Don't believe reduced rates for LH Senators at Sixt Car Rental

Getting the right rate when renting a car sometimes can be more arduous (and hilarious for that matter) than getting the right air fare.

When renting a car with Sixt recently, I have made a mistake by quoting the contract ID for "special low" rates that Lufthansa negotiated with Sixt for its Senator customers.

They do give you a reduced rate, but it is usually only 15 % to 25 % less than the ordinary rate at best.

Instead what one should do is to apply for a "Sixt Platinum Card" (go to www.sixt.com and click on "cards") which is free for any top tier member of most major FF programmes.

It entitles you to a 35 % discount on all public rates PLUS a free upgrade.

Just make sure that Sixt does not store the LH contract ID on your file because then you will end up with the scenario decribed before.
