Sixt is an established car rental firm with services available in more than 105 countries. They’ve now launched Sixt+, a car subscription service that allows drivers to subscribe to a car for as little as one month.
Like other car subscription services, you pay a fixed monthly fee to drive the car of your choice. This fee includes all the essential payments (like MOT, servicing, and road tax), so drivers don’t need to worry about unexpected maintenance fees. Everything’s taken care of upfront.
Sixt+ is an established name, with locations all over the UK (and even internationally). So no matter where you live, you’ll have relatively close access to a Sixt station. Plus, the Sixt app makes it easy for you to manage your car subscription from your phone.
You can subscribe to a Sixt+ car online. Here’s how it works:
Sixt+ car subscriptions have a maximum duration of 90 days, or three subscription periods of 30 days each. So you can renew your subscription twice before you must return the car. This works for short term subscribers, but it’s not the best for those who want the option of driving their car for longer periods.
To be eligible for a Sixt+ car subscription, you must:
Sixt+ car subscription costs currently range from £769 to £2,299 per month for a basic subscription with zero added extras — making this one of the more expensive car subscription services.
The cost of a basic Sixt+ car subscription includes:
You’re also required to pay a one-off subscription fee of £249 or £499, and a variable security deposit. The deposit is refunded on return of the car.
You’ll also pay more for any added extras, such as roadside assistance, courtesy cars, additional drivers, and child seats. As a result, Sixt+ doesn’t offer that many benefits as standard — but it gives you greater control over which extras you want to include.
Sixt+ may be a good choice for people looking to take out a car subscription with an established company. It’s more expensive and less flexible than many other services, but if you want the reassurance of a familiar name, it may be the right choice for you.
This subscription service is best if you only need a car for the short-term (i.e. 3 months or less). This can work if you want to test drive a car before you make a purchase (although be mindful that you may not be assigned the exact car you choose online).
Sixt+ doesn’t include too many benefits as standard, so you’ll pay a premium to include fairly basic perks like roadside assistance. However, there are lots of add-ons to choose from, so it’s good for those who want a no-frills or heavily customised car subscription.
