There are many ways to leverage elite perks (or the right credit card) to obtain car rental status — even if you don’t rent cars frequently. If you’re a Marriott elite, there’s now an under-the-radar opportunity to obtain status with German car rental company SIXT.
Here are the details.
How to Status Match Marriott to SIXT
SIXT, a car rental company with about 2,000 locations in more than 100 countries, is offering the ability to status match from Marriott.
The company has a loyalty program called SIXT Advantage Circle with three levels: Gold, Platinum, and Titanium. By using this link to submit a status match request, Marriott elites can match up to SIXT’s mid-tier Platinum status.
Here’s how the status matching works:
- Marriott Bonvoy Silver and Gold Elites can match to Gold SIXT Card
- Marriott Bonvoy Platinum and Titanium Elites can match to Platinum SIXT Card
Benefits of Gold SIXT status include up to a 10% discount on car and truck rentals and no charges for additional drivers for all rentals in the U.S. Typically, Gold SIXT Card is available to U.S.-based customers who rent at least 3 times per year.
Meanwhile, Platinum SIXT status confers free upgrades (upon availability) and up to a 15% discount on car and truck rentals. Platinum SIXT Card status is available for those customers who rent at least 10 times yearly.
In addition to the status benefits, SIXT customers can earn Marriott Bonvoy points with every rental.
- 750 points for every rental with SIXT rent a car worldwide or
- 3 points per every $1 spent with SIXT
Most major car rental companies will match the existing status you have with a competing program. Here’s our complete guide to status matching with car rental programs.
While this isn’t the most exciting status match in the world, it’s an easy way to save a few dollars on your next rental if you rent through SIXT. Marriott elites can match their status through the Platinum SIXT tier and enjoy valuable perks.
