My time in the UK for Sixt rent a car


In this post I would like to describe my 5 weeks internship time for Sixt in the UK. First of all, a short introduction about myself. My name is Martin and I’m a university student from Germany and as part of my degree studies I am working for Sixt every term between my semesters. Usually I work in the German Headquarters in Munich, but this term I took the chance to work abroad and I decided to go to the United Kingdom, to be exact to the Sixt UK head office in Chesterfield.

I have never been to the United Kingdom before, so I did not know much about the country but that changed during my stay in Chesterfield and I am really starting to love the UK. Anyhow, on my first day I had two shocking experiences: first, the temperature change. Whilst the temperature in Munich was about 25 degrees, I arrived on a rainy and much colder day at Manchester airport. At the airport I hired a car from the local Sixt rent a car branch to drive to Chesterfield. And driving on the left side was a very tough challenge! I felt tense and had to frequently change the way I normally would look from the left to the right side and vice versa to ensure I didn’t drive too close to the edge of the street. Nevertheless, I arrived healthy in Chesterfield and as from now on I decided to use the buses and trains to make my way around the UK.

The next day was my first working day and I joined the Online Marketing Team where I learned a lot about online marketing, search engine optimisation and data analysis during my stay. After work I went with my colleagues for dinner and had my first Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding which I really enjoyed. Incidentally I really prefer the English food. I will miss all the Yorkshire Puddings, Chips & Fish and amounts of sandwiches and burgers when I return to Germany.

I travelled a lot around the North of England and visited cities and places in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, York, Nottingham, Sheffield and the lovely Peak District National Park. The weekend I spent in Manchester was especially good because it was the day of the Champions League final between Manchester and Barcelona and the atmosphere in the pub was impressive and reached its peak after Rooney scored the equaliser. Unfortunately, the atmosphere declined in the second half…

Regrettably, this is my last week in the UK and I have to go back to Germany afterwards, but not before going to London to visit the capital city with its touristic highlights. Altogether I can look back on a very interesting time with a lot of positive experiences and friendships and I’m sure I will come back to the UK sometime in the future as there are still a lot of nice places I did not have the time to visit.
