Sixt and UNA Hotels & Resorts Extend Deals on Car Rentals and Hotel Packages: Both Lower Prices in Italy During September and October

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 16, 2012

Sixt, Germanys number one car rental company with locations all over Europe and in the United States, is making travel a bit more appealing for its international customers. Sixt has announced it will offer lower car rental rates at all of its locations in Italy to its international customers during September and October. UNA Hotels & Resorts, one of Sixts best Italian hotel partners, has cooperated with Sixt to offer lower rates on hotel rooms to Sixt customers on vacation in Italy during this time, as well.

Sixt suggests that its American customers travel to Italy in September and October, rather than in August, to capitalize on the more relaxing atmosphere and better deals.

August is the traditional vacation month for both Italians and international visitors to Italy, which means that the most popular urban and coastal Italian destinations are extremely crowded and expensive. International travelers who delay their vacation to Italy until September and October will find smaller crowds, nicer weather, and lower prices.

Car Rental Deals

Sixt is offering the following deals on its car rentals at its Italian locations during September and October:

Weekly rentals with pickup on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday starting from 22.71 per day for a Fiat 500 and 32.85 per day for a Renault Megane Sportour

Weekend rentals with pickup on Friday or Saturday and drop-off on Sunday or Monday starting from 23 per day for a Fiat 500 and 34 a day for a Renault Megane Sportour

To book a Sixt car rental with these lower rates, American customers can refer to and call the Sixt Calling Center at 1-888-SIXT-CAR (1-888-7498-227), referring to CD Number 9846837.

Lower Hotel Rates

In collaboration with Sixt, UNA Hotels & Resorts presents exclusive, unique, and personalized weekend rates reserved for Sixt customers in Italy during September and October. The following example reflects nightly rates for one two-person room, with breakfast and free Internet connection included:

Naples from 73
Milan from 83
Bologna from 79
Tuscany from 88

Booking a UNA hotel room with this offer is simple. Customers just need to visit the website, choose their destination, and make an online reservation by typing in the code C-SIXT.

The offer is valid for stays starting between August 31 and November 4, 2012. In case of any change of plans, customers can cancel reservations up to one day before the arrival date without paying any penalty.

UNA Hotels & Resorts offers three different types of accommodation choices:

UNA Hotels: elegant hotels in cities
UNA Resorts: sophisticated residences in the country or by the sea, specializing in fitness and wellness
UNAWAY Hotels: quality hotels outside cities on main road connections

UNA has always paid particular attention to the new trends in Italian design and architecture, collaborating with some of the most important Italian architects. These contemporary hotels are characterized by a unique style, a strong technological tendency, a particular focus on design and detail, and a seamless connection with the surrounding environment.
