Hey, US rental car companies do it...let's see what Regina Sixt has up her sleeve...

Basic rules:

My turn:

- Gold at the time
- Duesseldorf HBF
- Smart
- BMW 118d

Reserved a SMART for a week and used an Upgrade voucher. Called to extend and kept the car for 4 weeks for the same SMART weekly rate...SWEET

Thats about as a good an upgrade as one could wish for!

Had the Bmw 730d in Malaga last month - what an awesome car. 900km from a tank.

Do you get upgraded all the time with the Diamond card or is it as sporadic as the Platinum..??

From my experience Diamond is really makes a difference. For me it is not (all) about the upgrades but also the chance to get an automatic or a Diesel if you what to. And the agents definitely go the extra miles and try to fulfill such special requests. ^

Just out of interest do you guys ever call a day before and ask about an upgrade or you prefer to wait until arriving at the hire station and dealing with it there..??
