SIXT Car Rental USA

With unlimited options for urban and outdoor adventures, a car rental in the USA is the best way to experience the country. And with SIXT’s incredible number of conveniently located branches, road trips become an exciting option. Your US car rental can be tailored to your needs and you can choose from a broad range of first-class auto manufactureres. If urban fun is what you’re craving, choose a sedan and explore the cities of the northeast, like Boston, New York and Philadelphia. If you rent a car in the USA for a trip that leads you off the beaten path—perhaps in the Rocky Mountains or Yosemite National Park—opt for an SUV.

One-way car rental in the USA

It is generally allowed to rent a car one-way between SIXT locations. If you would like to make a one-way rental, you can simply select a different return location in our booking tool. An additional fee may apply.

Crossing Borders

In general, you can drive your car rental in the state where you rented it and states immediately surrounding it. You are not allowed to take SIXT rental cars into Canada or Mexico.


There are many toll roads in the US. If the area where you plan to travel has toll roads, consider adding Express Toll Unlimited to your rental to avoid having to wait in line at toll plazas.

Car rental under 25 in the USA

The minimum age to rent a car is 21 - except for the state of New York, where the minimum age is 18. However, some specialty and larger car categories require renters to be 25 or older. An underage fee may apply to those under 25.

Documents you need to rent a car in the USA

All renters must present a valid driver’s license. International renters also need to show a valid passport. Renters with a license using a non-Roman alphabet (Japanese, Russian, etc.) must also have an International Driver’s Permit. 

Best places to visit in the USA

  • Texas: Texas evokes images of cowboy culture, which is true for much of the state where there are rodeos and livestock events. However, Texas also has cities like Dallas, Houston, and Austin, where you can hike in the green belt, float the river, or find new music and craft cocktails on 6th Street. If you’re a history buff, head to the Alamo in San Antonio, or, for a romantic night, try the River Walk. 
  • New England: Peppered with beautiful towns along its coast, New England is rife with stunning vistas, superb seafood and outdoor recreation. Hiking enthusiasts should head to the White Mountains—the Presidential Range is home to some of the best trails in the country. For an urban trip, walk the cobblestone streets of Boston, where you’ll find quaint local shops nestled into centuries-old brick buildings. 
  • Napa Valley: If you are visiting the West Coast, be sure not to skip Napa Valley, where the gorgeous chateau-style vineyards beckon visitors to try the local wines. When you’re not vineyard hopping, the picturesque region offers world-class restaurants, opportunities for cycling, boutique shops and romantic five-star resorts. 

Winter in the USA

With its vast territory, the USA has a climate for every traveler’s preference. If you are looking to escape the blustering winter months and put your toes in the sand, Hawaii, southern California and Florida all present opportunities for beach vacations year-round. For travelers seeking to capitalize on feet-upon-feet of snowfall, the Rocky Mountains in Colorado host countless ski resorts, such as Vail, Aspen and Telluride.

First time ever renting from Sixt. Been a loyal Alamo customer for years, but you may have lured me over. Great experience with pickup agent. He easily upgraded us to a larger vehicle once we realized our luggage was too large. Friendly and competent. Vehicle was awesome, no extra charge to use navigation, fully loaded and low miles, really comfortable to drive. Return was great too, young lady was really friendly and professional. Great job!

Greg G.

Daniel provided amazing customer service! This was my first time renting with Sixt and I would definitely come back

B M.

All good, desk staff, handover staff, no complaints at all. It's just the puzzling industry wide standard that no company makes the cleanup crews clean the inside glass. How hard can it be?
