Accor Signs Loyalty Partnership with Sixt
Car rental company Sixt has signed a partnership with French hospitality giant Accor. The deal will provide additional attractive benefits for guests and employees of Accor – worldwide and free of charge. It will also increase the global brand visibility for Sixt among business and leisure customers.
As part of the long-term collaboration, members of the ALL loyalty scheme from Accor can collect points when they book a rental car with Sixt. Members benefit from packages (200 to 500 points for the ALL loyalty program) when they book a car rental with Sixt; this will be added to their existing number of points, meaning more opportunities to enjoy the many benefits of the ALL ecosystem.
