OUR SIXT NETWORK
Our global SIXT network generally remains operational. There might be certain territorial restrictions in highly affected coronavirus areas where we had to adapt our opening hours. In any case, we will proactively contact our customers to find a solution together (e.g. pick up at another branch nearby, delivery, etc.)
All information related to our SIXT network can be found directly on our website by using our reservation tool.
OUR CURRENT HYGIENE MEASURES
We would like you to know that we have introduced additional hygiene measures that go above and beyond our already rigorous cleaning standards so that we always provide the safest possible environment for our customers and employees in these extraordinary times.
HYGIENE STANDARDS IN OUR BRANCHES
We have distributed hygiene materials and introduced intensive cleaning processes to minimize virus transmission in our branches. Additionally, we are following the recommendations of the WHO to reduce the risk of transmission during the Coronavirus outbreak by updating our operations, for example:
- Instructing our employees to wash their hands thoroughly.
- Building plexiglass counter screens in all branches.
- All of our agents with customer contact are wearing face masks to protect themselves as well as customers. We also require that customers wear a face covering inside all SIXT USA branches.
Face Covering Requirement
To protect you and our employees, it is now required to wear a face mask or face covering inside all SIXT branches in the US. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with this additional safety measure.
We have introduced further practices to better maintain social distancing:
- Displaying signage and adding floor markers to guide customers at the branch and preserve distancing.
- If required by the local authorities, we are limiting the number of employees and customers in a location.
