Best Car Rental Company in North America.” The winners were selected by readers during a three-month voting window.
Following many years of recognition in Europe, the recognition received in North America confirms SIXT as a global leader in the car rental industry and proves that business travelers recognize the company’s consistent high-quality service and premium fleet all over the world.
