Slightly odd to base a holiday around potential upgrades but as you asked - Nice Airport but off-peak only.

German offices should also give reasonable upgrades but not always. I suggest you book the car you will be happy to drive and then anything better is a bonus. Relying on an upgrade is a path to dissapointment

Munich Airp. and Dusseldorf Airport mostly offer a good choice of premium cars.
Zurich also has great cars, but its a hit and miss getting a reasonable upgrade.

Yes, they really have a phantastic fleet here, though in my experience, even as Diamond it is hard to get more than a one-level upgrade, even during low frequent periods.

I also agree for Munich station.
Based on my experience, I also got wonderful upgrades at CDG airport.

my Sixt Upgrades

Hi

I have made very good experiences many times at BCN, except for the current rental, when we got exactly the Golf that we booked (and at exactly the same rate that anybody else would get, no trace of any Plat discount). Also made good experiences in VIE.
