SIXT Rent a Car in the USA

With unlimited options for urban and outdoor adventures, having 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 car rental in the USA 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.

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. 

Summer in the USA

When the weather is warm during the summer months, the Great Lakes are a wonderful place to visit. The freshwater lakes are lined with white sand beaches and many opportunities for outdoor adventure. You can also head to the cooler climate of the Pacific Northwest. Start from Seattle and explore its culture and waterfront, then head into Olympic National Park. No matter where you are in the USA on the Fourth of July, look out for fireworks and celebrations.

This was the cheapest car rental at Denver airport. I made quotes for all and they were the cheapest. They have high end cars, so if your looking for an economy, they will automatically upgrade you to a Nissan Altima or Ford bronco. Most of their cars are bmws. Employees are friendly. The car was not clean, so they could improve there. Also, book on any other browser other than Google and get a cheaper rate.

Best rental experience I’ve had inside the USA.

Jeff S.

Efficient, friendly car rental. I booked online and picked up from the location. The staff was quick and efficient and the car matched what I had expected from the booking.


The car was pretty new, with the normal grab bag of options for it's trim level that you'd expect of a rental.


Returning the car was simple and handled quickly. There is a shuttle to take you back to the airport nearby and the driver was very friendly and helpful.

John A.

Everything was great except for the half-hour wait for the shuttle at LA airport. I literally saw about 50 of their competitors' shuttles go past in the time I waited for Sixt. The return trips weren't a problem.

Jeff P.

Very convenient location.

Tiggs M.

The car didn’t have a full tank when I picked it up and didn’t notice until I left the lot. I left a few messages with no return call back. Rental was fine other then that.

Laura P.

They are the best to rent from. We love Isabel! After a long day of travel she was so incredibly kind to us and to our kids. It was unexpected but it makes a huge difference. Thank you!! We will definitely be renting from them again.

Carlos D.

Great value, you get better cars at a competitive price.

Ido K.

Great experience overall, we got upgraded, no need to wait in line - and especially Caleb K. Was extremely helpful and nice!

We will definitely come again when needed
