• AirPlus Company Account now available as a central means of payment for SIXT rent and SIXT ride via all of SIXT’s digital booking channels
• Corporate customers receive a consolidated and transparent overview of their travel expenses when traveling worldwide
• Cooperation contributes to both SIXT’s digitalization and internationalization strategy and to AirPlus’s goal of further simplifying business travel management for customers through seamless end-to-end processes
SIXT and AirPlus International are making life even easier for business travelers: From now on, all bookings of SIXT rent (car rental) and SIXT ride (taxi and transfer services) can be paid and settled centrally, digitally and internationally in the SIXT App with an AirPlus Company Account. Furthermore, the mobility company and the payment provider now also offer this option for SIXT ride bookings on the SIXT website, thus consistently expanding their cooperation. Business travelers can thus flexibly access SIXT’s wide range of mobility services depending on their travel needs. In addition, corporate customers receive a consolidated overview of travel costs that can be transparently assigned based on additional information, such as cost centers or project numbers.
Vinzenz Pflanz, President of Corporate Sales at SIXT: “I am very pleased to further expand the cooperation with AirPlus International. AirPlus is considered one of the most important providers of solutions for business travel management. SIXT is once again placing customer needs at the center of its technical innovations with the popular and proven central billing service in our SIXT App and on our website. We are also making another valuable contribution to the provision of state-of-the-art digital end-to-end solutions, from booking and mobility to billing and control.”
Yaël Klein, Director of Marketing at AirPlus: “SIXT and AirPlus have been working together successfully for many years. SIXT offers customers an attractive range of mobility services that they can use quickly and easily with the app. We are pleased that by integrating the AirPlus Company Account, we are contributing to making not only booking, pickup and drop-off intuitive and easy, but also payment and billing – thanks to the extension to SIXT ride also for taxi and transfer services. Companies will benefit from the seamless process and centralized billing with high data quality.”
New customers who have an AirPlus Account only need to register once, as needed, in the SIXT App or the SIXT website and create a dedicated SIXT booking profile for business travel. Corporate customers can monitor the invitations to this as well as the user management themselves via the newly established central SIXT Business Hub. The Business Hub is a 24/7 self-service tool that is available in the travel manager’s account on the SIXT website and requires no additional login. Existing customers will automatically receive access to the new payment option in their SIXT App.
