As a young person you may have faced barriers when it comes to hiring a vehicle, which is why Sixt offers you a varied selection of rentals cars for those under 25, available with a student discount too!
All you need to provide us with to receive our student discount offer, is to book a car within your correct age range via our special booking process and to bring all correct documents (including of course your NUS extra card!) when you go to pick it up.
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 and young drivers under the age of 25 to get a car or van hire.
When hiring a car in the UK, you need to be 21 or over and have held your driving licence for a minimum of 1 year. However, this rule applies only to some categories of our rental vehicles. Other categories, namely the more luxury car models, require an older age and a longer driving licence possession.
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.
Unfortunately due to insurance requirements, all drivers under 25 will be required to pay a young driver's surcharge of £36 a day. For more information, please read the Sixt terms and conditions, driver's requirements FAQs and rental information before booking or contact our helpful customer services.
