USA car hire FAQ

How can I rent a car in the USA?

In order to hire a car in the USA you'll need an original driving licence which is valid for the entire period you wish to rent a car for. With your UK licence you won't require an International Drivers Permit. When picking up your hire car you will also have to show a valid passport. Renters with a licence printed in a non-Roman alphabet (Japanese, Russian, etc.) must have an International Driver’s Permit.

How long can I hire a car for?

It's possible to hire a car in the USA for as little as one day up to 365 days at a time.

How old do I have to be to hire a car in the USA?

The minimum age to hire a car in the USA 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.

When booking online or on the SIXT app you'll be able to filter the available car categories by age. For drivers under the age of 25 a young driver fee may apply.

Can I book a one-way car hire in the USA?

Yes, it's possible to pick up your hire car at one location in the USA and return it to another. If you're looking to do a road trip across America or along the West Coast then a one-way car hire is perfect. We have many branches on both coasts of the USA making this sort of trip possible.

Is it cheaper to rent a car for a week?

Yes, in general the longer you book your hire car for, the lower the daily rate becomes. So if you rent a car for a week rather than just a couple of days, you'll enjoy a lower daily rate.

How do I pay tolls in my rental car?

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.

Best places to visit in the USA

  • New York: The city that never sleeps is a world-renowned historical and cultural centre, famed for landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. No trip to this vibrant hub would be complete without sampling its multicultural cuisine, as colourful and unique as the people who live there. 
  • Dallas: The metropolitan city has plenty to offer arts and sports fans alike. Discover Texan charm with a wander around scenic outdoor trails and a visit to the museums and opera house at the Arts District. Round off your day with a Tex-Mex barbecue or catch a baseball or football game at one of the city’s many stadiums. 
  • Los Angeles: Get a glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous in the city of angels. Iconic attractions like the Hollywood sign, Walk of Fame and production studios spotlight the city’s significance as the home of film and television. The vast city reaches from the Santa Monica mountains, perfect for outdoor pursuits, to the Pacific coastline where you can catch a wave or relax on the beach.
