About Sixt+

Sixt+ is a subscription service that operates as part of the global car rental company, Sixt. The service is available throughout the US, using existing Sixt rental locations and pools of cars, rather than specific vehicles, to ensure constant, immediate availability. Customers have access to a varying range of vehicles from the Sixt fleet, with a minimum commitment of 30 days, and short extensions available. Anyone over 21 can use the service, and prices cover a wide range to ensure accessibility.

How it works

Sixt’s subscription service works the same way as most of its standard dealership-based competitors:

  • Complete the sign-up process, during which Sixt will check your driver record and credit. You must be over 21 with a good credit rating.
  • Pay the joining fee and first month’s subscription up front. The fee includes insurance unless you inform them you would rather use your own, and you can pick from three levels. The minimum initial subscription is 30 days.
  • When your subscription end, you can take out a new one and receive a different vehicle or extend your current subscription for up to a year. You can add as many additional drivers you like, for a fee per driver.
  • Cancelation is only available at the end of the minimum term.

The car can be returned to any Sixt location, but there may be a fee. No deliveries are currently available but Sixt have locations across the country.

Cost and fees

Sixt+’s joining fee is currently $199, and they ask for a minimum subscription of 30 days. Prices start at $459 for a Kia Rio or similar Sedan. Their top range vehicles, such as the Range Rover Velar, are $1059 per month. This includes insurance, taxes, maintenance and roadside assistance. Cancelations before the agreed term will not entitle you to a refund, and excess mileage is charged per mile.

Sixt offer insurance terms in three tiers – Basic, Comfort, and Premium. While the basic package means you ar responsible for paying any damages to other cars, the Premium package covers large amounts of damage and injury, depending on the vehicle type. You can use your own insurance but must inform Sixt first.

The excess mileage fee varies per vehicle.

Brands and models

Sixt is a large rental company with fleets of cars that vary from site to site, so rather than offering specific cars, they offer groups of vehicles in ranges, based on size and spec. The sample range includes cars of all shapes and sizes:

Kia Rio, Toyota Yaris, Mini Countryman, VW Jetta, Toyota Camry, Toyota RAV4, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chrysler Pacifica, and several of the Mercedes range.

Notice periods

Sixt+ subscriptions can be cancelled at any time, but as the subscription runs month to month, there is no financial benefit to be had by cancelling before the end of a 30-day period. However, you can return your vehicle at any time, either to the same branch or, by arrangement, to another location. A fee is sometimes payable in this instance.

What’s special about Sixt+?

Sixt+’s subscription allows users to choose from a wide range of vehicles, all of which are either new or only a year old. As the service comes under the Sixt name, it is well known and therefore provides that extra layer of trust. Sixt have a fleet that includes many budget vehicles and as a result, they can provide affordability to lots of people.

However, the main draw for customers is accessibility in terms of location. As Sixt have offices across the States, they can reach many more customers than smaller firms and the chance to pick up and return at different locations offers an extra layer of convenience.

Social media

Sixt+ doesn’t have its own social media, but you can follow the latest developments with Sixt on the company’s main Facebook page.

Conclusion

Sixt+ is a subscription offering that operates under the global Sixt name. Rather than subscription tiers, the service offers a range of indicative vehicles with the understanding that the actual model may vary from location to location. While you can’t flip vehicle, you can renew month to month, effectively meaning that you will be able to change your ride once every 30 days. But as with its major competitors with the backing of global firms, it’s the range of choice and the feeling of security that customers often get from using a big, well-known name, that will represent the main reason to use Sixt+.

  2. If I could give -5 review I would. This has been the worse experience I’ve ever had with a car service. I was in love with Parkplace Select car subscription in Dallas but when I moved to Georgia I had to switch because they don’t offer in Georgia yet. I found that SIXT did and it has been a nightmare! The first month they gave me a car that needed a oil change, no windshield wiper fluid and a bum tire. Then I had to drive 1 hour to another location to replace it. When I got there they only had one car I could take which wasn’t even in my subscription plan..then the 2nd month I had a extra $400 charge not including the gas they added on the returned car from before that was completely filled! Now I’m on hold for an hour and still haven’t gotten through because they just charged me over $1,300 twice this month 🤬 I’m so pissed - from Kay | 2022-05-26
  3. Don’t expect anyone at the Sixt drop-off locations to know anything about Sixt-Plus subscriptions. I returned a vehicle after 3 months and 10 days to an airport location, where I had picked up the car; not only did the workers didn’t even know what Sixt-Plus was, the automatic system billed me as if for a 10 day rental (since Sixt-plus “renews” every month). The automatic billing system didn’t account for the monthly miles I had purchased, overcharging me as if I had driven 3,500 miles in 10 days (!). I was changed a whole month for the 10 days when the time should have been prorated. Also grossly overcharged for fuel, (3x the highway rate) when I had been informed that I didn’t need to return the car full. When I called the number, I was informed that I could only dispute by email, since an invoice had already been issued. (?) I wrote several emails, which were answered with an automated email that promised response within 3-5 business days, and waited three weeks. Nothing. Finally opened a dispute with my credit card company. Good idea but very poor business model. - from Daphnis | 2022-01-18
  4. Total, finals cost after fees, taxes, etc is quite a bit more than the stated monthly price. I signed up for a Jetta and despite going back to change cars 3 times during the 3 months I used the service I never got a Jetta, I ended up with 3 different SUVs (1 new and 2 kind of rough). Unlike a regular car rental, the customer service reps you work with have no option to accommodate your rental in any way through upgrades or anything like that if they don’t have the car you signed up for. You are locked into your car class for the duration whether they have a car available in that class or not and they cannot upgrade you to a higher class if they don’t have a car available in your class. I needed a car while I waited for an insurance pay out for a totaled vehicle and this service worked ok but in the end it was much more expensive than it was supposed to be between high gas usage for the SUVs they gave me, the mileage charges (not unlimited miles like most normal rentals), and the fees and taxes they don’t include in the posted monthly rate. I probably wouldn’t use this service again but overall it was not a terrible option. For normal rentals I prefer Sixt fleet over most other major rental chain options, though they tend to be a bit more expensive. - from Seth | 2021-11-21
  5. Just great. I had a great experience using this service. Recommendation. - from Ben | 2021-11-15
  6. Makes you pay 2x the cost for the first month (subscription + initiation) and then half the cost of the subscription as a down payment, Definitely not worth it + cost is outrageous for what you get. Porsche subscription is much better value. - from Alan | 2021-07-08
