Door-to-door travel: Sixt and KDS expand partnership

September 20, 2018

  • Mobility solutions such as Sixt mydriver and Sixt Chauffeur Service are now available through KDS Neo’s comprehensive booking system

Pullach, 17 September 2018 – Sixt, the international mobility service provider, and KDS, the leader in business travel technology, will be working even closer together in business travel management. This gives companies the option of seamless planning of their employees’ business trips and optimal cost transparency.

The uncomplicated organization of the business travel of their employees is an important factor for many companies – both in time and financially. The integration of Sixt mobility services into the comprehensive booking system KDS Neo therefore offers significant added value. These include seamless connection mobility, for example after flights, an overarching and simple booking process and significant savings. The powerful KDS tool is characterized by a high level of user-friendliness as well as the consistent application of the individual travel policies and reports of the respective company.

Sixt mydriver is available in around 250 cities worldwide and scores points among its users with its transparent fixed prices, reliable scheduling and enhanced services such as airport transfers. Business travellers can pick up directly at the terminal and continue their journey comfortably and smoothly. The exclusive Sixt Chauffeur Service caters to the needs of customers and travellers with high expectations in more than 60 countries around the world. The two transfer solutions are among the chauffeured services of the international mobility service provider Sixt.

Michael Schneider, Managing Director of Sixt Chauffeured Services: “The door-to-door approach of KDS Neo and the innovative mobility offerings from Sixt are a perfect match. The integration of Sixt mydriver and the Sixt Limousine Service into KDS Neo offers companies the opportunity to streamline their booking processes and increase the transparency of their employees’ business travel activities. This saves valuable time and thus costs. At the same time, the traveller enjoys the benefits of a transfer service tailored to their mobility needs. ”

Annicka Lofstrand, VP Sales – Northern Europe and Global Partners at KDS: “We are pleased to be able to expand our growing supply of ground transportation with this partnership. Deploying Sixt mydriver on the KDS Neo platform provides the traveller with a convenient and seamless transfer service to get to their destination with less stress and effort. KDS Neo offers companies the ability to book direct ground transfer services as part of their end-to-end travel itinerary, in line with our vision to integrate the first and last mile of the trip into a single booking process along with traditional flight, train and hotel elements. ”
