Sixt is to offer 15 per cent discount off hire prices to over 80,000 business and leisure users across Leicester, Milton Keynes and Stevenage.
The agreement, signed with sustainable travel specialist, Go Travel Solutions will offer major savings on car hire in the UK for all members of the Smartgo sustainable travel networks in the three areas, plus members of the Business Travel Networks in Coalville and Loughborough in Leicestershire.
The collective membership of the Smartgo and Business Travel Networks – co-ordinated by Go Travel Solutions - is over 130 businesses, covering over 80,000 employees.
Per Voegerl, managing director commercial and administration at Sixt said: “Sixt understand the demand of businesses for cost and carbon effective transportation. With a wide branch network of 168 branches all over the UK and a large fleet of premium cars of all sizes, Sixt is able to provide flexible and convenient mobility solutions for private and corporate customers. To help optimise their business travel we are happy to support Go Travel Solutions with 15 per cent off car hire.”
Robin Pointon, managing director of Go Travel Solutions added: “Although it may come as a surprise to see car hire become part of a sustainable transport initiative, from a cost/carbon perspective, this agreement offers many benefits for members over private car use. Employers can save on fleet car costs for higher mileage users, hire cars are generally lower emission vehicles and the service also allows member businesses to exercise a duty of care to their employees in a more effective way.”
