Student and Young Driver Car Hire
As a young person you may have faced barriers when it comes to hiring a vehicle. Whether you need a van to transport your belongings to your new accommodation or a car to get you home to visit your family and friends, Sixt makes it easy for students under the age of 25 to get a car or van hire. Offering affordable rental cars for 21 year olds and older, Sixt can make that special road-trip or holiday a reality. Our student specials offer low rates with savings of up to 10% off our normal prices.
Sixt Student Discount FAQ
There is a wide range of cars available; we stock a number of smaller vehicles, such as the 3-door Vauxhall Corsa or Volkswagen Polo, for riding with a friend or two and plenty of storage space for luggage. For a trip requiring more space, a larger, 5-door saloon, such as the Volkswagen Golf or a Ford Focus would be ideal, providing extra storage space without losing any of the comfort. For moving house or shifting cargo, we hold a number of vans including a range of Ford Transits, available for those under 25.
Who can use it?
Anyone with a valid NUS card (Extra or Graduate Extra) can take advantage of these great offers. All you need to do is book your hire car online and bring your NUS card with you to the Sixt branch. Make sure you don’t forget it as we can’t give these special deals out to everyone so a valid NUS card must be presented. Normal Sixt age limits apply so you must be 21 to hire with us. Some vehicle categories have a higher minimum age so please check the terms and conditions before booking. If you are between the ages of 21-25 you will still be able to take advantage of these discounts and get a great rental car at low prices.
How old do I need to be?
Each of our vehicles has a minimum age limit, however as a special deal for students we have reduced this age limit to 21 on our ECMR car category and A van group.
Where can I rent from?
Our student discount is available at branches located in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Edinburgh and many are located near universities, airports and train stations.
How do I book?
Bookings can be made online using the normal Sixt hire car booking process. Your NUS card will be required upon collection of the vehicle. Any driver under the age of 25 will be required to pay an additional young driver surcharge of £36 per day due to insurance requirements.
