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. 

Summer in the USA

Summer is the perfect time to explore the unique natural landscapes of the USA. Soak up the heat with a southern road trip or cool off with a hiking trip in one of the many national parks like Yosemite in the West or the Great Smoky Mountains in the East. Our compact cars and convertibles are perfect for cruising the coastline while sturdy 4x4 and pickups will take you further inland. Add a sat nav to your booking to guide you along the most scenic routes the country has to offer.

I was picked up fast for the shuttle coming and going. I received my car in 15min of arriving to the rental center. The staff was pleasant and they had water and cookies available while you waited. I recommend them for all LAX travel. Trust me I've had disastrous experiences w other agencies.

Luis A.

A great vehicle and excellent customer service. I will definitely come back to your Seattle location. Thank you!

Hanne De G.

We got our car from a nice lady Justice Simpson. She was really friendly and stayed even after her shift to give us our car.

Amir K.

I rented a car by a lady in sixth (Ty) for a month. She helped me a lot with changing my cars because I wanted to try some more cars. I left my gate opener remote into one of the cars, and she found it for me… she did a really good job and the best customer service in Sixth.

Mathew W.

Emily helped us today to pick up a car. We are on the island for an extended layover. She was able to quickly get us a last minute rental, in the price point we wanted, as well as helping us find some local places that we decided to check out. Thank you for the help Emily!


THE BEST. I will never use any other rental car agency in the future. I'm so glad they made their way to the US from Europe. This is a very different experience than any other rental car agencies I had an encounter with before. Highly recommend it!

Mele from car sixt was awesome and super nice, I arrived super late from a ton of delays in my flights and she was able to get me a rental still. Will for sure be coming back.


What an amazing experience, Marisol was an absolute charm. Soo very kind and caring, you never see this in the rental car industry. I'm very glad I chose this location to rent a brand new Suburban for over an month. 😃

Timothy M.

Lee was amazing. He explained all my insurance options but wasn’t pushy. We had a great conversation as we walked through the paperwork.


Car was awesome and you can’t beat the experience.

Randy C.

THE BEST - Easiest in and out experience of my lifetime in regards to renting a car. Go see Chris - their manager - GREAT guy. They put aside a brade new X7 for us to rent - it was cleaned inside & out and filled up with gas. We'll keep coming back - were customers for life.

Joseph E.

Matthew Rappaport is the best associate. Offered me other options I might like. Price was better than all the other rental companies and the car was outstanding. Driving a hot BMW convertible

Rene N.

Neomai was terrific! She made sure we knew how to use the car’s gadgets and gave us directions to good food close by.

Stu B.

Although the website enables you to book a reservation online, it is advisable to book in person. The car I wanted was not available at the time I booked it for. However, the manager stepped in and dropped the price of the rental for my troubles.

Lisa J.
