The Sixt rental group UK has followed on the recent launch of its new iSixt iPhone reservation application by announcing that it will now offer UK customers the ability to make mobile rental reservations through Blackberry phones.

The new application is compatible with Blackberry’s Bold, Pearl, Storm and Curve models and the Sixt offering has been tailored specifically to Blackberry’s operating capabilities. Potential customers need only take up the free download offer to have instant access to a range of innovative services, including the capacity to reserve vehicles from all of Sixt’s available vehicle categories and also utilise the GPS-based search engine service to determine the location of the nearest Sixt depot.

Designed and optimised to enable fast transfer rates, the Sixt Blackberry application provides an effortless and smooth reservation booking process which offers text message booking confirmation.

The service comes with a unique MySixt page for customers where visibility is provided of the details of existing reservations as well as offering the option to amend, cancel or change bookings.

Logging on with the Sixt Blackberry application also enables users to access their individual rates as assigned to their Sixt customer car, while corporate and business users will also be able to access their agreed upon discounts.

Sixt’s commercial director Per Voegerl welcomes the new partnership, which is aimed squarely at providing both individual and corporate customers with as much flexibility in bookings as possible. The simple download and install process will give Sixt Blackberry users a faster and user friendly rental service from the rental operator, along with numerous exclusive mobile offers and benefits.
