Company: Sixt
Status: Diamond


I have a rental coming up in three weeks with Sixt in MIA -- they just opened in MIA some time within the last year.  Didn't know they had Diamond or any similar designations....think they would match from Hertz?  I may try and give it a shot prior to  the upcoming rental...

depending on the place they have to pick you up and if they cant they pay you for a taxi so if you call half hour b4 the close they usually dont have anyone to pick up, so i just get a ride.
so you mean 5star gold actually gets you real upgrades? even in brooklyn?

as a rule of thumb in brooklyn all agents are nasty (they have to put up with more then agents in other cities)
i had a agent refuse to upgrade me even though im 5 star, when i returned i got a discount from branch manager

I think Sixt diamond is only given to friends of Mrs Sixt (owner).

That's Frau Sixt to you!  Does Platinum still exist for Sixt?  I'm going to call their CS group in the UK tomorrow (they don't yet have one here in the US) and inquire about status match from Hertz

Brooklyn hertz has very good service if ur 5 star from my experience and what i heard from others.
5 star gives u upgrades when available and why would Brooklyn be diff?
if the location you rented from didnt have or didnt wanto give u a free upgrade with 5 star you can always go to another location which does have availible and they have to give it to you
