I saw the above advert for Sixt car hire in Europe recently. Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring holds a set of car keys alluringly.

A quick word of consumer advice; don't use Enterprise car hire. We booked a car with them weeks in advance, but when we went to pick it up they'd cancelled the booking (for which they only give you a two hour pick up window) and wouldn't offer us a replacement car. In fact, they were militantly unhelpful. Happily, Sixt came to the rescue.
