German Minister Ulla Schmidt decided to take her government limousine (including chauffeur) on vacation to Spain, where it got stolen during her stay. The whole incident raised a lot of questions in Germany about the costs incured and whether or not she should have taken it to Spain in the first place. No – says Sixt car rental, that would not have been necessary. Here is a screenshot of their website these days. (Click on the image to get a larger view). Nice and very timely response by Sixt.


The copy says: „on vacation with your staff car? There is a Sixt even in Alicante“

And the sticker mentions the theft-insurance included in the rental rate.
