Motoring with Lady Strakes Column: Sixt the silent assassins

Milton Keynes petrolhead Lady Strakes explains how renting a car or van is stress free and so convenient with this local Sixt branch.

Mark and his team at the MK branch of Sixt are killing the car rental market with their customer service.

I’ll tell you why. Sixt have 24 branches all over the UK and operate in 10 countries worldwide.

Firstly, they are the only rental company to offer drivers 25 years-old and over, with one year’s experience, the opportunity to rent a van or car.

When I walked through the doors at Sixt, I knew I needed a van to move house. The vans were brand new, automatic and big enough to move a small house.

I was so impressed with the team, who were super amazing, that I decided to get the app and rent something to treat myself at a later date. There was so much choice on the market and many questions I asked myself.

Do I go budget, or do I go for the added extras?

With the Sixt app, it was super easy to pick and choose what I wanted, without searching endless comparison sites on the laptop.

Sixt offered me an upgrade too, when I booked for the third time, after the work trip rental wasn’t quite right.

Without hesitation, as and when I booked again, they gave me a brand new, pocket rocket Golf, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The weekend break to the beach was well worth the drive.

This is what I mean when Sixt go out of their way for genuine customer service, each and every time.

If you want something that’s a bit posh, no hidden fees, cars that are usually no older than three months old, and no credit card fees, these are your guys. What would be your car of choice?

Lucky Dips Start at £61 for the weekend.

Go treat yourself, I did! Let Sixt know you’re a Celebrate:MK reader on your next booking.
