Sixt offers long-term rentals just like other major rental agencies. In our research, we found monthly rates from Sixt starting around $1,226.38. The downside is that there are only about 100 Sixt locations across the country. But if there’s one in your travel area, it’s worth checking out.
Sixt also offers car subscriptions through its Sixt+ program. Just like you can subscribe to Netflix one month and cancel it the next, you can pay a monthly rate to drive a car from Sixt and cancel whenever you want. Sixt+ requires a $199 upfront payment and a monthly fee. You can also change out your vehicle depending on availability.
Sixt+ has great rates compared to leasing and long-term rentals from other agencies. Rates start at $649 per month for midsize sedans and go up to $1,159 per month for luxury SUVs. The program is only available at 39 Sixt locations, however. You’ll pay more for cars at the airport or at New York City locations.

Turo is a car-sharing marketplace where you can find cheap rental car rates depending on your area. Don’t discount it for long-term rentals. You can find listings advertising long-term rentals for a variety of vehicles. It’s up to the vehicle owner to decide how they want to rent out their car.
Our team found rates for as low as $834.00 per month. The longer you book on Turo, the lower your daily rate can be. We found over 200 listings in Orlando for $1,000 per month or less. These listings were mostly economy or midsize cars that were a bit older.
