Starting this August, Lyft riders in Seattle, Las Vegas, and Miami will be able to rent a SIXT car through the Rentals tab in the Lyft app. Following this three-city launch, Lyft plans to expand to all cities within the SIXT rental network in the U.S.
Reservations can be made directly from the Lyft app and the service will be available soon on the brand new Lyft Rentals website.
Cal Lankton, Lyft’s VP Fleet & Global Operations, says: “Partnering with SIXT enables us to rapidly expand the reach of our rentals in a time when customers are looking for hassle-free and intuitive transportation solutions. With our vision for car rentals, we are offering a completely integrated, frictionless, and transparent experience for transportation that renters have come to love.”
Sebastian Birkel, President SIXT United States, adds: “With Lyft, we have an innovative partner at our side with whom we are already working successfully – since 2019, SIXT customers in the USA have been able to use Lyft’s service under the “SIXT ride” tab via our SIXT App. We are now very excited to expand this cooperation by the integration of our rental products into the Lyft app starting in August.”
With the existing Lyft Rentals fleet, the company has implemented new safety protocols to protect our renters. This includes contactless pickups and returns, enhanced cleaning protocols, and a commitment to helping our renters with prevention by offering disinfectant to renters upon request at no cost to them.
